COMPLEXITY OF THE JOB
The new Airborne Equipment & Parachute Maintenance Facility managed by NAVFAC EURAFSWA is intended to provide facilities to support the transformation of the US Army, which will enhance their power projection ca-pability in accordance with US military strate-gies. The facility includes a drying tower, packing area, parachute repair and mainte-nance area, storage, shipping/staging and covered loading area. A separate parking lot and a pedestrian walkway lined with native trees guiding visitors between the parking lot and the Parachute Shop was included in the project. The total construction cost for this project was $5.6 million.
Michael-Bruno produced architectural, electri-cal, mechanical and structural in English and Italian according to current US and Italian standards, including the Aviano Design Guide, UFC, and DoD AT/FP requirements. The team prepared comprehensive engineering drawings and specifications using SPECSINTACT for both the site and the building to achieve a LEED Silver Certification. This project also entailed site improvements and utilities con-nections, including construction of an electrical substation necessary to service the new build-ing. Michael-Bruno performed evaluations, surveys, and prepared the necessary docu-mentation for demolition and environmen-tal/hazmat services related to removal of the ITAF facility that formerly occupied the con-struction site. This was done in coordination with the local health authority ASL (Azienda Sanitarie Locali).
Michael-Bruno’s LEED team prepared Energy Models for the new facility as well as oversaw the requirements of the Green Building Com-mission to meet the Silver LEED design re-quirements. The team reviewed the natural resources of the site and locale and recom-mended alternative energy, material resources, recommended plantings, indoor air recommendations and water saving technolo-gies. Michael-Bruno made several significant recommendations to enable this project to achieve LEED Silver and use all 5 categories of LEED. Key strategies include a heat recov-ery system in the parachute drying tower and the use of storm-water for irrigation and plumb-ing, which helped to achieve 30% savings in both energy and water usage for the facility. These strategies take advantage of inherent features of the building program and local cli-mate to help the owner meet their goals for sustainability while maintaining the desired character of both the region and the air base as a whole.
These services were provided to develop in-frastructure elements necessary for operational and maintenance support.
