A Houston-based construction company has been awarded a $41.5 million government contract to build an armed forces training and vehicle maintenance facility on 60 acres at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.

Satterfield & Pontikes Construction Inc., which also has offices in Austin, will build the Armed Forces Reserve Center and Joint Vehicle Maintenance Facility, which will serve as a home base for Central Texas members of the Texas Army National Guard, the Army Reserve and the Marine Corps Reserve.

About 1,200 members of the military will use the facility, said Lt. Col. Richard Jordan, acting construction and facilities management officer for the Texas Army National Guard.

The project, which is scheduled to begin Monday and take about 18 months to complete, includes a 209,000-square-foot building with classrooms, assembly halls, a commercial kitchen and storage, including arms vaults.
