DPW began renovation of four buildings encompassing the battalion’s headquarters, building 2350; motorpool, building 2792; and two SSA facilities, buildings 2157 and 2077; in October 2022. The remodel of the 1970s-era buildings includes replacing worn flooring, wall coverings, ceiling materials, expanded telecommunication capabilities and the installation of energy-efficient lighting. DPW projects also include streamlining building floorplans to allow for more functional space. The close to $2 million remodel of the facilities is slated for completion in March 2024.
