CA ARNG Joint Division HQ & Joint Forces Training Base, Los Alamitos, CACA ARNG Joint Division HQ & Joint Forces Training Base, Los Alamitos, CA. Jacobs provided planning and 35% design services for the 259,988 GSF Joint Division Headquarters, a unique project that brings together three distinct military entities under one roof: the CA ARNG 40th Infantry Division Command; the US Army Reserve (USAR) 63rd Regional Support Command; and the Post Detachment Three-State Area Command. The headquarters encompasses a 4-story Main Command Building; an Assembly Hall; a Physical Training Pavilion; and a Service/Support Building. The project was designed for Silver LEED certification. Force Protection measures were designed into the facility in accordance with the DoD Anti-Terrorist/Force Protection Manual.

Florida Army National Guard Regional Training Institute (RTI) at Camp Blanding, FL Jacobs provided Project Planning Document Charrette (PPDC) services, as well as follow-on A-E design services for the new construction of the 282,925 SF facility. The RTI will be a modern educational facility, which will provide classrooms, housing, and dining facilities for up to 408 authorized students and 96 authorized personnel.

Construction Management, U.S. Marine Corps Heritage Foundation

U.S. Marine Corps Museum, Quantico, VA Jacobs is providing project/construction management services during design and construction of this significant project for the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation. The project is currently 85% complete.

U.S. Marine Corps Museum, Quantico, VALocated in a woodland area off Interstate 95 (I-95), just south of Washington, DC, the museum is a dramatic, 230,000-SF facility that will include multimedia exhibit galleries; a large-screen, state-of-the-art theater; and classroom, restaurant, gift shop, and office spaces. An asymmetrical, cone-shaped, monumental skylight starting 45 feet above the finished floor and extending to a point 150 feet above the 18,000-square-foot central gallery is a focal point.

The museum not only provides the Corps with the opportunity to consolidate its 60,000-plus artifacts, documents, and other memorabilia, it will help the public understand the role of the Marines throughout history and in the world today. Through interactive, immersive exhibits, visitors will experience some of the most important and dramatic chapters of Marine Corps history.

Green architecture is a forefront element of this project, including earth berms reducing thermal load variations; a green roof system over exhibit galleries; a water-use-reducing irrigation system and plumbing fixtures; a water side economizer during cold weather that uses a cooling tower without chillers; a rotary enthalpy heat exchanger to precondition outside air by transferring energy from the exhaust air stream to the entering air stream; and daylit atrium, offices, and cafeteria.

A-E Services, Federal Aviation Agency

Jacobs has provided on-going services to FAA for 15 years, including renovations, expansions, and new facilities for some of the nation's most critical infrastructure. They perform A/E Design and Design/Build services for terminal radar approach control facilities (TRACONs), air route traffic control center (ARTCCs), air traffic control towers (ATCTs), and other FAA-owned facilities. Projects often involve facilities that must remain operational 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport Air Traffic Control Tower (ATCT) & Terminal Radar Control (TRACON). Jacobs is providing design-build services for the new 320-ft. tower will provide air traffic controllers with unobstructed views of the entire airfield, and permit visual and electronic monitoring of takeoffs, landings, and ground movement of aircraft. The design of the 850 SF cab allows for three feet of space between the rear of the controller consoles and the tower's exterior walls, which will allow maintenance and repair access to equipment without disturbance to air traffic operations. The new 50,000 SF TRACON will enhance controllers' ability to monitor and control aircraft as they approach or depart the airport area. The TRACON features FAA's new Standard Terminal Automation Replacement System

Air Traffic Control Tower Dulles International Airport Jacobs provided A/E design services for a new 300 ft. air traffic control tower (ATCT) and 16,000 SF base building at Washington Dulles International Airport. The facility has been designed to meet the needs for future runways and extensions, security and sound control requirements and for connection to the future midfield terminal.

The tower is a design unique to the airport. It comprises a concrete shaft with precast at the junction levels. The junction levels contain break rooms, offices, and mechanical/electrical rooms. The tower meets design criteria for having two exit stairs that extend from ground exits to the floor below the tower cab.
