Future Base Design
Future Base Design (FBD) is a first-of-its-kind project for Naval Facilities Command Mid-Atlantic. The project is an innovative delivery initiative transforming, optimizing, and modernizing installation capabilities and resiliency while reducing total ownership cost and footprint. FBD will utilize public-private-partnerships (P3) to address unfunded base facilities’ operational and infrastructure requirements by maximizing approximately 1,100 acres of underutilized land. As the owner’s agent, our team oversees business case development, site/opportunity identification, P3 authorization alignment, environmental compliance, facilitation/partnership development, and negotiations. Anticipated projects planned for the base exceed $5 billion in construction cost, including off-shore wind power, on-base solar power, telecommunications, retail, and recreation development.
Under the Future Based Design concept, NAS Oceana, in partnership with the City of Virginia Beach, is looking to lease underutilized land to private businesses in exchange for in-kind consideration that can be directed toward much-needed building maintenance and other infrastructure projects on the installation. This partnership is a great example of why the Navy is proud to call Virginia Beach and all of Hampton Roads home.CAPT Bob HolmesNAS Oceana Commanding Officer
