Ground broken on new cyber campus at Fort Gordon
The post held a ceremony Wednesday to de-memorialize Greely Hall, which will be demolished. A cyber training center will be built in its place.
The first building to be taken down for Fort Gordon’s new Cyber Center of Excellence was de-memorialized Wednesday in preparation for demolition.
For the cyber campus, four new buildings will be constructed, seven will be restored and brought up to more modern standards and 12 will be demolished.
Maj. Gen. John B. Morrison, commander of the Cyber Center of Excellence and Fort Gordon, said all buildings on the campus should be completed by 2027, but the first building on the new campus will likely be occupied in 2022. He said the campus is part of a $1 billion investment by the Army.
“This is absolutely an exciting day, because when these facilities are complete it’s going to be world class training facilities for the world’s best operators,” Morrison said.
