Abstract : This report presents results of the monitorship of the construction and design of a demonstration project of industrialized building applied to Department of the Army construction requirements. The project was a 250-man bachelor officers' quarters (BOQ) at Fort Knox, KY, constructed by FCE-Dillon, Akron, OH, using their system of precast concrete panels and three-dimensional kitchen/bath modules. The experiences in design and production, one-step procurement, construction, and contract administration at Fort Knox are analyzed, and the cost per man housed is compared for BOQs in the FY 73 MCA program.
