Wildman & Morris, acting as the Prime A/E, provided both architectural and structural services for renovations to this historic Design/Build project. In tandem with the prior referenced project (1), this involves the interior renovations of Building 55 for the Littoral Combat Ship Squadron (LCSRON). 57,000sf of space will be phased in order to temporarily move the occupants into Bldg. 57 upon its completion.

Repair and Modernization To Littoral Combat Ship Squadron Building 57.

Naval Base San Diego, San Diego, CA

Wildman & Morris, acting as the Prime A/E, provided architectural services for this Design/Build project. Originally constructed in 1940, the project consists of the modernization of a historic 33,000sf, two-story structure that will provide headquarters for the Navy’s new state-of-the-art Littoral Combat Ship (LCSRON). The renovated areas will provide administrative and training support spaces. First floor support areas shall consist of spaces for three core crews and a SIPR conference room. The second floor also supports three core crews; a secure VTC SIPR conference room; break rooms, and four non-secured conference rooms. Because of the historic designation of this building, all exterior design modifications had to be reviewed and approved by the State of California Historic Preservation Office.

Renovation of Hangar B-340 Naval Air Station

North Island, Coronado, CA

The large barrel vaults of Hangar B-340 are a prominent view from the San Diego mainland waterfront. Great care was given to keep the character of this historical building intact, while providing the building code and program upgrades required on this project.

One of the main requirements of the renovation was the seismic upgrade of this concrete arch and roof shell structure. Built in the early Forties, the structure did not comply with current seismic design criteria. The upgrade was able to keep the historic appearance of the structure by improving the strength of the wall separating the maintenance bays from the administrative/shop spaces.

The existing hangar consists of two open barrel vaults, which form the maintenance bays, and adjacent two story “lean-to” areas housing the shops on the first floor and administrative spaces on the second floor. The facility contains EM Ready Room, shops including Aviation Ordinance with a strong room, and toilet/shower/locker facilities, administrative areas, flight planning/training areas, and toilet/shower/locker facilities.

The objectives of the LEED v2.0 rating system were implemented in our design and it was able to achieve a certified rating. Sustainable and recycled materials were utilized as much as possible, passive solar design characteristics have been implemented, and all LEED credit points have been addressed.
