Updated USAF policy and planning documents, such as the Design Flood Elevation and Wind Speed memorandums, were reviewed to identify design criteria and/or concepts to achieve the desired level of resilience and sustainability performance. Available data regarding hurricane intensity, storm surge, flooding, and sea level rise were also reviewed.
A network of subject matter experts was engaged to identify an array of resilience and sustainability concepts. Prioritization required engagement and alignment with a range of Tyndall AFB personnel and USAF departments. The current Master Plan was used as the base map for the effort.
The DD 1391 funding requests incorporated resilience and sustainability requirements in the project descriptions and cost estimates.
To facilitate the progression of the built environment from its current state to its desired end state, the team assembled data from the building surveys and the Master Plan. Every building that needed to be replaced must go through the approval process sanctioned by Congress. Therefore, a complete inventory of demolition projects was compiled to determine what facilities would need to be replaced. The decision matrices used to inform this list compilation are explained in Design Intent. Three demolition categories were identified to bring the current site layout to the end state, including those buildings that have already been demolished, those that are scheduled for demolition due to damage, and buildings that will be demolished to facilitate the arrangement of the Master Plan.
Proposed buildings submitted for approval and funding during fiscal years 2019 and 2020 totaled more than 2.3 million square feet. Nearly 8 miles of roadways, complete pedestrian/bicycle network, major utility backbone, and three entry control facilities were included to support these buildings. Each project was presented in DD 1391 format that detailed the typology, program, size, orientation, site plan, and cost estimate, including 10% architectural design cost. These projects were comprised of mission-dependent facilities and were sited with reference to the Master Plan. The orientation, infrastructure, and cost estimates incorporated the strategies for sustainability and resiliency as they had been identified and prioritized through the development process.
