COVID-19 Update: All ongoing projects remain active with precautions in place according to OSHA and CDC guidelines. Staff across our five offices are staying safe by working remotely or by wearing masks and practicing social distancing while working on-site.

The Korte Company partnered with the U.S. Corps of Engineers and Joint Base Lewis McChord (JBLM) to deliver the two-story Design-Build 55,000 square foot Army Reserve Center facility (ARC). The scope of work also included 3,000 square foot unheated storage building (USB).

The LEED-Certified ARC’s steel framed construction included load-bearing concrete masonry and steel stud exterior walls with brick veneer and metal panel facades.  To improve overall building performance, the facility’s envelope incorporated a continuous air barrier system which encapsulated the occupied space, effectively minimizing air flow through the assemblies.

The floor and wall covering materials used throughout the building were selected not only for their sense of visual appeal, but for their durability.  All floor and wall covering materials are washable and easily cleaned via conventional commercial means. Another key goal was to utilize as many sustainable or “green” materials as possible while still maintaining an acceptable budget.

Site grading and on-site storm drainage systems were designed to collect and convey storm water runoff away from all proposed buildings and parking areas to multiple infiltration/detention (bio retention) basins. Utilities provided to the site included gas, domestic water, fire main, sewer, electrical, and communications.
