A/Z Awarded Maritime Center Preconstruction Services
We are excited to share that the U.S. Coast Guard Alumni Association (CGAAA) has selected A/Z to support preconstruction services for the Maritime Center of Excellence (MCOE). The building will be an iconic addition to the U.S. Coast Guard Academy (USCGA) campus in New London, Connecticut. A/Z is exceptionally proud to further contribute to the legacy of the U.S. Coast Guard and the USCGA.
This new waterfront facility will be unique in both form and function. The dramatic, contemporary design by SmithGroup of Washington, D.C. is currently designed to achieve LEED Gold certification.
The MCOE serves USCGA cadets and faculty as well as visitors to the campus. The upper deck features a multipurpose welcome center, conference room, and offices as well as a large opening down into the lower deck boat maintenance shop. The lower level also houses everything needed to keep the USCGA fleet in peak operating condition— engineering and science labs, workshops (carpentry, paint/fiberglass, electronics, and engine), and parts storage.
