ABSTRACT
The article discusses the booming construction in U.S. Army installations, with $40 billion being invested in the military construction program for facilities like barracks, company operations centers, battalion headquarters, and child-development and fitness centers. It adds that these new facilities are being designed and constructed to be environmentally friendly and that all new climate-controlled facilities are required to be certifiable under the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) silver rating.
