Challenger Learning Center Coldwater Survival Egress Training Facility | Kenai, AK
Having been deeply involved in the first phases of the Challenger Learning Center of Alaska’s design and development, Klauder & Company were delighted to provide concept design services for the development of a new Coldwater Survival Egress Training Facility, to adjoin the Learning Center’s existing building. During our design process we worked closely with consultants and equipment suppliers, in order to gain a greater understanding of the specialist equipment we would be designing the building around. We also conducted a series of in depth programming exercises, including completing the Cold Water Survival and Helicopter Escape Training with Emergency Breathing System course offered by the CSET program at CLCA, giving us firsthand experience with the equipment utilized in the training exercises. This extensive programming process helped us to better hear and feel the client’s challenges and visions for the project.
