As a part of the Air Mobility Command East (AMC East), MacDill Air Force Base was the company's first endeavor under the Air Force's housing privatization program. The community hosts a total of 527 homes, including 327 new single-family and duplex homes for officers and enlisted families in Tampa, Florida. Designed to increase camaraderie and foster interaction between neighbors, MacDill features upgraded neighborhood amenities such as a new 6,000-square-foot welcome center, a pool, and other community amenities. Additionally, the plan included provisions for providing uninterrupted access to the nearby elementary school.
Using green construction techniques, the project team recycled roof tiles, CMU block, and 37,000 tons of concrete and asphalt for road base and stem wall in-fill at MacDill Family Housing. In addition, the project team donated appliances from former homes, such as refrigerators, stoves, vanities, and cabinets, to Habitat for Humanity. The team also saved over 130 trees on site, 77 of which were oak trees that were 30 to 50 years old. For new vegetation, the team selected native species for drought hardiness and to reduce the amount of irrigation required. The project's other sustainable features include recycled mulch, a Florida Water Star-compliant irrigation system, low-flow toilets, low-voltage wiring systems, recycled aluminum gutters, and Green Label Plus carpets and pads.
