A youth activities center built with $7.5 million in Recovery funds is nearing completion at Hunter Army Airfield, at Fort Stewart, Georgia.

The shell and exterior of the facility were finished in June; since then, workers have been concentrating on the interior, particularly the framing and painting in addition to installation of the tile flooring, carpet, electrical wiring, ductwork, and doors.

The center will offer a range of physical, educational, and social activities, both indoor and outdoor for up to 135 children, ages 11 to 18.  The facility includes a fully equipped gym as well as offices for counseling.

Tampa-based J2 Engineering Inc. is the prime contractor.
