Navy Mulls Redesign of D.C. Building Where 12 Killed

Posted: Updated:

The Navy is considering an extensive redesign of the Washington Navy Yard building where 12 workers were gunned down last month.
 
A contract for repairs to Navy Yard Building 197 directs the contractor to create "a different sense of place" to soften the impact on returning occupants.
 
The Navy says it hasn't decided whether Naval Sea Systems Command will still be headquartered in the five-story, red brick building damaged by the shootings on Sept. 16.
 
Bethesda, Md., consultant Rich Harwood helped Newtown, Conn., devise a proposal to demolish the elementary school were 26 people were killed in a shooting last December, and to build a new school nearby. 
 
He says the Navy's decision isn't about a building, but about whether people are ready to move from trauma and despair to healing and hope.  (AP)
