DAYTON, Ohio – A ribbon cutting ceremony held at the 711th Human Performance Wing (HPW) at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base marked the completion of the largest construction effort at the base since World War II. B&N was part of the team that created more than 680,000 square feet of facilities to house the HPW. The $239 million project was completed almost three months ahead of schedule.
The 711th Human Performance Wing is a newly-created U.S. Air Force unit whose primary mission areas are aerospace medicine, science and technology and human systems integration. The HPW complex is home to the first human-centric warfare wing with research, consultation and education under one organization.
Through the project team’s careful collaboration, this large-scale project finished ahead of schedule, allowing the U.S. Air Force to move in earlier than expected. Working as a subconsultant to Cannon Design, B&N provided the following services for the HPW project:
According to the U.S. Air Force, the HPW complex was established in response to the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) directives.
