The Fort Bliss Unaccompanied Enlisted Personnel Housing (UEPH) project encompassed thirty-four (34), 2-story buildings with 1,548 modules totaling approximately 1,545,300 square feet. The DRG team provided design-assistance, quality control, and project management for manufacturing, delivery, installation, and interior finish of the apartment residences using permanent modular construction.
The residences include private sleeping rooms, a shared kitchen, and bath for two soldiers.
Air barrier testing showed that the buildings exceeded the USACE requirement of 0.25 cfm/sf by 63%.
Due to the size of the projects, the DRG team brought two manufacturers on-line. It took an enormous coordination in design detail, procurement, and installation to make modules identical between the two manufacturers.
