Jack C. Taylor Conference Center
US Naval Institute (USNI): Annapolis, MD
JPA provided MEP design, construction phase services, and retro-Cx for this renovation and addition to the US Naval Institute’s (USNI) Headquarters on the campus of the US Naval Academy (USNA), renamed the Jack C. Taylor Conference Center. The Center provides a platform for events which are intended to stimulate innovative thinking about the complex issues facing our nation. The Sea Services (Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard) will use this facility for professional development and educational activities. The Conference Center will provide new opportunities to promote diversity of thought and engagement and will be the place for face-to-face conversations that will fuel intellectual debate within the Sea Services. Funded entirely with private donations, the conference center is a unique, high-tech venue, featuring a 406-seat auditorium, reception spaces, indoor/outdoor rooftop terrace, five unique meeting rooms, and a broadcast studio. Other program features incorporate sustainable (LEED) design, and meets DoD force protection standards.
