Military families serving at Fort Rucker will soon be moving into newly renovated homes on base. Made possible by the Military Housing Privatization Initiative (MHPI), Corvias recently completed major renovations to 108 on-base homes as part of their large-scale initiative to advance energy savings within U.S. Army portfolio communities.
WSFA 12 News reports how the investments in privatized military housing improved aging infrastructure by modernizing neighborhood homes built in the 1950s:
“As part of its Rucker Communities military housing partnership with the U.S. Army, Corvias, has completed the renovations of 108 homes at Fort Rucker, Ala., home to the U.S. Army Aviation Center of Excellence with an on-post population of more than 24,000 people, including service members and family.
“We understand how to solve the challenges of aging and outdated infrastructure, and we are committed to improving military housing,” said Peter Sims, Managing Director for Corvias. “This recent completion of 108 homes in the Munson Heights neighborhood takes homes built in 1950s and modernizes them with quality materials and aesthetics for service members and families.”
Duplex homes that are part of the Munson Heights neighborhood received major renovations to reflect a more contemporary, open floor plan. Updates included front and back porches, dedicated laundry rooms, new flooring, roofing, windows, gables, driveways, landscaping, exterior siding, and more efficient air conditioning units.
… In total, Corvias, a long-term solutions and management partner to the U.S. military, has completed upgrades to 1,350 homes as part of its multi-year, multi-installation to improve and reinvest in on-post communities.
The completion of this project at Fort Rucker is part of a larger scale initiative to advance energy savings within Corvias-U.S. Army communities that is estimated to yield $240M in future utility savings over 30 years across its installations and support the Department of Defense’s energy resiliency goals.
