Missile Range and American Naval Base 
Souda, Crete

BASIL has been involved in the design of the facilities of the American Naval Base at Souda for many years, starting in 1962 when the firm undertook the NATO Missile Firing Range installation. Works have since included the design of new buildings, the updating and refurbishment of existing ones, the construction of network systems (roads, water supply, irrigation, sewage disposal, electrical supply and telecommunications). The projects have involved architectural, engineering, mechanical and electrical and landscape design, as well as consulting and construction supervision.
