Balfour Beatty Communities is partnering with ENGIE Services U.S., an international energy group and global leader in low-carbon energy, on a project to improve the energy performance of more than 1,000 privatized Army homes at Fort Eustis and Fort Story. The $12.2 million contract will deliver energy efficiency improvements through an innovative self-funding Energy Savings Performance Contract (ESPC).

“This project will bring immediate upgrades to critical systems in the homes of military families at Fort Eustis and Fort Story,” said Mark Lavin, Executive Vice President for Balfour Beatty Communities.

Upgrades to the Fort Eustis and Fort Story homes will include high-efficiency HVAC systems, weatherization sealing, and comprehensive water efficiency and energy upgrades through domestic water retrofits and LED lighting technology.

Lt. Gen. Doug Gabram, Commanding General of U.S. Army Installation Management Command, said, “The Army is proud of BBC’s engagement in developing wide-ranging investment plans to improve the quality of homes through new construction, renovations, energy performance, and demolition as part of the Housing Implementation Plan,” he said.

The project is expected to be completed in the fall of 2021.
