Today’s number is 6 million.
That’s the number of square footage that will be added to Fort Benning’s 20 million square feet of “powered” facilities when BRAC construction is complete on the Maneuver Center.
That number does not include structures and facilities, such as covered bays or parking lots, which are not designed for electricity or occupancy. And it does not include renovation projects, like the one under way on Building 4, except when additional square footage is being added.
It does include Base Realignment and Closure projects on all four of the installation’s cantonment areas — Main Post, Sand Hill, Kelley Hill and Harmony Church, where the Armor School will be located.
Though the Armor School move from Fort Knox to Fort Benning will be completed by Sept. 15, 2011, construction will continue for another five years.
