Soldiers and civilians at the Army Contracting Command and Expeditionary Contracting Command headquarters are moving from their relocatable buildings on Redstone Arsenal, Ala., to temporary facilities at 106 Wynn Drive in Huntsville, Ala., as they await the completion of their permanent facilities.
According to Lt. Col. Monica Robinson, ACC interim deputy chief of staff logistics G-4, the move was approved by the Installation Management Command and funded by the Army Materiel Command.
"This move will consolidate the workforce making the two commands more efficient in operations and is an interim solution until our permanent facility, Building 4505 on Redstone Arsenal across from AMC headquarters, is complete in 2016," Robinson said.
ACC and ECC personnel will move in phases to the Wynn Drive facility with the first group arriving in September and the last group moving in November.
"This property was the best value to the government and meets the requirements of ACC and ECC," said Kevin Burleson, engineer, ACC DSC Logistics G-4. "The cost for the building changes was lower for this facility compared to other offerors and was one of the key reasons for the selection."
Burleson said the Wynn Drive facility will need some renovation but not much.
The facility has an existing command suite but will require the construction of another one as well as a small amount of wall and door relocations.
Two breakrooms will be constructed, and there will be painting and carpet replacement throughout the facility.
