Davis Barracks at United States Military Academy
STV, in joint venture, provided architectural and engineering design services for the bridging documents of a new barracks at the U.S. Military Academy. The 287,000-square-foot, six-story Davis Barracks houses five companies of cadets (a total of 650), with each company occupying a single contiguous floor. STV’s design for the barracks combines sensitivity to its context on a National Historic Landmark campus with extensive use of hand-set granite stone for the exterior facade and double-glazed insulated windows to enhance cadet living and study quarters.
The ground floor houses mechanical rooms and space for a future chiller plant to serve neighboring barracks. Floors two to six house cadet living quarters. The firm incorporated sustainable design features to meet the project’s goal of LEED® Silver certification and used Building Information Modeling (BIM) software to create the bid documents and renderings.
