Design and construction of a 210,000sf, eight-story housing facility providing 150 “market-style” apartments for 600 sailors and a 912-stall, ten-story, 300,000 SF parking structure.
The new facilities maintain aesthetic compatibility with the surrounding facilities which include historic districts and meet anti-terrorism standards. The structures are fully equipped with sprinklers and have a fire alarm and mass notification system that interfaces with existing systems on base.
The Navy had a goal to receive a LEED Silver rating, but our team exceeded credit requirements and the project has been submitted for LEED Gold certification. Each unit of the BEQ has a separate, individually controlled water-to-water heat pump.
Architectural upgrades in the units include solid-surface countertops and cellular shade window treatments. Additionally, each unit has a full size refrigerator with ice maker, fourburner cooktop unit, convection/microwave, double sink, two bedrooms, washer and dryer, four individual locked closets, desks, couches and dining table. Utility infrastructure included replacement of existing utilities and approximately 1 1/2 mile of electrical duct bank to provide power to the new buildings as well as upgrading the Base electrical system to provide dual primary feed to the last three transformers on the base. Additional work was required to extend the existing base steam lines approximately 500 LF to the BEQ.
