JSF Academic Training Facility

April 01, 2014

JSF Academic Training Facility


  • Location: Eglin Air Force Base, Florida

  • Project Value: $68 Million

Project Scope:  The Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) Academic Training Center is a 260,000-square-foot, multi-story facility, providing a modern and functional space that houses all of the non-deployable training components for the F-35 aircraft. This facility’s main focus is aimed at training both operators and maintainers from the U.S. Air Force, Navy, and Marines, as well as those from other NATO countries.

Military Operations Asset 
Different branches of military and foreign military allies are invited to train in different briefing rooms containing soundproof panels and shielded electronic systems, therefore ensuring their military pilots and maintenance workers can learn the F-35 in a secure environment. This facility is a key factor in the ongoing peacekeeping missions of the NATO Alliance as well as a tremendous asset to U.S. military operations. Further, the facility provides a communications backbone that allows for real-time feedback as well as remote operational capabilities; military personnel can train on simulators at multiple locations across the country simultaneously on the same mission.

Facility Features 
Major features of the facility include a 75,000-square-foot secured wing housing 10 full-mission simulator pods equipped with briefing and debriefing rooms, operator station, and server rooms; a 50,000-square-foot maintenance training wing with a hangar bay equipped with five full-sized F-35 fuselage mock-up training devices; 28 classrooms for both flight and maintenance instruction, a 210-seat auditorium with a state-of-the-art audio video and video teleconferencing components, administrative spaces, conference rooms, and computer server rooms. Supporting facilities include utilities, exterior communications, paving, storm drainage, exterior lighting and site improvements.

A.K. Suter Elementary School

July 01, 2015

  • Size: 120,000 SF

  • Completion Date: Summer 2015

  • Architect: Caldwell Associates Architects



The first phase of this 120,000 SF state of the art elementary school replacement project was completed in December of 2014. The new building replaces A.K. Suter�s original early 1900�s school which was nestled in the center of historic East Pensacola Heights. Morette Company is currently working on the second phase of the project scheduled for completion in July 2015. 

Morette Company has worked closely not only with the project team, but also with the surrounding businesses and neighborhood residents to coordinate, plan and schedule construction activities in order to minimize disruptions to the surrounding areas. This has been an integral part of the project due to an extremely constricted project site situated in a residential neighborhood.   

The new two story school reflects the style of the historic neighborhood in which it is located with brick veneer and cement board exterior siding. The school accommodates 600 students with core areas designed for 800 students allowing for future capacity. The facility is designed to be Energy Star certified.

Ernest Ward Middle School

June 01, 2015

  • Project Size: 85,000 sf

  • Project Cost: $18,000,000

  • Completion: 2015


This facility, constructed for the Escambia County School District, is a new Middle school. During the first 6 months, Greenhut gave back to the School District $100,000 that we had achieved in buyout and cost savings so that those dollars could be spent on optional upgrades or other ECSD needs. The project was built on an existing campus that was active with students. Safety for students was priority one. Over$325,000 worth of value engineering was implemented into the project. Initial Schematic budget was within 1.28% of the Guaranteed Maximum Price established nearly 10 months later.

M.C. Blanchard Judicial Center

190 W Government Street, Pensacola, Florida


  • Size: 320,000 SF

  • Completion Date: September 1999

  • Architect: HDR/Carlan-Killam



This project consisted of addition and renovation work to the M.C. Blanchard Judicial Center in downtown Pensacola, Florida. Work was phased and sequenced in order to maintain court operations throughout the construction process. The new construction consisted of five new courtrooms, additional floor space for State Attorney and Public Defender offices, three new judge chambers, additional prisoner sally-port, new mechanical rooms with new chillers, a new law library and a new security/controls system.  Renovation work was completed on all existing elevators, cooling towers, and a drive-in teller area. Approximate tax savings through owner direct purchase program was over $400,000. Value Engineering, determined at design phase, produced a savings of almost $4,000,000.

Pensacola City Hall

July 01, 2005



  • Project Cost: $6,215,312

  • Completion: June 2006

  • Size of Project: 93,500 sf

  • Delivery Method: CM at Risk


The City of Pensacola City Hall was severely damaged during Hurricane Ivan. As a result of roofing failures during the storm, most of the building was inundated with rain water. Greenhut was engaged to make the building watertight on an emergency basis and subsequently was selected to be the Construction Manager on the $7.5 million program to recondition the building space. The work included a new roof, new elevators, reinforcing the exterior wall, a new Central Energy Plant, new interior mechanical/electrical systems, and new interior finishes. Greenhut worked extensively with the City, the City’s insurance company, and FEMA for a period of months to achieve an equitable adjustment for the cost for which FEMA would be responsible.

Troop Medical Clinic

April 01, 2015

Troop Medical Clinic

Eglin AFB

  • Location: Eglin Air Force Base, Florida

  • Project Value: 

Project Scope:  The 21,200-square-foot Troop Medical Clinic at Eglin AFB serves the 7th Special Forces Group and is designed and constructed to facilitate an easy patient experience.

The clinic provides primary care, behavioral health care, physical therapy, dentistry as well as a complement of ancillary services including laboratory, radiology and pharmacy.

Military Healthcare Now and for the Future
The 21,000-square-foot facility replaced an interim 3,000-square-foot facility at Eglin AFB to serve the 7th Special Forces Group and Army Medical Department active duty personnel that relocated from Ft. Bragg, NC.

Primary care at the new Troop Medical Clinic is divided into the exam, treatment, and staff zones. Zones are sequenced to optimize low patient turnaround time. The large mechanical and electrical rooms are located on the back side of the building, away from the patient entry and encounter space. This allows personnel to perform routine maintenance with little impact to the day-to-day operations of the clinic.

Building expansion and flexibility are also important parts of the clinic’s design. Troop Medical Clinic is constructed to accommodate both current and future missions of the 7th Special Forces Group. The floor plan is organized in a grid to accommodate future need, including a steel column-and-beam structural system that can be easily expanded on both sides of the facility.

Multiple Clients 
Troop Medical Clinic is unique because the 7th Special Forces Group is an Army installation on Air Force property. Therefore, BL Harbert was responsible for satisfying the varied and sometimes conflicting desires of the different client groups. To overcome this challenge, our team worked closely with the project stakeholders to make sure all criteria were satisfied and both clients were pleased.

Gulf Breeze Community Center

Gulf Breeze Community Center

Gulf Breeze, Florida


The client requested the space be collaborative in nature to reflect the way they do business. Offices were designed with large areas of interior glass to appear open and to bring natural daylight into the entire space. Support staff offices were located near management and small conversation areas were designed throughout the space to encourage frequent communication.
