Cyber Center Europe construction continues
Construction progress continues on 5th Signal Command’s 59,000-square-foot Cyber Center Europe located on Clay Kaserne in Wiesbaden, Germany June 19, 2013. The facility, scheduled to be complete in summer 2014, will feature 200 workstations, a detached parking structure and many sustainable design elements. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Europe District, in partnership with the German construction agency, is managing the project, which broke ground in June 2012. The Cyber Center will capitalize on the use of natural light, thus minimizing the need for florescent lighting. It will also include low flow, water-saving plumbing, using 40 percent less water than a comparably sized building and saving more than 200,000 gallons of water annually. It is on track to be the second U.S. Green Building Council LEED Silver certified facility on Clay Kaserne – U.S. Army Europe’s headquarters building was the first. The center, recently dedicated to Lt. Gen. Robert E. Gray, a distinguished signal officer, will consolidate several key organization under one roof.
