Fort Riley Tactical Equipment Maintenance Facility (TEMF)
HDR is providing full service design and LEED services for a 35,500 SF Tactical Equipment Maintenance Facility (TEMF) for an Engineer Construction Battalion Complex at Ft. Riley, KS. The TEMF is a two-story medium prototype complex which includes a POL Storage Building, Hazardous Material Storage Building, and an Organizational Storage Building. The lower level of the TEMF houses the repair/maintenance bays, 10 ton crane over all bays, SPIRNET/NIPRNET, elevator, consolidated bench repair, tool storage and a COMSEC and Arms Vaults. The upper level houses administration spaces including the administrative shop control area, classroom, restrooms, and a break room.
The facility is fully sprinkled and meets all UFAS/ADA requirements. The TEMF and the three support buildings are pre-engineered metal buildings. The building exterior was designed to reflect the architectural standard at Ft. Riley to include standing seam metal roof panels, pre-finished metal wall panels, and a 4 split face CMU wainscot. For cost reasons, all the ancillary support buildings are pre-engineered structures with standing seam metal roof panels and pre-finished metal wall panels. Interior finishes include painted gypsum board partitions, ACT and gypsum board ceilings, VCT flooring, epoxy flooring on the first floor of both TEMFs, and painted plywood in the maintenance bays
Windows were incorporated into the exterior building design that had to meet force protection requirements. Site work included 62,000 SY of concrete hardstand, utility extensions, area lighting, surface drainage, and security fencing. Sustainable design concepts were incorporated into the facility design in a variety of ways to reach the Silver level required. Specifications were written to require the maximum use of recycled materials in manufactured products, such as drywall, ceiling tile, and carpet. All paint coatings will be required to have low VOC content. Low-E operable windows were used to provide natural light, passive solar gain, and natural ventilation. Working with the Ft. Riley maintenance staff, local serviceability and maintainability issues for all finish materials and equipment was discussed and formed the primary consideration in design selections.
