A ribbon cutting ceremony was held in February for the Operational Readiness Training Complex located at Fort Hunter Liggett, California. The project was completed in March of 2017.
The project is a standard design battalion-sized Operational Readiness Training Complex, to include battalion headquarters, company operations, enlisted barracks, officer quarters, company storage sheds, and organizational vehicle parking. Soldiers will conduct weekend training at the center. Sustainable Design and Development was incorporated which included hot water generation from solar panels, energy efficient lighting, and roof designs to accommodate future photovoltaic solar panels. The barracks buildings achieved LEED Silver rating and the company operations and officer quarters buildings achieved LEED Gold rating. The Louisville District managed the design, award and construction, and the Sacramento District provided daily construction oversight and management.
“The Project Delivery Team is excited about the opportunity to provide quality facilities to assist our Soldiers in fulfilling their training missions,” said Sonia Suggs, project manager.
