This housing privatization project includes design/build, finance, operations and maintenance for on-base housing. RIM was responsible for the design of 16 Senior Officer Quarters on existing foundations and one accessible Senior Officer Quarter on a brand new foundation. Each housing unit is a single family home and has been designed to encompass a 2-story structure containing 4-bedrooms, 2.5 baths and a full basement. Additionally, RIM was responsible for renovating 252 JNCO three and four-bedroom units in six different neighborhoods. These units are contained within duplex and four-plex buildings. There are 11 differing unit plans with a variety of changes. The changes include converting 4-bedroom units to 3-bedroom units, adding laundry rooms, arctic entries and exterior storage where it did not exist before, minor structural improvements as well as small recreation room additions. The Privatization also includes the JBER Community Plaza Building. This building combines the warehouse, office and community center space for the new housing in JBER.
