Picerne Military Housing has gone through a renovation of sorts – a name renovation, that is.
The housing company changed its name April 2 to Corvias Military Living.
Picerne Military Housing is a division of the Corvias Group, a privately-owned, real estate solutions group.
The purpose of the name change is to help the Corvias Group reinforce its brand by unifying the names of the military housing division and the new student housing division under the parent company name, according to a Corvias Group press release.
The corporate re-branding began in July 2012, with the introduction of the company's new student housing division, Corvias Campus Living.
"The scope of our project does not change, and the only impact to our residents is the change in name," said Brian Beauregard, program director, Corvias Military Living at Fort Riley. "We will continue with our current plan to build, renovate, maintain and manage Family housing at Fort Riley."
The transition of the name change is expected to take about one year to 18 months to complete.
In 2013, Corvias Military Living will build an additional 322 new homes and renovate 103 existing homes at Fort Riley, said Michelle Geering, communications manager, Corvias Military Living.
Since July 2006, Corvias also has completed construction of 1,465 new homes, renovated 1,469 homes and demolished 574 homes. Construction, renovations and demolitions at Fort Riley will continue through June 2016.
"This is an exciting time in the history of our company and for our employees," Beauregard said. "This change represents continued growth and future opportunities."
