Located in the picturesque Resurrection Bay community of Seward, this 320-inmate facility had to be designed in a way that addressed three major issues.

First, it needed to be a good neighbor — a structure that would not overwhelm the community. Second, it needed to respond to its magnificent natural setting. Third, it needed to clearly express a high level of security to inmates and neighbors alike.

Our design strategy sought to meet these needs by breaking the facility up into individual elements, evoking a college campus or summer camp. The design utilized sloped roofs, playful forms and bright colors while making security elements highly visible, providing local residents with peace of mind.

Built on a mountainside a little less than seven miles outside the town of Skagway, the border station complex consisted of three buildings: the main offices, secondary inspection garage, and a storage building.

The remote site required removal of more than 3,000 cubic yards of solid rock to create a pad for the facility. The exterior design reflects the surrounding natural beauty. The walls were clad in the granite that was blasted out of the mountainside to make room for the structure.

White metal siding, aqua trim and blue-green glass covered the buildings, evoking mountain snows, glacial ice and the lush Southeast forests.

As part of its commitment to providing quality facilities for its airmen and women, the U.S. Air Force contracted MCG to build a new fitness center at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson to integrate new physical training areas and connect to the existing fitness center complex.

The new facility creates a contemporary “fitness club” environment that improves morale while providing Air Force personnel with the resources they need to stay combat-ready.

The fitness center’s design was inspired by the flight line. Entry and lobby roof forms reflected the angles of flight, while the entry canopy reaches out to bring patrons “under its wing” and into the building.
