H. H. Bateman Visitor & Information Center: Chincoteague

  • Designed to have minimal disturbance to the landscape, the building was raised off the ground on pylons to allow animals to pass underneath. This new award winning 20,000sf visitor, education and administrative center was constructed for the US Fish & Wildlife Service in a wildlife refuge  in Chincoteague,  Virginia.   The design utilized state of the art sustainable materials and technologies including: geothermal heating and cooling; a super insulated building envelope; on-site waste water recycling; and pure zinc roofing. JHW was the co-designer and project architect for this building while at CUH2A.
