RQ celebrated the completion of the new Dormitory at Davis-Monthan AFB on November 17th. The 51,150 sq.ft. building is two stories and will house 144 personnel. It is comprised of 36 suites, which each include four private sleeping and bathroom areas, connected by a shared space with a kitchen and dining area, lounge area, and laundry facilities. The new dorm is expected to house personnel from the 355th Equipment Maintenance Squadron and the 355th Maintenance Operations Squadron.
This project is slated to achieve LEED Gold Certification – the first LEED Gold project at Davis-Monthan AFB. Sustainable features include solar hot water, high use of daylighting, and high use of regional content on the project. In addition, a photovoltaic structure over the basketball courts and on the roof of the building will provide 60kWh for the base.
RQ would like to extend our thanks to everyone involved in making this project a success.
