Corps awards $24.3M for Ft. Benning basic training complex

Press Release

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.

Like all Army construction, the basic training complex will satisfy Silver-level criteria established by the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system, in accordance with the U.S. Green Building Council standards. Eco-friendly features include the use of energy efficient building materials, lighting and ventilation systems
