Ft. Benning Reception Center
and Construction Cost
New: 200,000 GSF; Renovation: 100,000
GSF and $49 million
Sherlock, Smith & Adams designed a new
Reception Station and Processing Center for the 30th AG Battalion to
accommodate the reception of new Initial Entry Training (IET) soldiers for
in-processing through administrative procedures, physical and mental screening,
and their preparation for training units. The U. S. Army determined that the
new Reception Station and Processing Center is needed for the operation and
support of the expanded mission of the 30th AG Battalion, the growth
in personnel, and the insufficient space in the current facility.
Internal departments and functions included
the Command Section, S-1, S-3, S-4, Intake Waiting and Briefing Assembly,
Formal Assembly, Personal Affairs, Finance, Banking, Computer Section, LNO,
Sick Call, Immunization, Hearing, Optometry, Dental, CMHS, Chaplain, Photo –
ID, Barbershop, Clothing Issue, and a Warehouse.
Separate buildings and other works that are
a part of the Reception Station and Processing Center Phase One include the new
Reception Station, a Warehouse/Lawn Equipment Storage Building, and a 400 meter
running track. Other site work included in this project is the associated
paved parking and drives, building pad preparation for a future Dining Hall,
and a future Community Building.
