Developing the next generation. The U.S. Navy needed a new daycare facility for its staff working at Naval Air Station Whidbey Island. Reid Middleton provided structural engineering, civil engineering, traffic engineering, and topographic surveying services for the design and construction of a new 30,200 SF Child Development Center (CDC). The facility has the capacity to support 218 children ranging from infants (age 6 weeks-12 months) to pre-school (age 3-5 years). The facility also supports a total of 50 staff members and 30 parents or visitors.

The LEED Gold building includes solar panels and wind-generating turbines. Performed under design-build procurement, the facility and project site meet applicable Unified Facility Criteria (UFC) standards including provisions for antiterrorism force protection (ATFP). The building’s structural system consists of wood construction with the overall character of the building styled to resemble a contemporary large Northwest Craftsman residence.
