Ballard CLC served as the Designer of Record for this Energy Conservation Investment Program (ECIP) project funded by the MILCON program to improve energy efficiency of DOD facilities while reducing associated utility energy and non-energy related costs. ECIP is a key component of DOD’s energy management strategy, with projects that focus on energy and water savings, implementing renewable energy, and converting systems to cleaner energy sources. These projects replaced windows and doors in 17 buildings at Fort Polk, in an effort to improve energy efficiency. The project was successfully completed in June 2011 and received an “Above Average” CCASS rating from the client. Ballard CLC and the Sealaska Constructors team went above and beyond to earn their reputation at Fort Polk, creating innovative solutions to numerous challenges that surfaced on-site.
