Ft. Buchanan Directorate of Public Works

Ft. Buchanan Directorate of Public Works

Working with limited bridging documents and a tight timeframe, the SMRT team designed and engineered three major buildings at this replacement complex for the Directorate of Public Works. The design-build project included an administration building, shops, a warehouse facility, and an entomology building, all of which are Department of Defense Anti-Terrorism Force Protection (ATFP) compliant. Multiple sustainability initiatives informed the design, including:

  • A tight building envelope
  • High-efficiency interior and exterior LED lighting
  • A 250-kilowatt photovoltaic array to harvest abundant sunlight
  • Underground rainwater storage for non-potable usage
  • LEED Gold certification and net zero energy
