Blazing the trail since the very inception of the Military Housing Privatization Initiative (MHPI) in 1996, Balfour Beatty Communities has become the nation’s largest provider of military family housing with a portfolio that includes the comprehensive military housing operations for 55 Army, Navy and Air Force installations across the United States.
We are exceptionally proud of the important work we do for military families, from providing new housing and significant renovations and refurbishments to existing housing, as well as more responsive property management and maintenance support. From our dynamic LifeWorks program to community centers, parks and other amenities, we strive to create thriving communities that fully support the unique and evolving needs of our U.S Service Members and their families.
We understand the unique requirements of military families—and the challenges they face—and have worked to design communities and a suite of military resident programs that deliver a customized living experience for these families. At the heart of it all is a team of employees committed to delivering exceptional customer service in everything we do, every day.
Military families move—a lot. We have established programs in place to help make relocating to a new area of the country as seamless as possible. Our teams streamline the move-in/move-out process and work closely with other installations to assist in getting both incoming and outgoing families settled quickly. And we even offer a rewards program to those families who continue to live with us when they move to a new installation.
Our goal is every resident’s 100% satisfaction with every aspect of our service. To ensure we are delivering on our promises, we survey our military residents on an annual basis. This critical program helps us identify not only what’s working but what needs improvement, allowing our teams to make ongoing adjustments and enhancements to our service so that it is consistently 5-star.
In-line with the Department of Defense’s ‘Net Zero’ mission, we approach all property development with an eye for sustainability and environmental innovation. We build not just for today, but for future generations to come through creative recycling and reuse programs, building to the LEED and National Green Building Standard, as well as a commitment to alternative energy solutions including an industry-leading rooftop solar program.
Our programs go above and beyond in order to take care of our residents.LEARN MORE
Our award-winning LifeWorks program provides a busy calendar of engaging events and activities for residents of all ages, from fitness clubs and seasonal crafts, to community gardens and cooking classes. A core offering at all of our military communities, LifeWorks allows residents to meet their neighbors, socialize and make memories to last a lifetime.
Located in El Paso, Texas, Fort Bliss Family Homes is our largest military community, consisting of more than 4,400 homes and extensive amenities including community centers, pools, playgrounds, fitness centers and various athletic courts and fields.
Balfour Beatty Communities has made significant contributions to enhance the quality of life for military families stationed at Fort Bliss starting with our extensive construction and renovation work. Our newest homes have been built to the National Green Building Standard’s ‘Emerald’ rating, making them among the most efficient and environmentally-friendly in all military housing.
As part of an innovative energy program, we have partnered to install rooftop solar systems currently generating more than 13MW of clean energy for the base.
We are proud to serve those who serve. To show our gratitude for all these heroes do, our Foundation developed a Field of Honor memorial honoring Fort Bliss’ fallen soldiers from the Iraqi Freedom, Enduring Freedom and New Dawn campaigns.
