Video: TRADOC Opens New Advanced HQ in Newport News
B-roll of the Army Training and Doctrine Command's Newport News home. The recently completed 263,676-square-foot facility brings the command officially from historic Fort Monroe, to Joint Base Langley-Eustis in Newport News Virginia, where workers will be leaving behind beautiful views for a modern and technologically advanced office building. Packed with the latest in telecommunications, audio visual and secure systems technology the headquarters building combines the command into one building versus the 27 buildings they are spread out in at Fort Monroe. Not only is the building technologically advanced in its systems, it also has advanced technology incorporated into its design to make it energy efficient. The building also includes extra insulation, energy efficient window coatings, and a white roof helping it to achieve a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Silver rating. Construction of the $95 million facility was overseen by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers who worked closely with its client, TRADOC, to make sure the building met the needs in helping to advance the command’s mission and goals.
