Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at DE Army National Guard’s Field Maintenance Shop

Posted in: News on July 24, 2018

Wohlsen Construction Company and the Delaware Army National Guard celebrated the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for the new, state-of-the-art Field Maintenance Shop on Friday, July 13th, in Dagsboro, DE.

Designed by STV Inc., the 16,400-square-foot maintenance shop will house vehicle maintenance services and on-the-job-training. Equipped with oversized work bays and overhead cranes, training areas, offices, and locker rooms, the facility provides guardsmen and guardswomen with a one-stop facility that enhances their ability to respond to situations and improves readiness.

“It’s good for the Citizen Soldiers that they have a brand-new building to work out of,” said adjutant general Maj. Gen. Carol Timmons. “They now have a great place to work, and a great shop to train and learn their skills.”

The Field Maintenance Shop can also serve as a relief station for residents of Sussex County during snowstorms, flood, hurricanes, or other disasters.

This design/build project was designed and constructed to achieve LEED Silver, and utilizes several sustainable features including geothermal wells and a new underground stormwater management system.
