FLETC Two-Story Prefabricated Modular Dormitory
The Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Law Enforcement Training Center needed a dormitory capable of housing 440 students after an increased demand for student housing because of updated training requirements. The contract from the government was issued as a modular construction project to reduce construction and facility costs and time.
Sustainable Modular Management provided a two-story, 48,800-square-foot dormitory that fit their needs. The project was awarded through multiple award contract, NIMACC II Multiple Award IDIQ. Sustainable Modular Management was awarded as the modular provider for the project because of their ability to provide full turnkey services and perform the entire modular scope under one entity.
The exterior of the building is finished with a stucco material that was site applied. It hides the marriage lines from unit to unit, offering the appearance of a stick-built structure. The building features a site-installed standing seam metal roof with a three to 12-pitch frame with metal trusses.
What’s most impressive about this building is that it was designed to meet Sustainable Building Criteria, similar to Leed Gold Certification. As a result, the design and construction of this building meets and achieves the Guiding Principles for Sustainable Federal Buildings and the 2020 version of the associated instructions. The building’s mechanical and plumbing are energy efficient, and 65% of the finishes, including the flooring, consist of recycled materials.
