U.S. Coast Guard Houston-Galveston Sector Building

Houston, Texas​

Challenge Design-Build Project delivery addressed:
The wide variety of functions and user groups housed in this building required an extensive amount of technical/operational coordination, for which design-build was the ideal delivery method.

The first phase involved the design and construction of a new four-story, 111,500-square-foot U. S. Coast Guard Sector building at Ellington Field in Houston, Texas, housing multiple Coast Guard Sector functions, including offices for logistics administration, command cadre, investigative units, intelligence analysts as well as an armory, training and conference areas, fitness and weight training facilities, locker rooms, and sleeping quarters. It also provides a dining facility with a full-service kitchen and serving area and a medical and dental clinic with examination and operating rooms, laboratories, x-ray, pharmacy, emergency room and administrative offices. The second phase involved the move of personnel from the existing buildings at Galena Park to the new Sector Building, followed by the transformation of the existing Galena Park site into a recreational area.
