LEED BD+C: New Construction v2.2
P-1100 Wounded Warrior Battalion Hqtrs
MCB Camp Pendleton, CA 92055
LEED Platinum 2012
The LEED program served as a guideline that helped define the thresholds of quality that would be necessary to consider the project as a high performance facility. Using these benchmarks, the project team was able to champion issues of environmental responsibility by delivering a solution that challenged their understanding of sustainable design.
The P-1100 Battalion Headquarters facility is a LEED Platinum, two-story office and administration facility that serves the Wounded Warrior Campus on the Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base in Oceanside, California. This 9,400 sf facility consists of offices, classrooms, conference areas and multi-purpose rooms to support the neighboring buildings on the Wounded Warrior Campus: P-1005 Bachelor Enlisted Quarters (BEQ) and the P-060 Hope and Care Center. Constructed in the second phase of the Wounded Warrior Campus project, the P-1100 Battalion Headquarters building was designed as a high-performance, environmentally sensitive office facility that supported the campus goal: to promote and maintain the well-being, morale and speedy recovery of wounded and injured military personnel living at Camp Pendleton. As the anchor building to the Wounded Warrior campus, the P-1100 building acts as a focal point by utilizing a symmetrical façade supported by a monument that celebrates the achievements of the Wounded Warriors. In maintaining the concept of “user oriented” design, interior spaces in the P-1100 Battalion Headquarters building were designed with demountable partitions and systems furniture that maximized flexibility for future space reconfigurations while allowing natural daylight to penetrate deep into the space. To align with the high-performance nature of the Wounded Warrior Campus and maximize the building’s indoor environment, the design-build team looked beyond the LEED Checklist to deliver a building that exemplifies “best value” for the military. As a result, the P-1100 Battalion Headquarters building achieved LEED Platinum Certification in March of 2012, earning a total of 59 points, the most of any LEED Certified building on Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton.
