Northwest climate inspires energy saving designs for Army Reserve Center
Joint Base Lewis-McChord Army Reserve Center
- Tacoma, WA
The weather doesn’t get too hot and doesn’t get too cold
The Joint Base Lewis–McChord (JBLM) is the largest Army-led joint base in the United States and is the only Army Power Projection Platform west of the Rocky Mountains. The new 1,200-member Army Reserve Center includes a 104,497-square-foot Training Center building, 15,397-square-foot Organization Maintenance Shop (OMS), and 3,817-square-foot Unheated Storage (UHS) building.
Due to the unusual northwest climate, this project provided PEC the opportunity to design innovative sustainable and energy savings features including transpiring solar collectors, large expanses of energy efficient glass to enhance daylighting, and a ground water source heat recovery chiller.
