When the U.S. Navy needed to grow troop housing at a North Carolina air station, they turned to long-time partner: Haskell. Haskell’s integrated design-build approach, top-of-the-industry safety record and strong sustainable design and construction capabilities drove the Navy’s decision.
Haskell’s sustainable housing solution was two, mirror-imaged four-story buildings with 180 sleeping rooms. A centrally focused layout allows for quiet and calm open spaces inside and out. A large outdoor gathering area supports relaxation with lighted basketball courts, a picnic pavilion, grills, a covered bike rack and great lawn. Residents also have access to laundry, a multi-purpose recreational lounge and vending areas.
When complete, Haskell exceeded the contractual requirements of LEED Silver by delivering a LEED Gold Certified facility. With unique rooftop rainwater harvesting capabilities, the facility produces its own toilet water. We are proud to have created such a smart, hardworking facility for the Marines.
The benefits of having the design staff and the construction staff under one roof and all working for the same employer has been apparent from the start. If you want to do design-build, working with a company like Haskell is the way to go.Jeff Rhodes, P.E. ROICC Cherry Point, U.S. Navy
