Hundred of new homes will be constructed in Beale Air Force Base, U.S Air Force base, which is located about 8 miles of Marysville, California. The new homes, according to a report, are the answer for the growing demand for housing in Beale, which will cater to its expanded and new missions. According to Beale’s housing manager, Lisa Mata, the housing development project capped a nine-year effort.
Other recent examples of new home construction is the housing project in Kansas, where homes has been built to cater for the high demand of affordable homes because of the growing numbers of low-income families in the area. The construction of the new homes has been funded a housing grant from the city of Lawrence.
Beal has chosen Balfour Beatty Communities, the provider of housing units in Travis Air Force Base at Fairfield, as the developer of the new homes.
About 331 new homes will be built by Balfour Beatty, as well as maintaining the existing 178 homes in the area.
Mata said the new homes will a safe and accessible haven for their airmen, and “they” will be constructing the homes faster than traditional military construction.
The homes will be built according to Air-force standard of a minimum 1,330 square feet and 2,920 square feet, and will have two to four bedrooms.
Beal has expected hundreds of additional airmen for the next few years, and the number of new homes in the base could increase, depending on the expansion of the base’s missions.
Balfour Beatty has been formally chosen for the housing development, but it ranked the highest among those Mata and Gwen Vergara from Booz Allen Hamilton, has studied.
Formal announcements regarding the new homes project at Beal will be announced later this year.
