A new consolidated support facility simplifies operations for NBK Bangor
This project constructed a 19,991 SF, three-story, blast-hardened new building in the Waterfront Restricted Area (WRA) to primarily serve the Nuclear Regional and Maintenance Department (NRMD), which was dispersed throughout NBK Bangor, by consolidating NRMD functions into one facility with proximity to the Delta Pier. The new building is used for tool/equipment kitting, storage, light industrial areas, personnel, classrooms, and administration supporting fleet maintenance operations for all Pacific Fleet submarines.
Notkin, a P2S Company, was the prime consultant and mechanical engineer for this project. Energy modeling has been done per UFC 1-200-02 and ASHRAE 90.1-2010 Appendix G guidelines. An LCCA has been done using the Building Life Cycle Costing (BLCC) program. The LCCA analyzed the use of VAV heat pumps with electric and gas heat, VRF and the ASHRAE baseline. The facility complies with UFC 1-200-02 High Performance and Sustainable Building Requirements and is designed to Guiding Principles Compliance standards and will be seeking certification when built.
This project was recognized by the Green Building Initiative as a High Performance and Sustainable Building. To be recognized as a High Performance and Sustainable Building, the design and construction were reviewed by a third-party sustainability accreditation company to demonstrate compliance with FEMP Sustainability Guiding Principles, which are codified for Department of Defense in UFC 1-200-02 High Performance and Sustainable Buildings. Compliance includes demonstrating the inclusion of integrated design principles, equipment commissioning, life cycle cost-effective energy conservation systems, enhancing indoor environmental quality, reducing the environmental impact of materials, and considering climate risks. The building systems were modeled to perform 36% better than the current energy code. Green Building Initiative provided their final assessment of the design and construction in September 2021.
