Permanent Party Barracks Phase I

US Army Corps of Engineers

The project consisted of the design and construction of 18 multi-level apartment buildings used to house 180 soldiers. Each 3,660 SF building consists of five apartment units, totaling 65,880 SF for the entire project. Each unit is constructed in a 1+1 configuration with a shared kitchen and dining area. The 9.6 acre site also includes parking lots, walking paths, a basketball court and a volleyball court.

The buildings were designed to take advantage of the efficiencies of panelized wood construction and residential building components. Each building features a shared central exterior walkway and covered porches for each unit.

The project was also constructed as a Green project utilizing the government’s SPiRiT program. The project was built with the efficiencies of panelized wood construction and residential building components. Other Green components included indoor air quality program, using low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emitting materials, and using locally manufactured materials.
