This new Bachelor Quarters was designed to coexist harmoniously alongside a quiet Italian neighborhood.

Description

RLF provided full design of this new four-story bachelor quarters facility with dining and recreation. Construction is being performed per the phasing plans in RLF’s design package, including an integrated sustainability approach for achieving LEED Silver certification. The facility contains 230 beds in 115 standard 1+1 living modules that consist of two private bedrooms with natural daylighting, a kitchenette and a two-piece bathroom. Shared spaces are placed adjacent to the central corridor, creating a sound vestibule to aid day sleepers. Public spaces include lobby space, public toilets, a mud room, a laundry room, bulk storage and a fully equipped kitchen and dining room. Specialized building infrastructure includes electronic keycard room access with connectivity to the HVAC system to indicate occupancy, a mass notification system, distribution and pathway systems and antiterrorism/force protection (AT/FP) hardening. RLF prepared and developed construction documents(CDs) in metric units with translations, and the CDs were certified and compliant with host nation and Italian Mixed Commission requirements. RLF’s services included PCAS support.

After the design was completed and construction started, the base began phasing out its steam system. Space constraints and strict sound requirements added complexity to the HVAC design effort, which was centered around limiting noise to avoid disturbing the facility’s residents and the neighbors living in the nearby private Italian residential neighborhood. To address that concern, the RLF team successfully designed a highly efficient yet extremely quiet HVAC system.
