SAVANNAH, GA – By summer 2011, Fort Benning, Ga., will be the home of a new $24.3 million Basic Training Complex, following a contract award issued by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Savannah District on Feb. 4.
The Corps selected Clark/Caddell Joint Venture of Tampa, Fla., as the prime contractor for the project. Under the terms of the contract, Clark/Caddell Joint Venture will design and construct a basic training complex, consisting of two barracks/company operations facilities (64,700 SF each) and associated site development. Site work includes access roads, parking lots, utilities, storm sewer system, landscaping and signage. Each three-story barracks will house 240 trainees.
The $24.3 million contract was originally awarded to Clark/Caddell Joint Venture by the Corps' Fort Worth District, but was recently transferred to the Corps' Savannah District, which will oversee and manage the construction process through completion.
