KZF Design, as part of a joint venture, provided programming, planning and concept site development to realign and relocate the U.S. Air Force School of Aerospace Medicine (USAFSAM), Air Force Research Laboratories (AFRL) and Navy Medical Research Laboratories (NAMRL) from 3 separate locations to Wright-Patterson AFB. This new $240M, 680,000 SF complex comprises the newly configured USAF 711th Human Performance Wing, with the goal of creating one cohesive organization that would allow for interaction and synergy between the disparate organizations. Building Site Plan Development included programming of space requirements for each organization and concept building and site development of for the new HPW Complex. The project included the development of a design/build RFP to upgrade and replace existing Base utility systems and roadways to support the planned 711th Wing building, and the development of the design/build RFP for the 711th Wing complex.

This project received the 2009 US Air Force Materiel Command – Honor Award, Design Concept; 2009 Department of Defense – Value Engineering Achievement Award; and 2010 US Air Force – Honor Award, Concept Design.
