Abstract : The Naval Ocean Systems Center (NOSC), Hawaii Laboratory is located on the northwest side on the Mokapu Peninsula overlooking Kaneohe Bay on the island of Oahu. The Laboratory occupies approximately 24 acres as a tenant of the Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS), Kaneohe Bay. This Base Exterior Architecture Plan (BEA) addresses the 22 acre main complex northwest of the MCAS West Runway. The technical nature of the Hawaii Laboratory requires the employment of highly skilled and educated research scientists and engineers. An attractive and comfortable environment is necessary to continue to attract, motivate and retain personnel. This BEA is directed toward the development of a functional and visually cohesive environment. Its direct focus is toward improvement of those places that are highly visible to visitors and those places that can serve as gathering, eating and recreation areas for NOSC employees. The use of these design guidelines and the implementation of the priority projects will result in greater order in the built environment and simplify and coordinate development, operations and maintenance procedures. As the design guideline standards are implemented over time, they will have a positive and lasting impact on the quality of the environment at the NOSC Hawaii Lab.
