NAS Officers Club Renovation/ Restoration Naval Air Station, Pensacola

HCDI designed a fast-track, Design-Build of the historic 35,000 sf Officers Club. HCDI, working closely with KBR, carved out rich spaces that had been lost to insensitive renovations throughout the last thirty years. HCDI utilized layers of space and design changes in the ceiling planes to create a historically accurate, enriching space with all modern amenities and complying with current codes. HCDI provided interior design / restoration services, completed construction administration reviews and designed, procured and managed the installation of all the furniture and interior accessories. The renovation included the vestibule, lobby, restrooms,bar/ dining/ billiard rooms, ballroom, two dining rooms, kitchen, catering private offices/ open office and the officers' flag room.


Temporary Lodging Facility
MacDill AFB, Florida

The overall programming objective for the Temporary Lodging Facility was to accommodate a 50-unit complex for families (25 single units, 23 double units and 2 handicap accessible units), as well as, a supporting service building (totaling 48,000 SF) on a pedestrian friendly site. The complex was planned into a village concept to enhance the sense of community. The design seamlessly integrates the regional vernacular and the historic buildings on base with the current Air Force standards, thus setting the standard for future development on the base and creating the prototype for this building type used in the USAF Design Guide.

Awards: US Air Force Mobility Command 2001 Design Award in Conceptual Category and 2004 Design Award in the Facility Category.


Weapons Controller Training School
Tyndall AFB, Florida

The design of a new 38,000 SF educational facility for training Air Force air traffic controllers consisted of four areas: Command, Operations, Training and Public Areas. The project was designed with state-of-the-art audio/visual equipment, registrar offices, multiple classrooms (many with special acoustic requirements for confidential “SECRET” level discussions) and a 250 seat lecture hall. The facility is an efficient training school, in addition to a quality, aesthetically pleasing hub of activity for Tyndall AFB.

AWARD: 2004 AETC Design Award for Facility Design.


Navarre Visitors Information Center
Navarre, Florida

HCDI acted as a Design Consultant/ Advisor to Santa Rosa County to develop a new image for the community and a design guide for the new Navarre Town Center Plan. Ms. Hernandez lectured and listened to the Navarre community and helped the community, itself, realize their dreams of a new vision for Navarre. Concurrently, HCDI was designing the Navarre Visitors Information Center, which became the cornerstone of this new vision. The community is proud and feel their voices were heard on this new 5,000 sf state-of-the -art facility with public gallery space, conference areas and administrative offices perched on the edge of the Sound taking full advantage of the unbelievable views and outside spaces created by HCDI. This budget-concious $1.1 million facility reflects the soul of the community and has been described as a symbol of hope for the future.
