Ft. Buchanan Directorate of Public Works Case Study
Working with limited bridging documents and a tight timeframe, the SMRT team designed and engineered three major buildings at this replacement DPW complex. The design-build project included an administration building, shops and warehouse facility, and an entomology building – all Department of Defense Anti-Terrorism Force Protection (ATFP) compliant. Multiple sustainability initiatives inform the design: a tight building envelope, high-efficiency interior and exterior LED lighting, a 250 kw photovoltaic array to harvest abundant sunlight and underground rainwater storage for non-potable usage. LEED Gold certification and net zero energy.
