The Fort Campbell Warriors in Transition Barracks facility project has recently been awarded two national level awards.
The Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc. (ABC) selected the project for the 2011 National Excellence in Construction, Award of Excellence, National Eagle Award. The project excelled in award categories including safety, quality, customer satisfaction, schedule, teamwork and innovation.
The project was also selected for the ABC National Design/Build Excellence Award by the Design Build Institute of America (DBIA).
The $24.6 million barracks facility houses 206 Soldiers and provides them with a place to focus on recovery and smoothly return to duty or civilian life.
Located adjacent to the Soldier Family Assistance Center and in the vicinity of Blanchfield Army Community Hospital, the facility houses soldiers who are recovering from injuries sustained in performance of their duties.
“We have completed a special project for a very deserving customer,” said John Reed, Senior Project Engineer at Fort Campbell. “We’ve provided them with a quality facility that hopefully gives them a space to heal.”
The facility grounds are picturesque and include a healing garden and wheelchair obstacle course.
The four-story facility was designed and constructed by Clark/Caddell, a Joint Venture. It includes 51 two-bedroom two-bath suites and 52 two-bedroom one-bath suites. There are 26 ADA compliant suites with the remaining being ADA adaptable.
“The project was successful because of the dedicated efforts of many individuals and the synergetic teamwork of the joint venture Clark Caddell, the Louisville District Planning, Program and Project Management Team and the Louisville District Construction Division, Fort Campbell Resident Office staff,” said Bryan Moser, Fort Campbell Senior Resident Engineer.
