3d rendering of the FY 14 Operations Center

Defense Logistics Agency Aviation Operations Center project

Project scope
The fiscal year 2014 Operations Center will provide Defense Logistics Agency Aviation with up-to-date operational and administrative space to support its mission. Currently, most mission functions are located in renovated 1942-era warehouse space. These warehouses are not energy-efficient and would require another major renovation to bring them into compliance with today’s energy standards. 

The operations center project features two stand-alone phases, which are designed to operate together. Each phase will be approved separately, with the chance follow-on projects may have a delay in approval. The projects are set up for construction in fiscal years 2014, 2017 and 2019, with design work starting in FY2012, 2015 and 2017. 

FY2014 Operations Center, Phase I
Phase I provides the design and construction of a 252,982-square-foot operations center, which includes the following areas:

  • Commanding general officer suite
  • Open and individual administrative office areas
  • Administrative-support areas (copier, printer, facsimile, shredder, mail distribution, packing, shipping)
  • Lobby exhibit and reception space
  • Information-processing center
  • Multiuse and distance-learning classrooms
  • Conference space
  • Emergency operations center with uninterruptible power supply
  • Employee-support areas (dining, cafeteria, retail space, kitchenette/break, latrine, shower and locker rooms)
  • Storage, equipment and supply rooms
  • Energy-management control system
  • Low-impact development
  • Demolition of existing buildings

FY14 Operations Center, Phase II consists of:

  • A second administrative building with areas described above
  • Small physical fitness facility
  • Demolition of an existing DLA building to support new building construction

Standard design for a small physical fitness facility includes fitness and exercise areas, a gymnasium, structured-activity area, locker rooms, control desk, administrative areas, laundry and storage. A three-lane indoor jogging track is also included in the design.
