“Housing you trust: a ‘Southern Living’ Station you choose.”
The DPW Housing Division provides quality residential communities and total housing services for Soldiers, Families, and other qualified residents at Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield.
The Stewart-Hunter Housing Division is comprised of three branches: Residential Communities Initiative Branch (legislated in FY 1996), Housing Services Office Branch and Single Soldier Housing Branch. Visit the housing Web site at www.stewart.army.mil/dpw/housing/housing.asp.
The RCI Branch provides oversight to the Private Partner and ensures compliance with the general ideals of the Community Development and Management Plan and Army guidance on Privatized Housing. The program encompasses a 50-year partnership (a Limited Liability Company) between the government and a private sector partner. RCI partnerships are complex, large-scale, long-term real estate transactions that require extensive management oversight of on-going relationships between development, operations, and financial components, interactions at multiple stakeholder levels, as well as government and military process challenges. RCI asset management responsibilities are divided into four separate core oversight functions: Construction and Development, Operations and Maintenance, Financial Management, and Legal and Governance.
On Nov. 1, 2003, Balfour Beatty Communities (BBC) L.L.C. (formerly known as GMH Military Housing LLC) assumed responsibility for on-post housing at Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield. BBC manages housing and provides housing services to all on-post residents. BBC builds, maintains, renovates, leases and replaces existing homes, while providing Community Management services. They also provide additional amenities such as new playgrounds, jogging routes, walking areas, and community centers.
The Housing Services Office provides on and off- post housing services/assistance to military personnel and DoD Civilians at Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield. The Fort Stewart HSO office is located in the Soldier Service Center, building 253 at (912) 767-7852/2127. Those personnel assigned to Hunter Army Airfield may also visit the HSO office located in building 1287 at (912) 315-5327. Information on HSO services is available on the Fort Stewart Web site www.stewart.army.mil/dpw/housing/rcifsgaoffpost.asp.
The HSO office has an array of services available to help Soldiers and Families get settled into off-post housing, referred to on-post such as up-to-date rental listings, rental and sales booklets and maps of the surrounding area. Information can also be obtained on local schools, churches, shopping centers, hotels and motels. Personnel are briefed on the local area and are provided with a list of any housing currently placed on off limits. To obtain a current rental listing, visit www.ahrn.com using your AKO account information.
This office also mediates off-post housing complaints pertaining to leases, maintenance and discrimination. Personnel are cautioned not to enter into negotiations for purchase or rental of off-post housing prior to processing through the HSO office. Upon departure from Fort Stewart, you can get relocation information on your next duty station.
In June 2009, Single Soldier Housing Branch implemented the First Sergeant’s Barracks Initiative. SSH manages over 3,700 barracks rooms at Fort Stewart and over 1,500 barracks rooms at Hunter Army Airfield. SSH Provides on-post housing services for unaccompanied personnel assigned to Stewart-Hunter. The Core functions include Management and Assignment / Termination of Rooms, Monitoring Facility Sustainment, Monitoring Furnishings Management, Maintaining Customer Service and Providing Surge Capacity for Deployment / Redeployment.
SSH provides assistance to single Soldiers in the rank of sergeant and below living on-post in many ways, including room assignment and termination; submitting and tracking work order requests; maintaining inventory/condition of barracks equipment, furnishings, and appliances; and ensuring Soldiers are responsible for damaged or missing items. Also, the SSH relieves the unit commanders of the day-to-day responsibilities of barracks management by maintaining and providing a current manifest of their single Soldiers and key control for all SSH facilities.
Other SSH responsibilities include preparing barracks utilization and other reports for submission to higher headquarters. These reports are used locally to monitor the utilization of barracks buildings and to measure the impact of SSH operations on the Soldiers.
Single Soldier Housing has a major role in the barracks preparations for deployment and redeployment. The Battle Handover process directs the joint inspection of every barracks room prior to deployment and redeployment. This deployment inspection identifies the maintenance and repair that must be completed prior to occupying that barracks again upon redeployment. The redeployment ensures the barracks maintenance is complete and the rooms are ready for occupancy when the Soldiers redeploy. SSH performs mass barracks room terminations prior to deployment and mass barracks room assignments upon redeployment. These processes ensure good customer service to the units and single Soldiers.
Master Planning Division
Real Property Master Plan Branch provides the direction for the orderly development and sustainment of the real property assets of the installation. The planning process follows the professional practice of community planning and provides the installation with the vision and framework for long and short-term real property development. The Real Property Master Plan consists of five components: the Long Range Component, the Installation Design Guide, the Capital Investment Strategy, the Short Range Component and the RPMP Digest.
The RPMP Digest is the over-arching component of the RPMP and guides the scope of the plan. The Long Range Component contains focused, detailed planning strategies that guide the long-range use of land and facilities on the installation. It is a broad-based area analysis of the entire installation project over a period of 20 to 50 years. The Installation Design Guide prescribes the urban design and character of the installation. The Capital Investment Strategy contains the holistic set of actions needed to create the Real Property Vision. It focuses on strategies to integrate current demands with long-term facility needs, based on assessments of excesses and deficits. The Short Range Component marks the transition from planning to programming and provides a list of projects planned over the next five to seven years.
This process allows the Army and the installation to prioritize its limited resources; optimizes mission accomplishment through the best use of land, facilities and infrastructure; balance development and the need for environmental stewardship; provide strategies for anti-terrorism and critical infrastructure protection, reduce manpower and resources, and base realignment and closures; and it informs design and construction agents on the desired type of development and encourages development in the most suitable areas.
Operations and Maintenance Division
The Operations and Maintenance Division is responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of Fort Stewart and Hunter Airfield installation non-Family facilities, grounds, and utilities to include barracks, company and battalion headquarters, library, dining facilities, gyms, motor pools, storage buildings, parking lots, streetlights, storm water drainage, roads, grass cutting, refuse collection and the utilities systems. The division is divided into two branches, Operations and Contract management.
The Operations Branch provides the quality assurance of the contracted OM work force. Tsay/Ferguson and Williams is the current contractor and has responsibility for maintaining and operating the Installations’ facilities. A service order desk is operated to allow Installation’s personnel to call in requests for maintenance or repair of their facilities. A service order is for repair of existing facilities that can be done for less than $2,000 and under 40 hours. If the work requested is new work or will exceed these limits, an Individual Job Order must be initiated.

Soldiers with extensive trauma should report to the Winn Army Community Hospital Emergency Room. After normal duty hours, the Soldier should report to Winn Army Community Hospital Emergency Department. The Emergency Department staff will evaluate the problem and contact the Dental Officer on Duty if indicated to render appropriate dental treatment. A dentist and an oral maxillofacial surgeon are available on an “on-call” basis through the Emergency Department 24 hours a day.

This “Emergency Only” care will normally entail suturing lacerations, re-implanting avulsed teeth, or simple palliative treatment (such as providing pain medications, antibiotics, or place a temporary filling).

• Selecting a private dentist to receive dental care can be a difficult task. It is recommended to select a dentist who will provide emergency care to the Family Members whether it is during regular office hours or after office hours.
