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.
