To renovate more than 100 homes at Fort Rucker, Corvias worked with local subtractors to deliver state-of-the-art updates to duplexes built in the late 1950’s. The renovations, which involved gutting the homes down to the studs, included updated floor plans, energy efficient systems, and new air conditioning units. More from Corvias:
Corvias has begun delivery of more than 100 renovated homes in the Munson neighborhood at Fort Rucker as part of its $325 million capital investment to fund improvements to the company’s entire Army housing portfolio.
…The renovated homes, all duplexes originally built in the late 1950s, received state-of-the-art updates to modernize the layout and refresh the look and feel of the homes. The cabinets, lighting, fixtures and appliances used are unique to the renovations at Fort Rucker. Renovations and updates include:
- Updated floor plans
- Energy efficient systems
- New front and back porch
- New windows, roofs and gables
- Installation of upgraded interior materials like luxury vinyl plank flooring
- Widened driveways, refreshed landscaping and improved exterior siding
- More efficient air conditioning units, new sealant and insulation
To complete this project, Corvias’ construction and design teams worked together to design and build homes that are both functional and stylish with materials that are easy for residents to maintain. To help support the local economy, Corvias worked with local vendors with nearly 30 percent of the subcontractors coming from the area surrounding Fort Rucker.
“Completing the renovations during these challenging times of COVID-19 was especially important to our team as we wanted to maintain our promise to deliver great homes and improve the quality of life for our soldiers and their families,” said Chuck Cavaretta, vice president of construction, Corvias. “Construction work is considered essential at our installations and Corvias followed CDC, state and local guidelines to prioritize the safety and well-being of our employees and contractors while sustaining the local economy and small businesses. We support our military families with new, modern housing and our local business community with rewarding projects that keep their staff employed during the health crisis.”
