New facility offers a home away from home for sailors while ashore
The $67-million LEED-Gold certified John William Finn Hall–a nearly 200,000-sf residence consisting of 264 modules to house more than a thousand sailors–is now ready for move-in. Located on California’s Naval Base Coronado, the project is part of the Navy’s Homeport Ashore initiative designed to improve the quality of life for young, single sailors by giving them a place to live ashore while their ships are in port. The facility also includes a community center, multipurpose rooms, and recreation areas, and was funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The Building Team: San Diego architecture firms RJC Architects and Joseph Wong Design Associates, along with Hensel Phelps Construction Co.
