For utilizing environmentally friendly building practices, the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver Certification has been awarded to one of the recently completed modular buildings at Fort Bliss, Texas. It is one of 34 two-story permanent structures, encompassing over 2,000 apartments, for housing enlisted personnel. Subcontractor Warrior Group combines modular construction with stick-built methods. President and CEO Gail Warrior said, “Our factory processes also address recycling and reuse of materials and allow us to build tightly sealed structures. This reduces air infiltration and makes the buildings more energy efficient.” Enclosed factory construction eliminates weather interruption, so the production time is cut 20-30 percent. Soil erosion from heavy machinery on site is also reduced. According to openPR.com, the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) awarded the LEED certification, which recognizes projects that encourage sustainable green building practices for increased environmental and health performance. Warrior is one of the largest women-owned construction services in the U.S.
