Fort Riley - Building 223

Built in 1889, this two-story structure, along with its twin, Building 211, holds profound historical significance within the Main Post Historic District, duly recognized through its inclusion in the National Register of Historic Places since 1974.

As such, central to this undertaking was the restoration of Building 223’s historic essence. The renovation blueprint began with the meticulous repair of the antiquated wooden windows. The exterior rejuvenation required limestone masonry patching, repointing, concrete spall repairs, and akin rehabilitative measures.

The overarching goal of this project was to seamlessly blend modernization with the preservation of heritage. The selected Design-Build (DB) Firm executed a Firm-Fixed-Price (FFP) contract to meticulously restore and enhance Building 223. This endeavor necessitated a holistic overhaul of all systems, encompassing mechanical, electrical, communications, security, fire, and life safety. The architectural blueprint also mandated a skillful gutting and spatial reconfiguration, aligning with contemporary barracks standards (4 plus 2) tailored for occupants ranked E-1s through E-5s.

This multifaceted restoration culminated in a harmony of heritage and innovation, ensuring Building 223 continues to stand proudly while serving the needs of the present and the aspirations of the future.
