The government of Kazakhstan invited Leo A Daly to provide architectural design, interior design, and structural and MEP engineering design services through schematic design and design development for the new military academy located on the outskirts of the capital city of Astana. The building comprises approximately 100,000 SM (1.76M SF) of new classroom, administrative, housing, athletic, and service facilities for the Ministry of Defense, Republic of Kazakhstan.
The interconnection of buildings helps foster communication and teamwork within the military/educational campus. Ultimately, each individual element included in the project is significant in helping the university function as a whole. Education, living, business, entertainment, recreation, and hospitality unite on one site, under one roof, for one unified purpose.
