- Joint Dining Facility
Burns & McDonnell provided comprehensive design and Type C services for a new 23,000-square-foot joint dining facility.
Sustainable design features will conserve energy, improve the workplace environment and provide low-cost maintenance and operation. Site designs conform to best management practices, and site disturbance has been limited to the immediate project site. Drainage has been designed to maintain the rate and quantity of stormwater runoff from the previous conditions.
This facility will serve both as a dining hall for the joint forces on the base and as an assembly hall for wing functions and formal gatherings. Functional areas include a spacious and open dinning and assembly area, food receiving, storage, preparation and serving open dinning and assembly area, food receiving, storage, preparation and serving areas, administrative areas and space to maintain readiness of service personnel.
The architecture was coordinated with SHIPO for the State of Michigan and reflects the Federal Style of the base and surrounding area while maintaining the viability of the Selfridge Vision 2010 Master Plan. Exterior materials include a red brick façade with precast trim and Doric columns. Large arched windows reflect the historic fire station just south of the site and roof pediments and exterior architectural elements mimic those of the Base Operations building and nearby officer housing. Sited at the north boundary of a future plaza and parade ground, this facility will be a focal point of the base.
Meeting the challenges of the site, the steel-framed building will be constructed on a pile-and-cap foundation. The underlying foundation for the slab was undercut and filled with structural geofoam materials to prevent extreme settlement and facilitate the construction schedule.
