State-Of-The-Art Facility Design Helps Train Future Leaders

Project Description

  • Client: 
    U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Kansas City District
  • Location: 
    Fort Leavenworth, Kansas

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Kansas City District was looking to create a new, modern facility for the Command and General Staff College (CGSC) to meet its educational and operational needs. The goal was to create a state-of-the-art facility that matched the historic buildings already located on the CGSC campus in Ft. Leavenworth, Kan. Benham was hired to provide full architecture and engineering services and construction support for the 413,000-square-foot instruction facility.

The project was delivered using a whole building design process in which the construction contractor was on-board early in the design process. The integrated design approach asked the building stakeholder community and the technical design and construction team to look at the project objectives, materials, systems, and assemblies from many different perspectives. The Benham team provided innovation and creativity to the entire project, including application of advanced communication systems in classroom networks and audio-visual technology. The facility was also designed to meet the requirements for certification as a “sustainable project” using Sustainable Project Rating Tool (SPiRiT) Gold Level criteria.

Other services and technology included in the Lewis and Clark facility include:
