Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Warrior Transition Unit
Wounded service members receive support and rehabilitation at warrior transition units to help them successfully return to military or civilian status. With the closing of Walter Reed Medical Center, the U.S. government sought to relocate the warrior transition unit to the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. The relocated warrior transition unit includes a new enlisted bachelors’ quarters for recovering soldiers; re-use of an existing structure for new administrative office space; and a new addition with parking, a pool, and gymnasium facilities. SGH consulted on the building enclosure design and construction for both the existing and new buildings.
