At Fort Rucker, the Military Housing Privatization Initiative (MHPI) partnership led by Corvias is facilitating large-scale energy upgrades to more than 1,350 homes and renovations to 100+ legacy homes built in the 1950s.
“Advancing energy savings within our communities is one way we are continuing to improve the day-to-day comfort of our residents. It is also laying the foundation for our future operations,” said Peter Sims, Managing Director for Corvias. “These energy and water saving upgrades directly support the Department of Defense’s goal to enhance the resilience of federal infrastructure, and we estimate future utility savings of $240 million, all of which will be reinvested in our residents’ on-post living experience.”
The upgrades at Fort Rucker will include:
· Installing 900 low-flow toilets, 3,600 bathroom-faucet aerators, 1,300 kitchen-faucet aerators, and 2,700 shower heads – enabling reduced water usage and lower utility costs,
· Providing 65,000 energy-efficient lighting and fixture upgrades,
· Installing 500 HVAC split systems – increasing reliability and providing military families with more cost-efficient and comfortable homes;
· Completing 550 weatherization additions to immediately contribute to a more comfortable home environment.
In addition, more than 100 Corvias legacy homes built in the 1950s will receive major renovations, including an open floor, front and back porches and dedicated laundry rooms, new flooring, roofing, windows, gables, driveways, landscaping, exterior siding, and more efficient air conditioning units. All renovations will be delivered by December 2022.
