ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md. -- U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command leaders announced the next phase of employee moves Jan. 10.
RDECOM Chief of Staff Col. John Kilgallon hosted a town hall meeting at the Edgewood Area Conference Center to discuss the workforce migration from the Edgewood area to the command headquarters area on APG-North.
The move impacts command employees from human resources; information management; resource management; and facilities, logistics and environmental. These elements will relocate to Building 3072 on Aberdeen Boulevard starting Feb. 15.
Carl Boquist, RDECOM facilities and logistics director, said renovations to the building included painting, new carpeting, bathrooms renovations, asbestos removal, mold remediation and upgrades to the electrical and information technology systems.
RDECOM historian Jeff Smart said Buildings 3071, 3072 and 3073, also known as the "Stones," formerly housed the U.S. Army Ordnance Center and Schools for 41 years. The Army completed construction Jan. 15, 1941, and the buildings were used to train 75,000 Soldiers during World War II.
RDECOM employees already occupy Building 3071 and will begin moving into Building 3073 in May.
