Fort Gordon contract awarded for new modular barracks

  • Follow Latest News

An Ocilla, Ga., contractor was the recipient of a $28 million contract for the construction of modular barracks, classrooms and a new dining hall at Fort Gordon, according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

The corps’ Savannah District awarded the contract May 1 to PPSC/FBS Joint Venture for the project, which will be completed within 90 days of the issuance of a notice to proceed order.

Because modular barracks are factory assembled, the installation process progresses more quickly than standard barracks projects. Once completed, Fort Gordon’s new modular barracks will provide housing for nearly 1,500 soldiers.

Similar barracks were recently completed at Fort Stewart/Hunter Army Airfield, Ga. and Fort Bragg, N.C.

The contract includes the purchase, construction and installation of two classrooms, four two-story barracks, three Company Administration buildings and a dining facility. While all facilities are within Fort Gordon’s cantonment area, the dining facility, barracks and Company Administration facilities will be grouped together on one site. The classrooms have a separate site.

The contractor will provide design and engineering services during construction, along with all site preparation and development including utilities, telecommunications, fire alarm and suppression systems, security alarms, sidewalks, landscaping, awnings, handicap ramps, steps and parking lots. Like all modern Army construction projects, the modular facilities have been designed to achieve a minimum Silver rating from the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system, in accordance with the U.S. Green Building Council.

Keep in mind that if this

Keep in mind that if this same project was being built outside of Fort Gordon the cost would be about half!

shamrock, seems $20M isn't

shamrock, seems $20M isn't much for this much construction. Tell us how you figured half the cost if off post.

brad owens ... your trailer

brad owens ... your trailer park comment must come from ignorance .
if you did a little reseach you would find that modular construction is a superior construction method that on site " stick built " someone is foward thinking on that project.
