This project involved the renovation of Building 1004, Unaccompanied Personnel Housing (UPH) at the U.S. Army Yuma Proving Grounds located in Yuma, AZ. The purpose of this complete renovation was to upgrade existing living spaces and reduce the energy costs associated with the existing three-story, 22,866 square foot structure.

The common kitchen on the second floor was upgraded with new cabinets, appliances and interior finishes. The renovation of each living space included new flooring, installation of a small "kitchenette" appliance consisting of a single stove top, sink and microwave/convection oven unit, with an exhaust hood equipped with a fire suppression system. Bathroom renovations included new lighting, ceramic wall and floor tile, a new water closet, lavatory and "low-flow" type of fixtures to improve water conservation.

Existing CMU walls were "skimmed" and finished with a knock-down type of painted surface improving the appearance of the existing walls and providing a long lasting and durable finish. Each unit was upgraded with data/communication access adding telephone, cable and Internet access coordinated from a single point in the building. A basement laundry facilities was also renovated with new floor and wall coverings and the installation of new countertops and new commercial style washer/dryer electrical outlets.

Energy saving measures were taken to reduce energy costs and sustain a comfortable living environment. All appliances were required to meet or exceed Energy Star requirements. Improvements to the thermal envelope were employed by adding rigid insulating materials to the exterior of the building and coated with cementitious texture and acrylic stucco. Automation to the existing mechanical systems and lighting was added to improve the performance of the existing HVAC equipment and systems. Energy-saving film was applied to all windows to reduce heating and cooling costs.

This project utilized turnkey solutions in order to reduce the time required for the renovations to Building 1004 (UPH). As a result, this made renovation to each unit consistent and more cost effective. Additionally, all work was successfully carried out while portions of the building were occupied with consideration given to occupant privacy and quality of life.
