The two-story 1905 limestone building on Fort Riley's Main Post was originally built as a Guard House, but had been vacant for over 20 years.   The project was funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 with a goal to renovate the building and grounds as a Justice Center for the US Army's JAG Corps.

CP&A joined the successful design-build team as the historic preservation architectural consultant.  The scope of CP&A's services included attention to the following character-defining features:  1) exterior stone repairs; 2) exterior brick chimney repairs; 3) repointing damaged stone and brick mortar joints; 4) roof replacement; 5) repairs to copper gutters and downspouts; 6) repairs to double-hung wood windows; 7) repairs to iron security bars on the windows; 8) repairs to exterior wood doors; 9) repairs to the north exterior concrete porch and stairs; 10) repairs to exterior metal guardrails and stair railings; 11) repairs to large metal roof-mounted ventilators; 12) repairs to interior decorative tin ceiling areas; 13) modifications to interior historic guardrails and handrails.


Working closely with the joint-venture team, CP&A prepared drawings and specifications for the exterior and interior historic rehabilitation work.  CP&A participated in the USACE-required DrChecks review of both partial and final design documentation before being approved for construction.  This process included a close review and approval by Fort Riley's Historic Architect.
