MBI Award-Winning, LEED Silver-Compliant Barracks
Fort Bliss is America's second largest Army Post and occupies 1,700 square miles of land in both Texas and New Mexico. Fort Bliss is also the Army's largest maneuver area in the United States. Established in 1849, Fort Bliss continues to be a strategic part of our nation's defense.
IDBS and our strategic partners worked together to complete a major installation of new buildings at Fort Bliss. Each building was constructed to the exacting specifications of the Army Corps of Engineers to serve as comfortable housing accommodations for soldiers between deployments.
Since 2002, IDBS has been a major player in the military housing industry. The goal of the military is to upgrade the quality of living space for soldiers - quickly. Our core strengths of consistent high quality and fast construction makes us a natural fit for this demanding military housing.
We have constructed more than 1.2 million square feet of LEED Silver-compliant barracks for the military.
IDBS created the template for two-, three- and four-story wood frame construction in modular form, which has been adopted by the Army Corps of Engineers for modern military barracks buildings. Working with the Corps, IDBS developed a structural reinforcement and connection design that allows military buildings to meet the resistance-to-progressive-collapse anti-terrorism requirements for multi-story buildings instituted by the government after Oklahoma City's Murrah Federal Building tragedy.
