Caddell was responsible for the design and construction of a new three-story, 96,742 SF, L-shaped Bachelor Enlisted Quarters (BEQ) at Eglin Air Force Base, FL, providing living accommodations in a campus environment for 440 Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) personnel attending the EOD School. The BEQ was constructed of structural steel framing with a brick finish and interior corridors. Each of the 110 suites provides two double-occupancy sleeping rooms, walk-in closets, a shared bathroom, and kitchenette. The building exterior design is modern, precise, and well-proportioned. The exterior façade features split-face masonry with accent bands, blast-resistant fixed windows, and a roof system of standing seam metal roofing, fascia and soffit, and pre-finished metal gutter and downspouts. The three story glazed entrance element clearly centers the building and provides entry identity. Protective canopies are provided at the main entrance and at stair exits.
