Published Dec. 5, 2022

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District awarded a $18.54 million construction contract October 31 to Cox Construction of Vista to renovate a dormitory at Travis Air Force Base, California. The contract includes an approximately 8-month design stage, with renovations anticipated to begin in the second half of 2023 and be complete by summer 2024.

"Our effort to improve quality of life for Airmen and our joint partners is vital to the Team Travis mission," said U.S. Air Force Col. Elizabeth Aptekar, 60th Mission Support Group commander. "These renovations reflect our commitment to providing excellent living quarters for our most valued asset."

The renovations will include full interior repair of Building 1332, a three-story, 2,334 square-meter Dormitory, including the replacement of electric, fire protection, HVAC system, plumbing, ceilings, walls, floor finishes, interior doors, lighting and electrical fixtures, partitions, and plumbing fixtures.  Configuration of the dorm is to remain as is, 2+2 configuration.  This project will extend the useful life of Building 1332 for usage as an enlisted barracks at the base where nearly 7,000 active-duty Airmen are stationed.

Dormitory Building 1332, with 75 total sleeping rooms, was originally built in 1954. The building includes resident storage rooms, laundry areas, commons areas with kitchen, and study and lounge areas for an improved quality of life for the enlisted Airmen.
