New Army TRADOC Band Training facility.

According to information available from the US Army Corps of EngineersĀ® Norfolk District, they awarded a contract to Tompkins Builders Inc. of Washington, D.C., March 26th, to design and construct the new Headquarters, U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command and the TRADOC Band Training facility at Fort Eustis, Virginia. The $78 million design-build military construction project, managed by Norfolk District, has a projected completion date of February 2011. The project is part of the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure authorization, which closes Fort Monroe, Virginia, in September 2011, and realigns the TRADOC headquarters from Monroe to Fort Eustis.

Work includes command suites, private offices, a special compartmented information facility, a special access programs facility, an emergency operations center, break rooms and kitchenettes, printing and copying areas, conference rooms and an auditorium. Work also includes associated support facilities and site improvements.

The project will be designed to meet the Army Standards for Echelons above Brigade Command and Control Facilities, prescribed security standards, as well as meet the Army’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design or LEED certification. A groundbreaking ceremony is set for June.
