Armed Forces Reserve Center San Marcos

  • Project Location: San Marcos, TX
  • Owner/Client: United States Federal Government
  • Project Description:

As a U.S. government facility, the Armed Forces Reserve Center in San Marcos, Texas, had to be built to a LEED standard with tight zoning and consumption criteria. DXS was chosen as basis of design to help meet these project goals by the design team and contractor recommendation. DXS provided the facility with Daikin heat recovery VRV/VRF systems with a mix of ducted and ductless fan coil units to meet the government standards of efficiency and zoning.

Military Key Considerations

DXS specializes in helping military engineering departments retrofit aging facilities with 21st century AC systems that meet the government’s high energy efficiency standards.

Many military bases have large and sprawling buildings constructed for simpler times – buildings with space constraints and minimal electrical infrastructure. These are the kinds of structures where VRF systems, with their small mechanical footprints, shine.

Because of our experience retrofitting military buildings, our DXS team is adept at navigating the federal government’s procurement process. From the initial bid to on-going maintenance, we work closely with the base engineering department to adhere to government policies and procedures every step of the way.

Key Considerations

  • Small mechanical footprint makes VRF systems ideal for retrofit projects
  • High energy efficiency meets new federal energy conservation guidelines
  • Opportunity to reduce overall building construction cost
  • Team experienced in navigating federal government procurement policies and procedures
  • Robust training program for military maintenance personnel
  • DXS onsite at five key junctures: onsite training prior to installation, quality control checks during installation, during start-up, 30 days after commissioning for building owner verification, and ongoing training for staff
  • Fast, dependable service and maintenance support after installation
  • Complete inventory of parts and equipment
