Military Housing Association member company Corvias recently completed more than 142,000 family housing improvements at Fort Meade as a part of their $325 million Solutions Investment, a first-of-its-kind direct equity investment into an established military housing partnership. This large-scale effort to install energy-efficient upgrades will continue to enhance the living experience for Army families at Fort Meade.
Partnering with Johnson Controls, the energy conservation initiative will increase water conservation, improve energy efficiency, combat rising temp and much more.
The latest Fort Meade upgrades include:
- More than 6,000 low-flow toilets; 8,000 bathroom faucet aerators; 2,600 kitchen faucet aerators; and 4,800 shower heads.
- 112,000 energy-efficient lighting and fixture upgrades
- More than 1,200 HVAC split systems
- More than 2,600 “smart” thermostats
- 1,200 weatherization improvements, including insulation, weather stripping, and energy-efficient windows.
- Approximately 2,600 water meters to ensure accurate measurement of water consumption and precise usage reports, providing early detection of water leaks or reverse flow.
The overall investment at Fort Meade also includes the renovation of 120 homes, including upgrades to kitchens, bathrooms, and flooring to improve the resident experience and reduce maintenance costs of older housing inventory.
“Our community will benefit from these enhancements for many years to come,” said Peter Sims, managing director for Corvias. “We have upgraded homes with the best technology available. As a result, we estimate future utility savings of $240 million across installations, which will be reinvested back into our military communities to benefit our residents.”
