Cannon Air Force Base Temporary Lodging Facility
This project is a temporary housing facility on Cannon Air Force Base near Clovis, New Mexico. It consists of 3 single-story, multifamily buildings, with a total of 28 two-bedroom dwelling units.
The project team on this project was a combination of various Military personnel from different departments, along with a contractor and architect from different remote locations, which created substantially more bureaucratic navigation than any other project we’ve worked on. Additionally, there were major delays from design to build due to national budget issues. Unfortunately, this led to the project being designed for an older version of the LEED for Homes Rating systems, which was no longer available to the project at the time of the build. Finally, the builder was not responsive at times throughout the build.
Green Insight leveraged its long-standing relationships at the USGBC and was able to obtain a one-time exemption for the project to sneak back under the old rating system. Without this exemption, the project would not have been able to certify, as the design changes required for V4 compliance would have created another bureaucratic mess and likely killed the project altogether. The lack of responsiveness from the builder caused some missed inspections and ultimately some extra site work at the end of the project, however, through determination and diligence we made sure the project made the required corrections and met its goals.
Our project success
What our clients are saying
“Green Insight is always available on-site and in real-time. Their ability to turn things around and keep a project on track distinguishes GI from competitors. They are also creative and willing to roll with the punches. In my world, things don’t always work out perfectly but the team at Green Insight is always open to finding creative solutions to figure out the most timely, cost-efficient way to resolve issues.”
Project Manager, Pavilion Construction
“Green Insight’s team is responsive, available, and provides a tremendous sense of security. We recently had a project where the goalposts changed quickly and often during the approval process. We were able to get our project approved, but I honestly don’t know how that would have gone if we didn’t have the backup and knowledge that Green Insight provided.”
Director of Development, Landmark Homes
“When it comes to green energy consultants, Green Insight takes the stress away like no other. They bring an unbeatable combination of value-engineering, industry knowledge, and out-of-the-box creativity for solutions that work. What I value most about working with Green Insight is the relationship – which is more like a partnership that has been one of the key drivers in our success. They take the stress away. And frankly, this has been the best relationship that I’ve had with somebody in this business.”
