Armed Forces Chaplaincy Center

As a result of BRAC 2005 recommendations, religious training and education functions and facilities throughout the U.S. Military will be consolidated at Ft. Jackson, SC. This new Armed Forces Chaplaincy Center (AFCC) will be co-located with the existing Army Chaplain Center and School at Fort Jackson. The AFCC consists of the Naval Chaplain’s School (NCS), the Air Force Chaplain Service Institute (AFCSI) and the Inter-Service Training Facility (ISTF). All these major components contain classrooms and office space; in addition, the ISTF contains a 300-seat auditorium.

The AFCC project is programmed to include 13,476 SF for the AFCSI, 17,936 SF for the NCS and 14,469 SF for the ISTF. The total square footage for the JCERTE facility is 45,881 SF.
  • As was determined through the work of Knight Architect’s and JV partner firm, Wakefield Beasley & Assoc., the Architectural criteria by which the final design was judged by the stakeholders was:
  • The degree to which the design recognizes the individual identity of the co-located schools
  • The degree to which the design recognizes the separate identity of the Inter Service Training Facility
  • The physical connection between the Army, Air Force, Navy and Inter Service Training Facilities
Knight Architects and their consultants, working with the U.S. Army Corps, Savannah District, and the project stakeholders, completed an on-site design charrette and proceeded to complete the 100% RFP document. The team assisted in evaluating the technical proposals the Corps received, and are currently assisting the Corps with the construction administration of the project.
