Soldier Family Assistance Center
Fort Carson, Colorado

The Soldier Family Assistance Center (SFAC) is a Design-Build project at Fort Carson achieved LEED Gold Certification. The facility serves as a community center for the Warrior in Transition program. The Soldier Family Assistance Center provides a "home away from home" for soldiers and their families. The main purpose behind the SFAC is to help the soldier transition into the community. The building is designed to accommodate this mission by providing an hourly child care area to include a playground, a computer lab, and training areas where various classes such as career counseling can be held. Equally important in the building are areas that support social opportunities such as the tranquil outdoor patio which features a gas fire pit under a canopied area. The materials are earth tone hues which adds to the facilities calming and healing nature. The open lobby area features a stone fireplace offering a warm welcome to soldiers and their families. The design takes advantage of the therapeutic vistas by strategic placement of glass throughout the building which also provides the beneficial element of natural day lighting.

The total square footage of the building is 14,500 square feet. Work on this project includes: design; surveying; site work; site utilities; site concrete; construction of the building; interior finishes; landscaping; storm water drainage; mechanical; plumbing; electrical; and communications. Geothermal wells are utilized for energy efficient heating and cooling of the building. The building meets anti-terrorism and force protection requirements.
