New squadron operations building at Pease ANG base opens
The $10-million project was more than four years in the making and is one of many reasons the base was selected to be one of the first homes for the new KC-46A refueling tankers, which will be phased in over the next several years.
The new building will be LEED Silver-certified and is designed to comply with energy and resource recommendations of the U.S. Green Buildings Council.
In addition to office space, and the 190-seat briefing room, the building includes billeting for readiness crews, high security office space and equipment repair and storage space.
The building uses heat pumps to help deliver heat where it is most needed, incorporates solar hot water panels, maximizes natural lighting where possible and will conserve on water usage as well.
