LocationSan Antonio, Texas
Key Take AwayOur knowledge of Army operations and expertise in developing an accurate DOPAA
Gryphon assisted with completing the Department of the Army Programmatic EA for Infantry Brigade Combat Team (IBCT) conversion to an Armored Brigade Combat Team (ABCT) and stationing. Gryphon’s primary role was the completion of the Description of the Proposed Action and Alternatives (DOPAA) given our ability to quickly evaluate newly proposed operational and training requirements. Gryphon evaluated firing range use calculations, maneuver range throughput, and other combat unit training requirements at five locations throughout the nation: Fort Carson, Fort Bliss, Fort Hood, Fort Riley, and Fort Stewart. The proposed conversion was to support strategic decisions within the European Deterrence Initiative.

Colorado Army National Guard EA
Project TypeEnvironmental Assessment
LocationFort Carson, Colorado
Key Take AwayOur ability to quickly mobilize and complete a complex project expeditiously
The COARNG contracted Gryphon to urgently complete an EA for a new Readiness Center. The EA had to be completed within six months of notice to proceed or the project would have been unfunded. Upon award, Gryphon immediately coordinated with the Fort Carson Directorate of Public Works to determine host installation requirements and procedures, which served to streamline completion of project milestones. Gryphon’s adept understanding of Army and Army National Guard NEPA procedures facilitated completion of this project within scope and schedule. The construction of the new Readiness Center is scheduled for completion in 2020.
