Orting V.A. Facility Traumatic Brain Injury Housing Study Campus Planning
Sage Architectural Alliance served as the lead architectural firm retained by the Washington State Department of Veteran Affairs (WSDVA) and University of Washington Northwest Center for Livable Communities (NWCLC) to study the technical feasibility of accommodating Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) veterans and Transitional Housing for homeless veterans on the Orting Campus.
Teaming with a planner and landscape architect, SAGE studied the history and site constrains of the 320 acre historic “Soldiers Home” Campus.
STATE-OF-THE-ART TBI REHABILITATION CENTER
Working closely with the WSDVA, SAGE researched TBI civil and military rehabilitation programs across the country and produced master plan alternatives that envisioned the campus as a “State-of-the-Art” TBI rehabilitation center.
SAGE determined that the site can accommodate a separate “Village” for TBI veterans and the needs of Transitional Housing within existing structures. The results of the study were documented in Powerpoint presentations to the client and a final 40 page report. SAGE also produced a large presentation board for display to the governor.
