Partnering with Brasfield&Gorrie Contractors, and working for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers–Savannah District, the architects of Elevatus Architecture created a new elementary school for the military families of Fort Bragg.
This dynamic and flexible education environment, currently slated for completion in 2017, will be one of the first new 21st century schools for the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA)
This state-of-the-art facility incorporates the newest technology and latest trends in Justice design.
A maximum-security facility, this is the first federal prison to incorporate a four-story special housing/special confinement unit to hold disciplinary, death row, and administrative segregation inmates.
The initial phase of the Miami Correctional Facility called for housing for 1,200 medium-security offenders with 200 minimum-security offenders and allowance for 400 additional beds in the future. In Phase II of the project, additional buildings were constructed on the remaining 70 acres of the 200-acre site.
The design team at Elevatus architecture developed an original and staff-efficient design concept for this jail, which is equipped with the latest technology in video/audio visitation.
Included in this project was the relocation of the state certified and recognized Fire and Police Academies, the newly formed Fort Wayne Area Public Safety Foundation, and training programs for other frontline emergency services as well as anti-terrorism and business personnel.
It was important to the commissioners that the design of the facility relate to the rich architectural detail of downtown Richmond. Throughout the design process, the team at Elevatus met with county commissioners, city council members, and several other interest groups to identify a design that was acceptable to all stakeholders.
The City of Fort Wayne and Allen County Government required additional space to accommodate the growing needs of their various departments. Significant renovations upgraded the existing government building, transforming it into a state-of-the-art office complex that encompasses public spaces, collaborative zones, and secure areas.
This was a project that had SchenkelShultz, now Elevatus Architecture, working with Design-Builder, The Hagerman Group. An FBO facility, it replaces what was a 40-year-old landlocked structure that had become an impediment to the future growth of the Fort Wayne International Commercial Terminal.
To design this facility, one of the first terminals to be constructed after 9/11, the Fort Wayne architects of SchenkelShultz, now Elevatus Architecture, worked as part of AeroDesign Group, a multi-firm joint venture, and served in collaboration with HOK, the Design Architect
The distinctive “wing” roof that seems to float over this building not only gives it an iconic identity but also allows natural lighting to flood through the clerestory glass and provides covered drop-off for land-side arrivals.
