Greenview Global principal Rick Van Diepen was the national Sustainability Manager while at PGAL Architects and served on the pre-award team with Design-Build partner, Martin Harris Construction. PGAL designed the Unit Maintenance Facility that includes a Company Operations Facility (COF) and a Tactical Equipment Maintenance Facility (TEMF) on an undeveloped site on the Fort Huachuca Army base in Arizona. The TEMF was designed to be consistent with a heavy equipment maintenance facility with an 18,000 sf administrative and maintenance building, vehicle parking hardstands and a storage building. The COF is designed consistent with an office and warehouse building; composed of a 4,900 sf administration module and a 6,577 sf readiness module with a hardstand. Both facilities were designed to have a 25-year useful life before a possible re-use/re-purpose or renovation requirement with a 50-year building replacement life and both were required to achieve LEED Silver certification.
