As the Prime Contractor, T.Y. Lin International (TYLI) provided planning, design, and construction management services for the U.S. Army’s 81st Regional Support Command’s (RSC) program of lifecycle resets. Contracted through the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Charleston District, the project team was charged with evaluating, repairing, and replacing mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and architectural components of various facilities on 32 U.S. Army bases throughout the Southeast United States. The 32 facilities totaled 927,358 square feet of building space.
The application of best practices and TYLI’s extensive site contacts and resources developed through the execution of multiple task orders enabled the project team to provide unsurpassed leadership in scheduling and coordinating the field investigation and mobilization. This program resulted in significant energy savings for the facilities addressed under this program. The goal was to achieve 30% energy reduction, in compliance with ASHRA and DoD Energy Standards
