Following the devastation from Hurricane Michael in Fall of 2018, the Air Force ordered the 43d Formal Training Unit to relocate their F-22 training operations from Tyndall Air Force Base (TAFB) to Joint Base Langley-Eustis (JBLE). This included relocating hundreds of personnel and their primary assigned aircraft from Florida to Hampton, Virginia, generating a critical need for new facilities. Following a highly collaborative planning and programming and design workshop, the planning team developed Customer Concept Documents (CCDs) for seven facilities, including Unaccompanied Personnel Housing (UPH). The UPH building is 50,000 SF and provides dorm rooms for 120 incoming personnel.
The CCD includes an Air Force Sustainability Scoresheet, Low-Impact Development Planning Tool, Energy Model, and a set of Energy Efficiency Measures outlining opportunities to optimize and become more energy efficient. The CCD also demonstrates how the building can 1) meet UFC 1-200-02 High Performance and Sustainable Building Requirements that call for a 30% reduction in energy use from the ASHRAE 189.1 standard; 2) meet EISA stormwater runoff requirements, and 3) meet Air Force standards for energy efficiency.
