Relocation Planning and Design Services for Infantry Brigade Installation

Project Description

  • Client:

Benham prepared a comprehensive cost model for the 173rd Infantry Brigade’s new installation in Dal Molin Airfield, Vicenza, Italy, working in collaboration with NESCO International, our host consultant from Rome.

“Benham quickly responded and remained flexible as the program morphed. They were always willing to change the design to improve the customer satisfaction as long as code and regulation impacts were avoided." – Horace Miller, NAVFAC

We provided planning and design services for development of the site master plan, conceptual design, and preparation of DesignBuildSM request for proposal (RFP) documents for 19 types of facilities, totaling 2 million square feet.
