The C-17 Globemaster III Combined Program Office will be moving into a new home this fall.

Renovations inside the northeast corner of Bldg. 660, site of the former commissary, have been ongoing since January. The move will co-locate more than 200 C-17 personnel and include a central setting for government, Boeing and foreign military sales team members.

"The facility will accommodate 24/7 C-17 MICAP control center operations, and allow synergistic teamwork of government, industry, and FMS sustainers," said Col. David Morgan, C-17 Globemaster Division chief. "The entire C-17 team is very grateful for the hard work all of Team Robins provided. Their contributions will have a tremendous impact on C-17 sustainment and indirectly improve the Air Force's overall airlift capability."

The renovated workspace includes 35,000 square feet of accommodations, with room for four-person cubicles, offices, break rooms, secure communication rooms and a command suite, all working under one umbrella.

The program office is currently located in Buildings 300 and 301.

Ceilings were lowered as part of the renovation, along with the removal of a few walls, and the installation of new carpet, lighting, fire alarms, HVAC systems and doors. Work inside is nearly complete. All that remains is ordering furniture and installing cabling and office equipment.

Parking has been added and elevator access is available.

Base plans include renovating additional space in the building at a later date.
