With Dammon Engineering, Broadmoor provided the architectural and engineering services for the design-build project of the Riverine and Combatant Craft Operations Facility on the Stennis Space Center campus in Mississippi. To serve Special Boat Team (SBT) 22, the only command in the Department of Defense specifically designated to conduct special operations in riverine environments. The new $10.7 million Riverine Operations Facility consists of two structures. The 15,898 square foot Riverine Operations/Administration building and 24,779 square foot Combatant Craft building provide permanent riverine operations space and directly contribute to upgrading the training capability and mission readiness of SBT-22.
The new facility has state-of-the-art storage for tactical gear, offices, planning areas, classrooms, and other personnel support areas to meet increasing training requirements. Both of these buildings are designed to be extremely energy and water-efficient, keeping in line with Department of Defense guidelines for environmental stewardship.
The Riverine Operations Facility is one of nine modern buildings rated to withstand a Category 5 hurricane in the Naval Special Warfare (NSW) Stennis compound.
The increase in training and growth of the NSW presence on SSC is directly related to the location and increase in demand for a riverine skill set. SSC has access via the Pearl River to the Gulf of Mexico, Lake Pontchartrain and most importantly the Western Maneuver Area, which allows for live-fire training.
