Workers continue renovation inside an H-frame barracks building on Fort Hood, Jan. 11.

$300 million in renovations/construction on-going


Nearly $300 million in ongoing construction projects are improving quality of life and readiness at Fort Hood.

Renovated barracks, construction of a new Mission Training Center and a renovated and upgraded 1st Cavalry Division Headquarters top the list of a dozen ongoing projects.

"Fort Hood is one of the Army's most important installations," Brian Dosa, Fort Hood director of Public Works, said. "About one out of every 10 Soldiers in the Army is serving at Fort Hood, so Fort Hood exists to train our Soldiers to go fight our nation's wars."

The Directorate of Public Works is responsible for maintaining all of the 8,000 buildings and facilities on Fort Hood.

With that troop population and the importance of the Soldiers' missions, Dosa said it is important to provide the best the Army has to offer to those troops.

"It's all about readiness," Dosa said, "so as we look at our facilities and infrastructure at Fort Hood, we know we have some shortcomings to support that readiness."
