Award: $18.2M U.S. Army Reserve Training Center, Dublin, CA
We’re Building to help train and equip our Reservists
We’ve just signed a contract with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Louisville District, to construct a new 43,000 square foot U.S. Army Reserve Training Center at the Parks Reserve Forces Training Area in Dublin, California. This new 300-member Army Reserve Center is a three-story, training facility with administrative, educational, assembly, library, learning center, maintenance shop, vault, weapons simulator, physical fitness areas, and unit storage for fifteen Army Reserve units.
The building has a unique split design with a massive concrete atrium wall that divides the building in half with a single story on the north side and three stories on the south side. The atrium wall is made of heat-trapping concrete to help heat the office area as well as drive the natural ventilation and cooling though buoyancy. The building’s design is an innovative combination of passive energy systems with radiant flooring, natural ventilation, walls and windows designed to facilitate natural ventilation, moisture resistance, and daylighting. The base is working toward a net zero future of zero net energy consumption and zero annual carbon emissions.
The project is registered with the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED® green building program with a goal of achieving LEED® Silver certification upon completion.
