USACE Fort Hood Building 420, Design/Build Conversion
Fort Hood, Texas
This design-build project renewed and expanded the Bennett Health Clinic and converted operations from serving a beneficiary population into those comprising a Soldier Centered Medical Home (SCMH) initiative. This project was a total renovation and expansion of approximately 2,500 sft. American Structurepoint, as a subconsultant, provided land surveying, civil engineering, and structural engineering services.
As part of the site design work, the proposed building addition required a new sidewalk on the north side of the building and a new sidewalk to connect to the building’s new entrance. American Structurepoint also conducted a structural investigation to gain an understanding of the condition and layout of the existing structural system. This condition assessment included review of the building’s foundation and primary and secondary framing systems. Information gathered during the investigation was used to design structural repairs, ATFP retrofits, and other structural retrofits. This project was designed toward LEED certification in pursuit of a Silver rating.
