Hoefer Wysocki Modernizes Whiteman AFB Clinic, Achieves USGBC LEED v4 Certification

August 2, 2019

Whiteman Air Force Base, in Knob Noster, Mo., home of the 509th Bomb Wing and the world’s only B-2 Spirit Stealth Bomber unit, has recently completed a $28.5 million update of the base’s existing medical facility. Originally built in 1979, the clinic is the base’s primary healthcare center, operated by the 509th Medical Group and annually serves more than 12,000 patients. Maintaining clinic operations during the renovation was essential. Careful planning, construction staging and installation of a Temporary Phasing Facility (TPF) allowed departments to remain operational during construction.

The Whiteman AFB clinic has received LEED v4 certification, the U.S. Green Building Council’s (USGBC) most advanced sustainability rating, making it one of the first facilities to earn this designation. Key aspects of the Whiteman AFB LEED v4 certification include:

  •  Significant reduction in water usage
  •  Diversion of landfill waste during construction
  •  Material selection for finishes and furnishings 

WHO: Ashley Eusey, P.E., LEED AP, GGP, Sustainability Specialist, at Hoefer Wysocki can provide commentary related to this facility and the aspects that differentiate LEED v4 from previous versions of the certification. Ashley can also discuss:

  • Sustainability metrics and measurement
  • Achievement of LEED v4 goals at Whiteman Air Force Base
  • Lessons learned related to successful LEED v4 certification
  • Factors that drive property owners and facility managers to pursue sustainability certification
