Construction is currently underway, with an expected completion date of November 2012.

Ted G. Fery, VOA partner, Southern Region, says all buildings included in the renovation incorporate “green” strategies using sustainable techniques and materials to qualify for LEED Silver.

The renovation of the barracks and central energy plants will serve an additional 62 buildings at the Fort Polk military installation and will range in size from 28,060 to 47,820 sq ft.

When completed, the barracks will provide 976 single soldier apartments with private baths and kitchens. Total gross square footage for the project is 600,000 sq ft.
