Aubertine and Currier Architects, Engineers and Land Surveyors, PLLC performed the Land Surveying and Civil/Site design services for the Soldier Specialty Care Clinic (SSCC) Project at Fort Drum. Design-Build services for the project were provided to the prime contractor Structural Associates, Inc. Design Team Consultants included; Architect – QPK Design, Structural – Klepper, Hahn & Hyatt, and MEP & Fire Protection – M/E Engineering. There was continued coordination with the USACE, Design Build Contractor and all disciplines during design. Total project cost was estimated at $11,163,100. The Soldier Specialty Care Clinic (SSCC) building is located on the Fort Drum Military Installation on Mount Belevedere Boulevard, and was designed with a connection to the existing Guthrie Medical Clinic, and relocation and expansion of site parking and utility infrastructure on the Guthrie campus. The project was designed to achieve a LEED silver rating.
The project work includes construction of a new +/-24,000 sf SSCC building to be located adjacent to the Guthrie Medical Clinic. The placement of the SSCC building to the southeast of the Guthrie Medical Clinic requires the relocation of existing parking lots, access roads and utilities. Site construction includes the demolition and redevelopment of site amenities, tree clearing, erosion and sediment control, topsoil removal, grading and earthwork on a +/-11 acre project site associated with building, 224 space 84,000 sf POV parking lot construction, 121 space 52,000 sf parking lot reconstruction, relocation and connections to existing utilities, service/ambulance drive and walk connections to the building, Healing Garden, sidewalks and pedestrian access, landscaping, and stormwater management. Design included an area along the east wall of the SSCC facility for a possible 10% future building expansion, and site infrastructure was designed for a 50-year industry accepted maintenance and repair cycle. Parking, access roadway and service drive pavements were designed for a life expectancy of 25 years with normal maintenance.
Utility design included the relocation and replacement of water, electric, communication and gas service to the building. Sanitary sewer design included the relocation and reconstruction of 1,750’ of 12” sewer main to the Guthrie site, and 1,150’ of 12” sewer main on-site. This included NYS DOH and DEC permitting.
