Army Reserve Base
Rigid military specifications and schedules combine for a LEED Silver project
The Army Reserve Base of Homewood, Illinois included the renovation of an existing building and a 30,000 square foot addition, a build out of offices, conference rooms and a fully functioning kitchen.
A renovation and project of this scope is a walk in the park most of the time. However, military specifications and extreme unexpected obstacles made this project a particular challenge for all involved. Delays due to hidden containers of rocket fuel and a buried Nike missile launching pad wreaked havoc with the schedule. However, Shamrock Electric helped the Army Corp of Engineers stay as close to schedule as possible and this project will finish with a minimal delay
Shamrock Electric helped build this LEED Silver project with top of the line materials, extensive accessibility, and complicated controls.
- Plentiful lighting controls and power monitoring equipment
- Low Voltage systems such as access control, fire alarm, and lighting controls are complicated and extensive
- Top of the line lightning protection and grounding system implemented on the buildings
- 16 kW Solar Array in addition to standard electrical systems
