Pipeline Student Dormitory

Goodfellow AFB, TX

SLA Architects, through CSG/SLA Joint Venture Company, designed a site adapt for a prototypical dormitory for the US Army Corp of Engineers. With a construction price of $19M, the 120,000sf facility provides accommodations for 400 pipeline students.

The three-story structure includes three bed wings joined by a central commons area housing administrative, utility, and recreational areas.  Consistent with the base master plan, outdoor recreational areas were incorporated to promote a campus-like environment with adjacent dormitories.  A covered 10,000 square feet troop muster pad connected an extension of a base-wide troop walk system.  Extensive design of the structural system was necessary to comply with current Antiterrorism / Force Protection (AT/FP) requirements, including progressive collapse avoidance.
