- Design Services
Helping warfighters transition back into the real world post combat is an important job. Helping design the facilities that will keep these soldiers and their families comfortable and safe is an honor. BRPH designed a two-story Battalion Headquarters/Company Operations Facility and a Soldier and Family Assistance Center (SFAC) as part of a Warrior in Transition Complex at Fort Belvoir, Virginia.
Warrior in Transition (WIT) facilities provide housing and support services for soldiers recuperating from injuries sustained during their service fighting overseas. These facilities provide the best accommodations possible in gratitude for their service and sacrifice. Assistance programs for the soldiers and their families are also provided at the complex.
The Soldier Family Assistance Center (SFAC) serves as a transitional facility, bridging the gap between family assistance and assisting the soldier in personal adjustments. This facility provides space for the various assistance programs and includes child care areas, meeting rooms, and a chaplain's office.
An added level of security was built in to this facility including antiterrorism measures, fiber and copper communication infrastructure, CCTV, and a wireless duress system interfacing with the base security office.
