Honeywell will help upgrade facilities and reduce overall energy usage at Fort Benning, a US Army post located on the border of Alabama and Georgia.

The $19 million modernisation project will involve facility upgrades, including installation of a utility monitoring and control system (UCMS), LED lighting and lighting control installation and occupancy sensors, as well as building envelope modifications such as windows and insulation to help reduce overall energy use while aiming to improve energy resilience.

The first phase of the project includes 228 buildings, around six million square feet of Fort Benning's total of 26 million square feet of floorage. The project aims to connect as many of the post's facilities together as possible to reduce energy intensity.

As part of the contract, Honeywell will also upgrade the current Niagara AX UMCS platform to the Niagara N4 – a platform offered by Tridium. This system will allow Fort Benning to more efficiently collect data to make faster, better-informed decisions based on real and timely information.

The improvements are expected to reduce energy usage by about 23% and generate approximately $1.3 million in annual savings. The first phase of the project in expected to complete by September 2020.

Fort Benning hosts more than 100,000 US Army members, trainees, dependents, retirees and federal civilian employees.
