Yaeger Architecture, Inc. was commissioned for the building renovation design, along with the writing of the prescriptive Request For Proposal used for the construction award for Building 465. Built in 1930, this former prison hospital is part of the National Landmark Historic District. The building renovation now accommodates high-technology classrooms and administrative offices for the Civilian Education System (CES). In addition to the historic building renovation, a new parking lot and centralized outdoor parade ground were included in YAI's design.
"I think the degree of cooperation by the project team from the inception of the Building 465 project was exemplary, and almost unique in my experience. Clear and open communication among the team members, collaboration on developing a comprehensive Request for Proposal, and reliance on gaining consensus on design issues by the Corps of Engineers were key elements in the project's success."
