Civil Engineering and Logistics Readiness Squadron Complexes
As part of a joint venture, Pond crafted a design-build RFP for Tyndall AFB's industrial zone, featuring a new civil engineering, contracting, and USACE complex, and a Logistics Readiness Squadron Complex. Termed the "Installation of the Future", the project aimed to surpass facility replacement by addressing future Air Force needs and enhancing national security priorities. Emphasizing community partnerships, the design incorporated advanced technology, energy efficiency, force protection, coastal resiliency, and public-private collaborations. Amid the early COVID-19 pandemic, Pond facilitated virtual planning charrettes to revalidate requirements. Our team delivered an innovative, resilient, and sustainable design on schedule, earning accolades from stakeholders. CE Complex: Our team designed 10 facilities, totaling 176,000 square feet and consolidating operations for the 325th Fighter Wing. The two-story HQ facility enhances collaboration, while the Explosive Ordnance Disposal facility, vehicle maintenance shop, and Wildland Firefighting Building met specific operational needs. LRS Complex: Covering 177,000 square feet of facilities and 240,000 square feet of pavements, the LRS Complex features a single-story HQ facility and a supply warehouse, ensuring operational efficiency. Noteworthy elements include a three-bay vehicle wash rack, hazardous storage facility, and equipment shed, aligning with security requirements. Design for both complexes included civil/site improvements, utilities, structural engineering, fire protection, HVAC, and electrical systems. Our team employed sustainable design principles throughout the design process following the USAF sustainability checklist to reduce environmental impacts and improve energy efficiency while conserving water resources. All facility designs complied with UFC 1-200-02 High Performance and Sustainable Building Requirements and UFC 3-210-10 Low Impact Development. Our design minimizes non-renewable energy consumption, conserves resources, minimizes adverse effects on the environment, and improves occupant productivity, health, and comfort while reducing the total cost of ownership. As the Air Force requires all new projects to register with Green Building Initiative for DoD-specific Guiding Principles Compliance certification, regardless of funding source, this project was registered and received third-party certification for sustainability compliance.
