The Maintenance and Maneuver Center was the result of 2005 BRAC decision to merge the home of the Infantry with the home of the Armory together at Ft Benning, GA. This building houses these teams together to improve communication and education for battlefield strategies. Building 4 was a renovation and was broken into 3 phases which began in 2008 and will be completed in early 2012.
This is a very large cast stone project that required approximately 6700 large pieces of cast stone with an average weight of 500 lbs each. The entire building has three rows of cast stone base panels expanding up 6 feet all the way around the building. Integrated with the brick above the base panels are a series of other cast stone bands with structural archways above the windows, openings and front entry.
