Corvias and the Fort Rucker housing office have “improved key processes and hired additional people to enhance the on-post living experience” at Fort Rucker, according to the U.S. Army.
Over the past two years, Corvias has spent more than $19 million to improve housing at the installation. These efforts include the hiring of twelve additional maintenance technicians, the major renovation and modernization of over 100 original 1950s duplex homes, and heating, ventilation and air conditioning duct replacements in more than 500 homes.
Later this year, Corvias will roll out an Energy Consumption Project for all housing on base. This project will allow for homes to receive new LED light bulbs, smart thermostats, and other energy and water-efficient appliances. Homes will also receive new energy-efficient HVAC systems and weather-proofing.
“We’ve made great strides in improving Fort Rucker housing, but we’re not through,” said Col. Whitney B. Gardner, Fort Rucker garrison commander. “The Army housing and Corvias teams at Fort Rucker are committed to providing the best possible housing experience for Soldiers and families, and we’re constantly looking for ways to do better. We value the feedback we get from the people who call Fort Rucker home. Tell us what we’re doing right, tell us what we’re doing wrong – we want to know what you think.”
Melissa Bryson, Corvias Fort Rucker operations director, said the collaboration between Corvias and the local army housing office and command at Fort Rucker is particularly strong. “We regularly discuss resident housing issues and concerns, and approach solutions together,” she remarked.
