CBG Building Company Celebrates Phase One Completion of Nevada Military Community
Ribbon Cutting Commemorates Construction Milestone at Naval Air Station Fallon
For immediate release
August 15, 2018
"These are beautiful, modern homes," said NAS Fallon Commanding Officer Captain David Halloran. "[This is] a much-needed improvement to our housing, and it will have a direct positive impact on the quality of life for our sailors and their families."
CBG introduced interconnected walkways, communal shade structures, and shared amenities like a dog park and splash pad to make NAS Fallon more community-oriented. NAS Fallon's harsh weather conditions and remote location presented unique construction challenges, which CBG overcame with minimal impact to residents. The team split the project into several phases, incorporated weather-resistant materials, and built temporary roads for ingress and egress to minimize disruption to the residents.
"We are pleased to celebrate the completion of these homes and amenities at NAS Fallon," said Jim Forburger, senior vice president of CBG Building Company. "Before construction, a lack of climate-friendly activities meant that residents weren't fully able to utilize the community. Our main goal was to build the best housing and amenities for residents and their children, to help them engage with each other and enjoy the outdoors."
In partnership with the Navy and Clark Realty Capital, the multi-million dollar project began in April 2016 and involves the construction of 139 new houses and renovation of 80 existing houses along with infrastructure upgrades and new site amenities. Construction will be completed in multiple phases to maintain pedestrian access to sidewalks and avoid displacing military families. The first phase of work included the demolition of 62 units, construction of 60 new units, and the removal and replacement of surrounding roads and infrastructure. The full buildout will benefit more than 200 military families.
