Condition Assessments at Naval Station Great Lakes

Condition Assessments at Naval Station Great Lakes
The Condition Assessments at Naval Station Great Lakes project was commissioned by the Naval Facilities Engineering Command to prepare a Case Alternatives Report to explore the potential reuse of two identical barracks constructed 1906-1909. These buildings were originally known as Dormitories A and D and consisted of 36,458 s.f. on three floors. The report explored the feasibility of relocating various tenants into the buildings, including reuse as the Base Museum, Base Library, or Administrative Offices as well as retention as dormitories. Other options included demolition and mothballing.  For each option, HDC assessed the condition of the building, discussed the work required for each option, and prepared cost estimates. The report also included explanation of Navy funding sources, legal responsibilities, and integration with the Base Master Plan.
