Recruit Marksmanship Training Facility

The Recruit Marksmanship Training Facility (RMTF) at Camp Pendleton has been designed as a high-performance facility that exemplifies the Navy’s and DoD’s commitment to sustainability.  Through innovative design strategies and proper budget planning, Green Ideas was able to achieve the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Platinum designation for the facility.  The $11.1 million project provides a state-of-the-art training facility for the finest fighting force on the planet, including areas for range company (RC), marksmanship training units (MTU), academic instruction sections (AIS), administrative offices and on-base housing.  The project is highlighted by a 185 kilowatt photovoltaic generation system that provides enough on-site renewable energy for a Net-Zero energy building, demonstrating the U.S. Navy’s commitment to having 50% of their total energy consumed from alternative energy sources by 2020.


Sustainable Strategies

  • High-efficiency HVAC systems reduce energy costs

  • Highly insulated roofing and wall systems with high-performance glazing

  • Photovoltaic system in the form of carport shades, as well as a rooftop array, equals the CO2 reduction produced by 42 acres of trees

  • Low VOC-emitting materials for the building’s interior creates enhanced Indoor Air Quality

  • Building materials with high-recycled content was sourced from local vendors

  • Landscape design uses drought-tolerant plantings that do not require a permanent irrigation system

Project Results

  • LEED for New Construction Platinum level achieved

  • 92% energy cost savings above ASHRAE 90.1-2004 energy standard

  • 43% of energy costs are provided by renewable solar energy

  • 35% reduction of domestic water use

  • 91% of construction waste was diverted from the landfill
