Soldiers participate in a ribbon-cutting and dedication ceremony to praise the completion of five new high-tech buildings, all part of the new Army Ordnance Center campus at Fort Lee, Va. The five new buildings were also memorialized during the ceremony in honor of five distinguished Ordnance Corps veterans. Norfolk District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, provided the design and construction management and its engineering branch developed the request for proposals that defined the general design-build requirements for constructing the facilities. The $800 million, five-building complex, is part of Fort Lee’s $1.2 billion construction program under the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure authorization. Under BRAC, the Army Ordnance Center and School relocated from Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland to Fort Lee.
