Robins & Morton completes Army Engineering and Support Center at Redstone Gateway

HUNTSVILLE – The Army has engineered a move, of sorts, to its presence in the Rocket City.

Joining the ranks of an ever-expanding Redstone Gateway, the Army Engineering and Support Center, Huntsville, recently opened its headquarters in the development at Gate 9 of Redstone Arsenal.

The three-story building on Secured Gateway features 200,000 square feet of Class A office space and a 15,000-square-foot warehouse constructed with concrete tilt wall panels, according to Robins & Morton, a Birmingham-based construction firm with an office in Huntsville. The facility enables the Huntsville office of the Corps to consolidate its workforce in one location, a news release said.

“We are grateful for our longstanding partnership with COPT Defense Properties and the opportunity to build this project that will serve the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers,” Senior Superintendent Brendan Kenny said. “It’s been exciting to support the growth of Redstone Gateway since 2010, and we look forward to its continued growth in the future.”

The building will serve as a central conference and nationwide collaboration hub. The facility includes a combination of private and open office areas, collaborative spaces, a large training room — which can be divided into four separate rooms — a dining area, fitness center, and conference room for the commander.

The project is the fifth multi-story tilt-wall building constructed by Robins & Morton in the office park since 2020, the company said. It is also pursuing LEED certification.

Robins & Morton was the general contractor and Nola Van Peursem Architects was the architect.
