Fort Campbell Warrior in Transition Complex

Helping Soldiers Focus on the Healing Process
The Warrior Transition Complex incorporates the barracks, which is 103 rooms, with a battalion headquarters and a company headquarters. It has greatly increased our footprint, because (the injured) were spread out at different places throughout the Fort Campbell area. Now, we are slowly but surely consolidating, which makes life a lot easier for us, with soldiers being right across from the hospital.

The four-story, 154,240 square-foot warrior in transition complex at Fort Campbell allows soliders who have been released from a medical care facility to live, eat, train and work together in a cohesive unit environment. A design-build project, the 103-room facility meets Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. 

The project included the construction of standard design warrior in transition barracks. Clark connected the new barracks to the base's energy monitoring and controls systems, and fire alarm detection system, and installed reporting and mass notification systems, and antiterrorism and force protection features (including security and access control). Site work for the entire complex included paving, walkways, curbs and gutters, parking, access roads, storm drainage, and landscaping and site improvements.

Sustainability

The Warrior in Transition Barracks were designed and constructed to receive LEED Silver validation by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Louisville District and includes Comprehensive Interior Design. A healing garden with wheelchair obstacle course improves the recovering soldier's experience, while rain gardens mitigate storm water discharge.
