Renovation of Enlisted Barracks at Ft. Gordon, GA

This is enlisted personnel barracks at Ft. Gordon Georgia after renovation and upgrading. The original barracks were constructed in the 1960s.  It was designed with a center hall which led to two large barracks areas one either side of the hall.  There were gang type showers and toilet facilities with the barracks being designed for men only.  The barracks had been sitting empty and unused for some time before this renovation project was initiated.


 The first step was to demolish the structure down to the  steel and concrete,  and rebuilding a 40,645 square foot, three-story barracks. 


The design called for a co-ed barracks with  male living quarters on the first and third floors, and female living quarters on the second floor.


The design called for the addition of three walkways, one on  each floor,  circumventing the structure to allow exterior access, only, to all dorm rooms from one controlled access point with a guard post inside the entry to assure only males went to the male occupied floors and only female residents had access to the  2nd floor.  


   Each room is designed for two (2) people with its own bathroom, individual ac/heat controls.  They also have Internet, and TV cable hook ups, and are tied into the base's security system.


Base security along with Homeland Security mandates required certain security measures as well such as the elimination of trees and shrubbery close to or next to the barracks, and parking for resident and visitor vehicles to be in an assigned lot a specified distance from the barracks.


We converted the  center hall to a mechanical chase where we ran all the plumbing  piping and all HVAC piping and  duct work.  The hallway was also used to run all electrical and CATV and Internet cabling for each room.  


We used an onsite recycling process to grind up and recycle as much material as we could to meet the Silver LEED requirements on which this design was based.  


 This project was part of a MATOC issued by the Savanah CORP which included the renovation of one barracks building, one dining facility, one battalion headquarters and the 15th Signal brigade headquarters, with a total cost of $17,084,000 for the four buildings.  The construction cost for the barracks renovation was a little over $12 million.

Ft Gordon Base Dining Hall Renovation

The dining hall serving the 15th and 35th Signal Battalions was renovated as part of the original $17,080,000.00 MATOC.  


This dining hall had been idle for a number of years and needed a complete renovation of its HVAC, plumbing, and electrical systems.


Demolition for this project included all plumbing, HVAC, electrical, kitchen equipment and restrooms.


The renovation was to increase seating capacity,  increase the capacity of the kitchen to produce more meals in a shorter time, with special emphasis on the noon take out meal service which base management wanted increased to serve an additional 150 meals in less than 1.5 hours.  


Basically the building was gutted with new flooring, ceilings, lighting, and new  blast proof./shatter proof exterior windows, and doors to meet base and Homeland Security requirements.  


Construction costs for this project was $1,575,000.00
