Marines Goin Green

New green barracks nears completion

2/10/2011 - Editor’s note: This is the fifth article of an eight-part series on Inside Installation and Environment Division.

Single Marines at Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany will soon be able to move into their newly-constructed barracks. A groundbreaking ceremony was held Oct. 28, 2009, and the project is nearing completion with the ribbon cutting ceremony scheduled for March 15.

The Marine Corps is committed to providing a quality standard of life for the single Marines, just as they are for the married ones.

“The new barracks will provide a professional environment for the Marines to come back to at the end of the day,” said Randall Kennedy, bachelor and transient billeting manager, Installation and Environment Division, MCLB Albany. “This facility will improve overall morale and help them focus on mission accomplishment.”

According to base officials, the $14.7 million BEQ replaces barracks built in the 1950s. The new facility was designed by the contractor from the start as an example of the smart, effective use of designs, materials and processes. {continued}
