Air Force Base Opens University Center

This week, the Little Rock Air Force Base and the City of Jacksonville, Arkansas celebrated the opening of a joint-use university center. The 46,000-square-foot facility provides classrooms and offices for six resident universities offering college-level courses to military personnel, their families, and local civilians.

“This is the opportunity for people who put their lives on the line for us—men and women who wear a uniform and go in harm’s way—to have a state-of-the-art facility and quality instruction,” said Arkansas Governor Mike Beebe. “It’s particularly important and gratifying for me to celebrate the opening of a facility that addresses some of [Arkansas'] needs in higher education.”

Garver provided project management and civil and structural design for the new education center. This project will be featured in Garver's March issue of IQ.
