Maj. Gen. Leslie J. Carroll, chief of staff, U.S. Army Forces Command (FORSCOM), and Neal Bullock, representing Hensel Phelps Construction Company, pose with the U.S. Green Business Council's logo and certificate, Sept. 17, 2012, during a ceremony commemorating the designation of Marshall Hall, the 631,000 sq. ft. headquarters for FORSCOM and U.S. Army Reserve Command at Fort Bragg, N.C., as a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) "Gold" certified facility. To achieve LEED standards for new construction, projects are evaluated in six sustainability areas: water, material, site, energy, air and savings. All new federal construction projects are required to meet, at a minimum, LEED "Silver" standards. The work and cooperation by the Army/Industry project team (Hensel Phelps Construction Co., Fentress Architects, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Fort Bragg Installation, FORSCOM and USARC Headquarters) in reaching Gold certification for Marshall Hall is indicative of the atmosphere and effort surrounding the more than three and a half years of construction, completed in June 2011.
