GreenHouse Holdings, a provider of energy efficiency and sustainable facilities solutions, announced recently that its’ wholly-owned subsidiary Life Protection, Inc. has been awarded a $151 million contract to design and build the Carlstrom National Security Training Center located in central Florida.

According to a statement, the facility, which will be equipped with a military style urban training facility, tactical driving course, obstacle training course, shooting range, as well as advanced computers and technology laboratories, will be used by the military and a variety of other first responders and law enforcement agencies for simulated training scenarios and classroom-based learning.

"GreenHouse’s expertise in environmentally friendly contracting made us an ideal fit to complete this large scale project," said Billy Jones, vice president of government services for GreenHouse Holdings. "We look forward to working with local, state and federal law enforcement to create a state of the art facility that is completed on time, on budget, and utilizes sustainable energy solutions. The winning of this marquee contract positions GreenHouse as a market leader in the governmental construction arena and will lead to future contracts creating strong revenue growth and improved profitability."
