New Real Estate Tool Will Help Garrisons Make Better Use of Space

October 24, 2022

A new online real estate tool called the Real Property Space Availability “could potentially help Army garrisons identify available space and lease-consolidation opportunities to save on construction costs, attract new missions, and improve the lives of soldiers and their families,” Stephen Warns wrote in a DOD story.

The tool, still in its early phases, uses data from multiple systems and “focuses on better space utilization across our installations and garrisons,” said David Hulka, Installation Geospatial Information and Services deputy program manager for the deputy chief of staff, G9’s Real Property Asset Management Division. “It’s a combination of not just filling empty buildings but balancing out our overcrowded installations.”

The idea for RPSA originated at Rock Island Arsenal, Illinois.
