Recent energy upgrades to more than 1,600 homes at Fort Sill are one way Military Housing Privatization Initiative (MHPI) providers support the Department of Defense’s goal to enhance the resilience of federal infrastructure. The substantial improvements made by Corvias are part of the company’s $325 million Solutions Investment across six U.S. Army installations.
The overall investment to improve the Army’s MHPI portfolio will benefit approximately 16,000 Corvias-managed homes. Over 30 years, the program’s long-term savings are anticipated to be over $240 million, which will be reinvested back into the housing communities.
At Fort Sill, just a sample of upgrades expected to be complete in December 2022 include:
- Approximately 120 HVAC split systems.
- More than 100 weatherization improvements, including added insulation, weather stripping, and energy-efficient windows.
- Major renovations in more than 70 homes, consisting of new in-home fire suppression systems, storm shelters, interior paint, fixtures, and flooring.
- Converting more than 30 townhouses from a three-bedroom, one-bathroom configuration to a two-bedroom, two-bathroom layout to better meets the needs of military families.
“The investment in these energy conservation improvements increases the efficiency of the systems our residents use while reducing pollution and energy use,” said Pete Sims, managing director at Corvias. “Corvias excels at creating programs that provide initial, sustaining, and future benefits, which will be realized with the long-term savings that will be reinvested into our Army housing communities to enable continual improvements.”
