SAN ANTONIO - Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston is now home to a new 116,480-sf modular building on the Army post that will house combat troops. The $9.7 million four-story building has 272 rooms.

The fifth and final phase of the MILCON Unaccompanied Enlisted Personnel Housing (UEPH) Advanced Individual Training (AIT) Barracks is now completed and ready for occupancy. The Army expects to occupy the building by the end of March.

Because the barracks facility houses combat troops, the structure had to be built to meet the Army’s anti-terrorism force protection construction standards.
