Yaeger Project Receives Award

Yaeger Project Receives Award

Building 102 at Fort Leavenworth received an Honor Award for Excellence in Rehabilitation at the Kansas Preservation Alliance Awards for Excellence on Friday, May 17th.  Each year, the Kansas Preservation Alliance, Inc. recognizes exemplary efforts in historic preservation across the state of Kansas.  The 2019 Awards for Excellence were presented at the Historic Fire Station No. 2 in Topeka. 

Built as workshops for the Leavenworth Arsenal c.1859, Building 102 served a utilitarian function for its first 40 years and is a contributing structure to the Fort Leavenworth National Landmark District.  Upon closure of the arsenal in 1874, Building 102 served as workshops – such as blacksmith and machine shops – and later storerooms for the Quartermaster Depot in the early 20th Century.  Reuse of this building focused on retention and preservation of those materials, features, finishes, spaces, and spatial relationships that portray the building in its first non-utilitarian use as an open barracks.   

Design included innovative office and administrative environments, conference rooms, break rooms, instructor work areas, restrooms, and storage.  The building was brought up to current building codes, Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection criteria and exceeded the requirements for LEED Silver certification while preserving its historic character.

Yaeger Architecture provided architectural services, interior design, and sustainable design.  Other members of the team included: TreanorHL, Professional Engineering Consultants, Poole Fire Protection, CMR, Merrick, Dudley Williams and Associates, Spencer Preservation, Fort Leavenworth DPW, USACE Kansas City District, and USACE Fort Leavenworth Resident Office.
