Engineers save money for other units

Airmen with the 423rd Civil Engineer Squadron developed and executed an innovative plan to save money for several mission partners at RAF Molesworth.

Refitting and reopening dormitory space on RAF Alconbury enabled the 501st Combat Support Wing's mission partners to significantly reduce lodging costs for personnel assigned on temporary duty here.

"The request for contingency bed space came from the commander of [U.S. Africa Command J2-Molesworth] and eventually the [Joint Analysis Center]," said John Barr, 423rd CES deputy base civil engineer. "We had a previous facility/dorm that was deactivated several years ago so we looked at the cost of restoring the facility to living quarters that were up to Air Force standards."
