SCOPE: This K-9 Kennel and Training Facility project consists of 72-dog kennels and an administration building to support four new U.S. Army Mine Detection Dog Detachments. The construction also includes the clearing, grubbing, and excavation to proper grades for construction on an 11-acre site.
The building structures are masonry-bearing exterior walls with a light gauge metal truss roof system, metal panels on the exterior and a standing seam metal roof. Three parking lots were constructed totaling 25,000 SF of concrete slab and 3,500 SF feet of asphalt. Site work entailed new site utilities including gas; electric; storm sewer; sanitary sewer; and water. Building finishes consist of painted drywall; ceramic tile; resilient flooring; standard casework; and specialties. The dog kennels include precast houses with a wire mesh partitioning system. This project achieved LEED Gold certification.
