An interior renovation project at building 2187 has created more-functional, consolidated workspace for the Fort McCoy Civilian Personnel Advisory Center (CPAC).

The project was done in response to mission growth and staffing increases resulting from 2005 Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) actions, said CPAC Director Karen Kohn.

Kohn said the renovations created a more- efficient use of space within the building and consolidated all Fort McCoy CPAC staff in one location.

CPAC also has employees at Rock Island, Ill., and at the Human Resources Command at St. Louis to support an increased Army Reserve and Human Resources BRAC mission.

“The increased staffing is good for us, and for the installation,” Kohn said. “It indicates we’re more likely to stay here.”

The projects included adding partition walls, creating additional offices, removing an old metal door and installing data lines.

Kohn said many CPAC employees spent much of the month of December in the 88th Regional Support Command facility while renovation work was done at building 2187.

“We were greatly appreciative the 88th Command Group allowed us to use space in their facility while the renovation work was being done,” Kohn said.

The project is winding down, Kohn said.

Among the work left to complete is painting, she said. The renovation project also includes new, more-functional office furniture.

The project did not affect the other organizations located in the facility, such as Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation offices, including the Military ID Card Section, the Equal Employment Opportunity Office, the Equal Opportunity adviser, etc.
