Wildman & Morris, acting as the Prime A/E, provided architectural, structural and civil services for this two- story 39,000sf design-build project.
Currently completing construction, the Navy requested a “modern industrial” type of storage structure for their Special Boat Teams operations. We responded with a steel structure which created large, clear interior spans. A CMU and insulated metal panel system harmoniously blend together in order to create both a visually unique and energy efficient exterior skin.
Also, the exterior design incorporated base BEAP standards. So in compliance with that document, a flat roof was designed in order to seamlessly blend the building in with the surrounding two-story built environment.
Seeking a minimum of LEED Silver, the project uses recycled CMU block. A translucent panel system allows both necessary privacy, and natural light to fill the interior spaces thus reducing lighting loads

Contingency Response Wing Warehouse
Travis AFB, CA
The Contingency Response Wing Warehouse located at Travis Air Force Base, California was designed by Wildman & Morris Architects and constructed by R. A. Burch Construction.
The facility provides a warehouse in support of the 615 Air Mobility Operations Group (AMOG). Air Mobility Command’s primary mission is rapid, global mobility and sustainment for America’s armed forces. The command also plays a crucial role in providing humanitarian support at home and around the world. The men and women of Air Mobility Command provide airlift and aerial refueling for all of America’s armed forces and aero medical evacuation missions.
This mammoth facility is a 96,000 square foot one-story plan. The central warehouse is a large open area with site access from two sides for drive-through convenience. The design incorporates both dock and at-grade access with direct circulation into the facility.
The interior spaces include open bay storage, administrative offices, Air Ground Equipment Shop, Armory Storage, area for staging, a Group supply office and access (both stairs and a conveyor system) to a second level mezzanine. The mezzanine provides space for Mobility Storage Bags in a modular shelving system.
This facility was designed with many enhancements to the RFP. The most prominent features are the large open bay, which has a clear span of 100 feet, and the clerestory with translucent panels. The 100 foot clear span enables free circulation for stocking, moving and loading equipment and gear at a moment’s notice. The translucent panels make day lighting possible which is essential to the warehouse operation during the day and also contributes to great energy savings by limiting artificial light usage.
