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.
