Challenge

The Squadron Ops Facility (Montana Air National Guard) was designed to make the F-15 flight crew’s travel routine internally efficient as possible.

The three main areas, Operations, Intelligence/Vault and Life Support were in close proximity to each other to support this efficiency and required adherence to restricted security guidelines. The Ops Desk was the central point in the building designed with a 180 degree view of the flight line and anchored the remaining program about its location. The use of natural light and sustainability strategies were an important design requirement, as well as locating the offices of higher ranked officers to have views of the flight line.

The building integrated with the existing MANG complex through the use of earth-toned masonry and maintenance-free colors. Lastly, the design reflected, architecturally, the importance of this facility and its internal mission on the base.
