To support its growing Homeland Security training mission at Camp Edwards, the Army National Guard (ARNG) needed to renovate its 1960s-era bachelor and family housing. Kleinfelder provided EO 13514-compliant sustainable designs and construction administration for the renovation of 19 existing multi-unit quarters.
Funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), the project required an expedited design schedule to award a construction contract prior to the fiscal year’s close. The project’s design services needed to meet strict ARRA requirements while complying with sustainability goals. Close coordination with both the end-users at Camp Edwards and ARNG Command personnel was necessary to complete the studies, design, and contract bid documents within two months of the Notice to Proceed.
Incorporating more than 15 years of ARNG institutional knowledge and 50 years of sustainable design experience, Kleinfelder completed the designs on time, enabling award of the renovation construction contracts prior to the fiscal year end. Kleinfelder’s final design reduced heating requirements 12%, potable water usage by 15%, and lifecycle energy costs by more than $200,000.
Kleinfelder enabled the ARNG to move forward with 19 ARRA-funded construction projects that met EO 13514 requirements. A focused effort, combined with close coordination with our client, resulted in on-time completion of these facilities, providing our Citizen Soldiers with quality, comfortable, and sustainable living quarters for their training missions.
