The complex includes two barracks that accommodate 240 Soldiers. Each facility consists of two apartment-style floor plans. The first is a 1,350-square foot, two-bedroom, two-bath apartment with a shared kitchen, living room and laundry room. The second floor plan offers a 1,060-square-foot, two-bedroom, one-bath apartment with a shared kitchen. Ten percent of the rooms are Americans with Disabilities Act compliant, which means features such as countertops, bathrooms, cabinets and equipment will be easily accessible for a person in a wheel chair.
The complex also includes a WT Administrative for staff that manages the daily operations and activities of the recovering Soldiers.
The complex was designed to meet Silver-level criteria under the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design rating system. Sustainable features include the use of energy efficient building materials, lighting, and ventilation systems.
