The Navy CDC project is a new 21,000-SF Child Development Center for the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.

This design/build project was designed to meet LEED-NC Silver criteria, as well as all applicable Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) requirements and Unified Facilities Codes (UFC’s).

In addition, Navy CDC was on the forefront of the Maryland Department of Environment’s (MDE) new Environmental Site Design (ESD) regulations and guidelines. To meet all the new criteria for stormwater management, our Team worked closely with the Developer, the Navy, and MDE staff throughout the entire design and construction process to ensure that stormwater management was functional as well as an integral part of the site.

The project included geo-thermal heating and cooling, which required additional coordination between VIKA and other sub-consultants to facilitate the geo-thermal borings under the parking facility. Because of the site’s location within 1000 feet of the Chesapeake Bay, the project was also processed through the Maryland DNR Critical Area Commission.

VIKA provided comprehensive surveying and engineering services including:

  • Site, Topographic, and Utility Survey
  • Concept design
  • Design development
  • Plan approval and permit processing
  • Pre-final construction document submittal
  • Construction administration
  • Sediment control plan
  • Construction stakeout
  • Stormwater Management as-built and certification.
