Corvias’ major revamping of military housing will produce significant impacts at Fort Rucker, including the major renovation of about 100 homes in Munson Heights.
Corvias, which manages military housing at 13 different installations, announced Thursday that some partnerships will lead to a $325 million investment in housing improvements at six Army posts. The program essentially creates a major initiative to improve energy efficiency, which is expected to save $300 million during the next 30 years.
While officials have not determined the final economic investment in Fort Rucker, they have identified a large scope of the work needed at the Wiregrass installation, said Melissa Bryson, Corvias’ Fort Rucker operations director. Crews will conduct major renovations and lead-based paint removal on about 100 homes that were built in the 1950s in the Munson community, while another 550 homes in the Allen Heights area will receive major heating, ventilation, and air conditioning improvements, including energy-efficient units and duct work modifications. Officials have also authorized weatherproofing upgrades like weather stripping and sealing at the Allen Heights homes.
