New Army command at Fort Gordon means more jobs and more homes!

Categories: News | Posted: March 11, 2014

The US Army Cyber Command announced in December that they will consolidate their operations into a new 179,000-sq ft facility at Fort Gordon. This will be a huge bonus for Augusta, as it will bring an estimated 1,500 military, civilian and contractor personnel to East Georgia. At the moment, Fort Gordon generates a regional economic impact of $1.4 billion annually.

Ivey Homes is among those thrilled at the opportunity this presents for Augusta. As Ivey Homes’ Matt Ivey observed, “With so many people coming into the region, there will be a definite need for additional housing. And we look forward to being able to provide our new residents with homes they’ll love.”

Ivey Homes is known for its excellent quality, IveyWise homes. IveyWise, developed exclusively by Ivey Homes, includes features and benefits that ensure each new home is on the cutting edge of efficiency, affordability and convenience, while employing the most progressive construction techniques. Ivey Homes has received many awards for its customer service and Energy Star-certified homes.

Other information of note:

  • The Army Cyber Command currently has about 500 employees temporarily housed among seven government buildings and leased space across the Washington, D.C. area.
  • U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., a leading advocate of Fort Gordon, worked closely with senior leaders of the Army and the Cyber Command to relocate the network’s headquarters to Augusta before his retirement this year.

It’s one thing for us to brag on how energy efficient our IveyWise homes are, and how much money they’ll save you.  It’s another thing for you to hear it straight from an actual homeowner.  One of our homeowners, Jim Mayfield, has provided us with the average of his power bills since he moved into his new Ivey home in July, 2012.

Average gas bill – $47.67

Average electric bill – $131.87

And, Jim notes, “As our home is about 7,000 square feet of climate controlled living space, I think you guys did a remarkable job on building and insulating this LEED certified home. “

The exclusive IveyWise program includes features and benefits that ensure that every new home we build is on the cutting edge of efficiency, affordability and convenience, while employing the most progressive construction techniques.

From insulation to roof sheathing, advanced framing to programmable thermostats, IveyWise homes includes features and construction techniques that go over and above what the ICC prescribes in the International Building Code for new construction. Plus, IveyWise homes include low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) paint, carpet and hardwood floor glue, which make them healthier in addition to being energy efficient.

Other builders may offer a handful of features that we have included in IveyWise, but Ivey Homes was the first builder in the Augusta area to go 100% ENERGY STAR and is one of a select few that still build 100% ENERGY STAR. In addition, we’ve worked many years to balance the many green choices available between costs and payback. We think we’ve got the mix right.
