U.S. Army Uses Modular Buildings for Traumatic Brain Injury Clinic

By March 4, 2014Blog

Fort Hood, Texas – 1.7 Million. That’s the amount of traumatic brain injuries that occur yearly in the United States according to the CDC.  Within our U.S. Military [1], exposures to blasts are the leading cause of TBI’s.  Military service members are more likely to commit suicide if they have suffered more than one traumatic brain injury experience. The problem has dramatically increased that the Army has had to expand their clinics at posts worldwide. Fort Hood, one of the largest military bases in the world, called on Icon Construction to help them build their third TBI clinic.

The facility is approximately 4,900 sq. feet. The modular building includes driving and shooting simulation rooms. Because Icon Construction is a small business, it allowed them to be involved from start to finish. From concept to final completion, they made sure that every task was completed accurately with the end result always in mind.
