Background:

1. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District is tasked with building three new general instruction buildings at the Presidio of Monterey for the Defense Language Institute.
2. The buildings will provide classroom space and facilities for military students learning foreign languages.
3. Thus far, one building has been completed on time and under budget, for $28 million. It features the following amenities:

a. Extensive use of passive solar energy, with skylights in classrooms and stairwells.
b. Entryway on the second floor - necessary because the building was sunk into a hillside so as not to overwhelm nearby neighbors who live adjacent to the Presidio. The first floor of the building is actually below street level.
c. A sheltered courtyard that protects students from inclement weather but still allows them to congregate outside during breaks.
d. The inventive use of soil-nail walls to stabilize the hillsides on three sides of the building.

Current Work:

1. General instruction building, FY 09: this building will be smaller than the completed general instruction building. Its estimated cost is $15 million and estimated completion date is January 2012. Initial site preparation work has already begun on this project.
2. General instruction building, FY11: this building, currently in the planning phases, has an estimated cost of $39 million and an estimated completion date of September 2013.

Conclusions:

1. These buildings provide the resources to members of the armed forces to effectively support Overseas Contingency Operations.
2. The buildings will also provide additional security for the Commandant of the Defense Language Institute, by allowing all of his assets to be located at the Presidio of Monterey.
