This rehabilitation campus for wounded Marines was the first certified LEED Platinum project for the US Navy and US Marine Corps and includes a 100 room (200 bed, 66K SF) dormitory, BN Headquarters (9400 SF), dormitory multi-purpose space, Hope & Care Center (31K SF rehabilitation facility), and a 160-stall concrete parking structure.
The Marine Corps mission for the Campus was to provide housing and permanent administrative support for the Wounded Warrior Battalion-West (WWBN-W). The mission requires command and control facilities for assisting in the recovery of all wounded, ill, and injured Marines, Sailors, and their families. Because the facility is focused on wounded marines and rehabilitation, special attention has been paid to walkability, alternate transit, pedestrian connectivity, and aesthetic healing.
The most impressive aspect of this project was providing a 100% stormwater infiltration system which feeds all irrigation, water features, and landscaping with only a 2 month rainy season. Calibre’s stormwater system helped to win the LEED Platinum status.
The Wounded Warrior Campus was the second phase of a Battalion Campus at MCB Camp Pendleton which required Calibre to design infrastructure that connected to previously constructed infrastructure. The site plan solution resulted in a dense development requiring multiple connections including connecting to and rerouting a portion of domestic watermain, connecting to existing storm drain, verifying capacities of design flow and water treatment facilities, connecting to and verifying capacities of sanitary sewer, and integrating additional parking and vehicular circulation. The integration of the new infrastructure into the existing site resulted in the existing infrastructure being upgraded from LEED Gold to LEED Platinum.
Innovation/Sustainability: Calibre’s most impressive aspect of this project was a 100% stormwater infiltration system which feeds all irrigation, water features, and landscaping with only a 2 month rainy season. Calibre’s stormwater system helped to win the LEED Platinum status. Additional sustainable elements included infiltration pond, rainwater harvesting, vertical media storm drainage filter, sand and oil interceptor, flow spreader, rain gardens, bio-swales, recycled/reuse building materials, photovoltaics, solar heated pool, reclaimed water system, and low water usage appliances.
