JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas --
A formal ribbon-cutting ceremony was held here May 23 by Air Force Personnel Center leadership to officially commemorate the completion of demolition and subsequent restoration of the area formerly housing Building 499-B.
The $11.6 million project is the culmination of several years’ worth of effort.
Building 499-B was built in 1968 as a large main-frame computer facility. In 1985, the building was repurposed to house administrative activities, developmental teams and other personnel programs. Additionally, it was the first home of the Total Force Service Center and to the team members who managed the myPers website.
It took two years and 10 months to completely tear down the former structure and reroute associated utility infrastructure for inter-connected facilities – a project that involved two general contractors, 32 subcontractors, and more than 71,000 man hours throughout three phases.
“This project provides an overall improvement to quality of life for AFPC team members,” said Kathy Weaver, Chief of Facilities and Engineering at AFPC. “It is just one more way this organization continues to embody its mission to take care of Airmen.”
