Gowen Field 700 Block Barracks
government | boise, idaho
The site is located on Gowen Field that is home to the Idaho Air National Guard and the 124th Fighter Wing and the Idaho National Guard 204th Regiment and is a Regional Training Institute. This project was part of a larger plan to remodel and repair structures on the base that needed interior and exterior work.
These buildings were built during WWII to support soldiers going through flight training, including the famed Jimmy Stewart, who stayed here when he earned his flight training. One of the four buildings is preserved as a historical building, the other three were renovated to extend their lives. Providing these buildings with a foundation and modern mechanical, plumbing, and electrical systems will provide soldiers comfort while serving the country with efficiency in mind. One of the buildings was re-designed to house officers while all three have an exterior design to weave into the campus tapestry with common elements. Analyzing housing requirements and other military necessities is a special service that BRS is proud to be a part of.
