In February 2016 JMR+H completed the design for a new Vehicle Maintenance shop (VMS) in Foley, Alabama. This Army Vehicle Maintenance Shop consists of three main functional groups: administrative, work bays, and storage. Supporting these main functional groups are the special training and support areas. Within each group are subordinate functional areas that contribute to the operation of the group. Circulation and structural space are allocated to each project based on the size of the other authorized spaces. The administrative group consists of spaces for offices and maintenance support. Supporting spaces include such functions as the administrative support rooms, inspection library, production control, small arms repair w/ vault, classroom areas, break room, and the entrance lobby.

Pelham Range Armed Forces Reserve Center
Cost: $6.7 M Size: 34,000 SF Green Certification: LEED Platinum
The Pelham Range Armed Forces Reserve Center, an Army Reserve and National Guard facility for logistics, weapons, and unit administration training is the state’s first LEED Platinum building. As a role model for sustainable construction, it received the 2012 Clover Award from the Leed Green Building Council.
The building achieves an energy cost savings of 38 percent, with efficiency measures including an improved thermal envelope, reduced interior lighting power density, occupancy sensors, high efficiency geo-thermal pumps and on-site renewable energy – a photovoltaic panel field that generates 12 percent of the projects energy cost. By embracing green/sustainable technologies, strategies, and design, the National Guard will save approximately $80,000 over the next 20 years in this facility.
