About Washington J.A.G.
The Judge Advocate General is the legal branch of the United States armed services. They provide legal council and a court system for military personnel. The Judge Advocate General has a long and illustrious history of service and dedication to the nation. This J.A.G. office is located near Seattle, Washington and serves the Washington State National Guard.
The previous Judge Advocate General (JAG) building at the post was built hurriedly in 1982 and was of poor construction quality from the start. Over the years, it became apparent that it was more cost-effective to replace the deteriorated old building with a modern structure. This specific JAG office is located near Seattle, Washington and serves the Washington State National Guard. The client was also interested in establishing a new and unique design aesthetic for the building. This "look" would serve as a template for future development at the base.
Needing a building that could be completed quickly and with minimal disruption to the daily operations and security of the base, JAG turned to Whitley-Evergreen (Marysville, Washington) to construct the new office. The 1,800 square foot building incorporated an exterior of brick wainscotting with a stucco-esque wall system surrounding large, anchored windows. A hip roof structure is offset by a traditional and elegant tiled roof covering. A host of modern telecommunications and security systems were installed to provide for the client's long-term needs.
