Helping Ease the Transition
Building Family Comfort
Minot Air Force Base is home to two wings and the U.S. Air Force’s only base housing two components of the nuclear triad. It has a strong and proud history of providing global strike and nuclear deterrence capabilities for our nation dating back to the late 1950’s. Moving to a new duty station, whether it’s across the state or around the globe, is difficult for even the most seasoned military family. Families in transition at Minot will soon have a new and comfortable place to reside until their transition is complete.
This new 46,900 square foot temporary lodging facility includes 30 furnished two bedroom units, each just under 1,000 square feet, complete with living space, a dining area, two bedrooms, a kitchen, bathroom, and in-unit laundry facilities. Two units are fully accessible with modified kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry facilities; and 14 units are available for families with pets. Heating and cooling is provided by geothermal heat pumps supporting energy conservation. The new facility replaces several 44-year-old modular units that had rusted support beams, high maintenance costs, and frozen water pipes during cold weather.
This project is registered with the U.S. Green Building Council with a goal of achieving LEED® Silver certification.
