The Army Cyber Command made plans to consolidate its operations into a new facility at Fort Gordon under one commander for the first time in its history. This decision to make the post the permanent home of the Cyber Command headquarters was hailed by federal officials as a cost-saving maneuver that would help the country better combat emerging Internet and computer-based threats to national security.
Wiley|Wilson took part in this historic consolidation by providing the civil, structural, plumbing, and lighting designs for the new 324,000 square foot ARCYBER Operational Wing to house the Army Cyber Command. The project contains two office wings, an operations center, a full service kitchen and cafeteria, AV-integrated conference rooms and a landscaped exterior courtyard. The project was designed in conjunction with Gensler (Architect) and Black & Veatch (Engineer).
Designed to achieve USGBC LEED Silver certification, the facility has numerous features designed to smartly use resources, such as high-efficiency lighting and water reduction systems like a plumbing system that reduces water usage by 40%.
