South Riva Ridge Child Development Center

QPK Design was Design Architect and Architect of Record for a new 15,807 SF Child Development Center that accommodates 126 children from 6 weeks to 5 years of age. The building program also included a 16,670 SF outdoor activity area with playground equipment, video surveillance systems, and building information systems. 

 

The building and site design met Antiterrorism/Force Protection Standard UFC 04-010-01. Force protection measures included appropriate standoff distances, blast resistant openings, mass notification system and perimeter barriers.

 

The project achieved USGBC LEED® Gold Certification, and was the first of three facilities (all designed by QPK) to achieve that environmental milestone at Fort Drum. Sustainable Design and Development (SDD) and Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct05) features included geothermal heating and cooling system, energy monitoring and control system, high thermal retention, cool roof, low-emitting materials, daylight and views, reduced water use, 40% energy use reduction, and storm water quality control.
