UNM Construction Manager at Risk – ROTC Center
Jaynes served as the Construction Manager at-Risk for the UNM Central Campus ROTC Center project and provided preconstruction and construction management services for the redevelopment and renovation of the existing facility. The previous existing space, which was the former Alpha Chi Omega Sorority House on UNM’s Main Campus, is 18,732 gross square feet. The building is now redeveloped and occupied by all three branches of the UNM Reserve Officer Training Corps, which were formerly housed in separate, aged buildings. UNM is the only university in New Mexico to host all three ROTC programs including Navy, Army, and Air Force.
This facility encourages inclusivity and provides appropriate team-building training and study areas. With all three programs consolidated into a central location, students now have easy access to facilities vital to each program’s core instructional/training cohort requirements. While fostering a team environment, each Branch has its own needs and maintains its own identity. The new facility differentiates space for the Army, Navy/Marines and Air Force offices. Within the redeveloped ROTC Center, students have appropriate access to Wi-Fi and upgraded technology to meet modern standards. ROTC students require classrooms, computer labs, student group study areas, situation rooms, student lockers and shower rooms, exercise gym and training equipment rooms. In addition, the new space provides offices for each of the three ROTC units, office areas, conference rooms, library/resource rooms and large shared event spaces with catering and break room facilities. The facility was designed to meet the Department of Defense (DOD) security and safety facilities requirements for ROTC installations which included perimeter and access controls and was built to obtain a LEED Silver v.4 certification.
