Under the Proposed Action, Lackland AFB proposes to implement an ADP to create an academic campus for DLIELC and IAAFA. The ADP proposes a layout consistent with that of an integrated educational campus that includes the following academic classrooms, offices, dorms, and related supporting facilities an International Ministries Facility and an International Student Activity Center that will accommodate the foreign student body and an Outdoor Sports Complex equipped with a fitness center, running tracks, soccer and softball fields, and a covered outdoor multi-purpose facility. The Proposed Action includes new facility and infrastructure construction, facility demolition, the installation of temporary modular trailers, and an increase in student and administrative staff populations. Approximately 450,750 square feet ft2 of facilities would be demolished within the ADP and approximately 579,000 ft2 of new facilities would be constructed within the ADP under the Proposed Action. In summary, the building footprint within the ADP would be increased by a total of approximately 124,000 ft2 which accounts for both the proposed construction and demolition. The new facilities and campus footprint would be of sufficient size and capacity to accommodate a total of approximately 4,600 students and 1,675 administrative staff from DLIELC, IAAFA, the Air Advisory Academy AAA and the Force Support Squadron FSS. This would be an increase in 3,705 students and 1,096 staff upon full implementation. AAA is currently not located at Lackland AFB but plans to relocate there within the next 5 FYs. DLIELC facilities would be constructed to sufficiently accommodate and host various AAA functions. There will be no facilities constructed that will be solely used by AAA. The total cost for implementation of the ADP is estimated to be approximately 441.8 million.
