Eilson Air Force Base Joint Security Forces Complex | Fairbanks, AK
Klauder & Company Architects provided comprehensive programming services for Eielson Air Force Base, Joint Security Forces Complex, a 40,000 square foot “police station” shared by the Air National Guard and Eielson Air Force Active Duty Security Forces. This programming effort was critical to the development of a complete Request for Proposal document for Design / Build Services to construct the project. Klauder & Company served as a sub consultant charged with the development of the Building Program and writing the Architectural sections of the Request for Proposal.
The process involved multiple conferences on site at Eielson Air Force Base with user group representatives and a full array of design discipline consultants for up to three consecutive days per conference. The programming effort was intense and would include design charettes and side bar mini-conferences to more fully investigate and develop specific needs.
Security, surveillance and communications for the overall facility and especially for the Battle Staff and Control Center, the “heart” of the building, were paramount design criteria.
