New Construction, Renovation
The original CDC at Marine Core Base Hawaii (MCBH) was not large enough to serve the community, so MASON participated in a design-build project for a second CDC to work in conjunction with the first. The new building can accommodate up to 122 children ages six weeks to five years. Attention to sustainability in structural, mechanical, and electrical systems helped the CDC achieve LEED Silver certification. Also at MCBH, MASON designed a youth center to support the program’s operations. The resulting facility uses playful ambiance and thoughtful practicality to improve the quality of life for youth and families at MCBH.
MASON’s design for a new CDC at Joint Base Pearl Harbor Hickam ties closely with an existing building so that the two operate as a single complex. The new facility accommodates up to 122 children ages six weeks to five years and achieved LEED Silver certification.
MASON designed two CDCs at Schofield Barracks–one for children six weeks to five years, and the other for children ages six to 10. Both facilities feature a natural transition between indoor and outdoor spaces, child-friendly designs and materials, and state-of-the-art safety equipment. The youth CDC received National After-School Alliance accreditation, complies with the Energy Policy Act of 2005 and received LEED Gold certification.
