About This Project:
Originally constructed in 1961, MacArthur Barracks was named in honor of General of the Army Douglas MacArthur—a West Point graduate in 1903, former superintendent of the U.S. Military Academy (1919-22), General of the Army during World War II, and a recipient of the U.S. Medal of Honor.
The modernization of the six-story MacArthur Barracks was necessary to meet current Army standards and to correct deficiencies such as overcrowding and deterioration. The overall project included building envelope rehabilitation, roof replacement, exterior stone façade repairs, and new antiterrorism/force protection compliant windows. In addition, new heating, ventilation, air conditioning, electrical, and plumbing systems were added to achieve energy reduction and conservation. Additionally, the interior was completely renovated including the cadet rooms, new laundry facilities, and new common areas as well as site improvements.
All federal projects require increased attention to detail to ensure that all rules and regulations are met. We excel at providing this level of service to our clients on all projects but those skills especially shine at the federal level.
