Recent renovations completed by Corvias at Fort Meade exemplify the commitment of Military Housing Privatization Initiative (MHPI) partners to provide high-quality housing to military members and their families.
Corvias, which manages military family housing at Fort Meade, recently completed renovations of 18 homes in the Potomac and Patriot Ridge neighborhoods on-post. The project included upgraded flooring, bathrooms, kitchen counters and cabinets, and energy efficiency upgrades.
“As a partner of choice for more than 20 years, we are fully invested in providing quality homes to service members and families that live across our military housing communities,” said Pete Sims, Corvias’ DOD Managing Director. “Modernized units and successful housing management and operations is often a top criterion for people considering joining branches of service. Not only do these upgrades support the Army’s recruitment, readiness, and resiliency goals, but they also reflect resident feedback and ensure access to affordable, convenient, and desirable housing options.”
According to Dan K. McNeill, retired Four-Star General, Infantry, U.S. Army, about his overall experience working with Corvias:
“I admit that I had profound doubts about the probability of success. However, believe me, the results were wildly beyond any of my expectations. What I learned was Corvias had not only the motivation to care for our Army families, but they also exhibited strong expertise in business processes, planning, and management. Their experience and approach enabled them to meet or exceed the goals and aims of the partnership as well as the expectations of Army families.”
The renovated homes have proven to be popular and are being leased by active-duty service members within 10 days. Meanwhile, Corvias is continuing to work with the Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army (DASA, U.S. Army Installation Management Command (IMCOM), and installation command at Fort Meade to develop future improvements.
