Bachelor Enlisted Quarters, Eglin Air Force Base
The EOD School provides ordnance disposal training for all branches of our armed forces. The Navy is emphasizing energy efficiency and renewables over its entire footprint. DoD interest in reduced energy usage is well founded – one in three Army combat casualties results from protection of fuel transportation and storage sites. At Eglin, the design team has designed a high performance green BEW for Navy personnel that features solar hot water pre-heating and extensive photovoltaics. US Army Corps of Engineers self-certified LEED Silver. The new EOD Applied Instruction complex at Eglin, also designed by LS3P, is currently under construction.
