BALTIMORE --

The Maryland Air National Guard held a ribbon cutting ceremony for a new 175th Wing Headquarters building, March 8, 2014, at Warfield Air National Guard Base. The new $14 million, 33,700 square foot facility was completed in early 2014.

"The 175th Wing, Maryland Air National Guard, has critical function for the security of our country and to those of us in Maryland. They need to have adequate facilities," said U.S. Sen. Ben Cardin from Maryland.  "We show our support by making the facilities that they need."

The building will be the new home of wing leadership, the Mission Support Group, Medical Group and other wing support functions. Some of the airmen are moving from a 1960s era Operations and Training building.

 "It gives us operable space that we have needed for quite a few years," said Brig. Gen. Scott Kelly, 175th Wing commander.

U.S. Army Maj. Gen. James A. Adkins, the Adjutant General for Maryland, hosted the ceremony attended by military members and political representation from the federal, state and local levels.

"Any kind of new development or new improvements that happen on the base shows that you are vested here in this area," Baltimore County Councilwoman Cathy Bevins said.  "It is huge to eastern Baltimore County."

The facility was built to achieve LEED Silver Certified standards including multiple energy saving materials and systems to include sustainable green roofs.

This new building improves space allocations, has state of the art environmental control systems and meets all force protection requirements, creating a modern, functional and eco-friendly work environment.
