Fort Belvoir-Fairfax Village Community Center Awarded Platinum LEED Status

By
Real Estate Broker with CJ Realty Group, Inc.

The Fairfax Village Community Center at Fort Belvoir is the first building on a U.S. military installation to be recognized with a Platinum LEED Award.  Built as a public-private partnership with the U.S. Department of the Army and Clark Pinnancle, responsible for the renovation and construction of more than 2000 homes on Fort Belvoir, the center is a showcase of green design.

For families who live on Fort Belvoir, the new village community center is more than just an award winning green design project.  It is a place where community functions can take place, where children can play or learn about native plants and where families can walk the historic Fort Belvoir trail.

When you first pull up to the building you can immediately notice one of the first green aspects of the building.  An array of solar panels on the roof above the main entrance.  Some of the things you can't see are the geothermal heat pump, the spray foam insulation and the motion controlled light sensors.  The bathrooms are outfitted with low flow toilets and the kitchen features energy star rated appliances.   It is estimated that the water savings will be 45% over a traditional building and that with the combination of solar and geothermal that there will be a 70% savings in energy bills.

Platinum LEED status is not something that is earned easily.  Awarded by the U.S. Green Building Council  projects must follow a rigorous set of guidelines from initial design through construction.  Being the first project to achieve the highest green rating on a military basis is a distinction that both the U.S. Department of the Army and Clark-Pinnacle can be proud of.

Cindy thats very cool stuff!  It's interesting how much the military is investing in alternative energy generation. They are currently testing many different forms of portable alternative energy generation in Afghanistan, Kuwait and other "hot" zones.

Mike-I met with one of the developers of a mobile command center used in our current hot zones.  They are working on making them energy independent with a wind turbine and solar.  It was very interesting technology and one that they can drop into a zone with no need for any generators or eclectricity.
