Five Stories in Kāne‘ohe Bay

This new Bachelor Enlisted Quarters located on Marine Corps Base Hawai‘i at Kāne‘ohe Bay was a design-build collaboration with Nan, Inc., Mason Architects and Group 70 International. The series of interconnected, multi-level buildings (the first 5-story BEQ on base) are connected via a single-loaded walkway overlooking a series of three landscaped courtyards.

  • The 95,595-square-foot complex provides living quarters for 300 Marines in 150 double-occupant rooms.
  • The facility complies with Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection design standards, including requirements for progressive collapse.
  • The project is targeted to receive LEED Silver certification with various sustainable features such as:
    • a 1976-panel,470-kilowatt solar power system will provide more than half a million kilowatt-hours of electrical power each year - the annual energy usage of the barracks;
    • stormwater quality control;
    • low-flow plumbing fixtures in each unit’s own bathroom to reduce potable water usage and wastewater sent to the sewage system;
    • optimized energy performance with high performance glass, mass walls, shaded overhangs, low wattage lighting, occupancy sensors, and high efficiency centralized air-conditioning;
    • nighttime light pollution reduction.
