U.S. Army Reserve Center Ground breaking, Fort A.P. Hill, Nov 2011

– High efficient LED site lighting that is dark skies compliant, minimizing light pollution to surrounding areas and innovative stormwater management on site. “This is all part of the Army‟s holistic Net Zero approach which increases our ability to achieve the larger goal of sustainable installations,” Haefner said.
Installations reach net zero through five interrelated steps of reduction; repurposing; recycling and composting; energy recovery; and disposal.
As the Army conducts an extremely complex process of managing the business of living, working and training on installations, use and production of resources must balance so there‟s no over consumption or waste, Haefner said.
“The most exciting part of the Army Net Zero vision is this: we all have a part to play in it,” Haefner added. “This Reserve Center is one of those projects with vision. Capital energy projects are few and far between, but it is the drive of the customer, in this case, the U.S. Army Reserve, who wished to take a lead role in Net Zero initiatives are a part of this strong desire towards sustainable installations. They have taken up the challenge, Fort A.P. Hill will help them realize it, the Corps of Engineers will manage the project, Charpie will design it and Korte will build it.”
During the ceremony, Tom Lyerla, Korte project executive, and Mike Roach of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers joined Haefner with gold shovels to break ground for the center. “Fort A.P. Hill is proud of all her training facilities and flexibility which she provides for almost 100,000 Warriors who train here every year. This center … upholds that motto to provide „The Best Training and Support—Anywhere,‟” Haefner said. Continue reading
