Military Construction Black & Veatch military construction (MILCON) projects are marked by cost and schedule precision and superior safety performance. That’s how we’ve earned our ranking among the nation’s top design-build contractors. Our MILCON facility experience includes: Headquarters facilities and data centers. Company operations and tactical equipment maintenance facilities. Aircraft hangars. Military housing, chapels and medical facilities. Educational facilities and training centers. Maritime facilities and border security infrastructure. Command, control communications, computers and intelligence (C4I) facilities. “Black and Veatch is an excellent project partner. The Chicago District would happily work with Black and Veatch on projects in the future.” David Schiemann, Civil Engineer, USACE Chicago District, Fish Barrier IIA Power Quality Improvements, CPARS Rating, April 28, 2016 In just six months, Black & Veatch prepared almost 1,500 construction drawings for the Custer Hill facility at Fort Riley. Threat Reduction To help make the world a safer place, our work focuses on counter-proliferation, nonproliferation and active reduction of weapons of mass destruction stockpiles. We collaborate with recipient nations on cost-effective local delivery of services at low risk. We minimize the use of expatriate professionals and instead prioritize in-country talent and leadership for sustainable program support into the future. Threat reduction program highlights include: Nuclear weapons tracking and control. Infectious disease surveillance and tracking. Prevention of pathogen theft, sale, diversion or release. Human and veterinary biological threat reduction capabilities and public health system. “The Black & Veatch team has performed integration and coordination activities very well. B&V is responsive to interaction requests from DTRA and has taken efforts to identify and mitigate potential problems that might negatively impact the contract schedule. When the contract was modified to increase the size of the project, Black & Veatch efficiently contracted for the additional resources necessary without delaying project execution.” CPARS Rating, Febuary 2016 Military Microgrids Black & Veatch understands the military’s energy security challenges. Microgrid solutions can bolster energy resilience while allowing for greater deployment of renewable energy sources such as solar and wind power. We provide tailored solutions that support Department of Defense (DoD) energy initiatives and integrate smart grid controls for long-term cost-savings and energy efficiency. Our microgrid solutions: Generate mission-critical energy in the case of power grid disruptions Provide support services to the central grid Help military installations reduce utility demand charges Manage overall energy load Facilitate demand response programs Enhance renewable energy deployment Offer significant energy cost-savings for both the base and local utilities Bolster cybersecurity practices base-wide 0 Related Insights Top 3 Benefits of Military Microgrids The advantages of deploying microgrids are abundant, with sustainability and reliability leading the charge. These are easy to communicate on a community level, but have more specific benefits when installed at military applications. Following on from U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) initiatives aimed at deploying more renewable energy, the cost-savings, distributed energy resource (DER) applications and energy security benefits be gained cannot be overlooked. Microgrids Boost Energy Resilience and Independence at Military Installations The Department of Defense has committed to deploying 3 gigawatts of renewable energy throughout military installations by 2025. Military bases all over the world have taken a proactive approach in achieving these goals, with many implementing solar photovoltaic generation. EIDSS and PACS Program Prevents WMD Proliferation in Former Soviet States The proliferation of weapons of mass destruction – be it nuclear or biological – falls under the auspices of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), and with the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, it has placed a strong focus on working with former Soviet states to make sure these threats do not fall into the wrong hands. Four Keys to Managing Utilities Regulations For the past several decades, a major challenge facing utilities has been the constant evolution of the regulatory landscape.
