Corvias Military Living, LLC offers construction and property management services for military installations across the United States. This company was originally established as Picerne Military Housing in 1998 within the Picerne Real Estate Group organization. In 2001, they won their first big military housing contract for the privatization of the housing at Fort Meade.
With the success of this project, Corvias received additional contracts that made them responsible for the renovation and management of many military housing installations across the country. This company also completes all construction for new and existing structures to ensure the private military housing meets the established standards. To this date, they have more than 6,000 residential renovations and 5,000 new home builds completed. Plans to expand to the management of student housing is currently in the works within the new Corvias Group parent company.

Lawsuits, Sanctions and Penalties Against Corvias Military Living
In 2016, after a longstanding battle, the Judge Douglas Blankenship of the Fourth Judicial District Superior Court ruled that the Fairbanks North Star Borough had the right to tax Corvias for the housing units on Eielson Air Force Base. The judge determined that the two sides should come to a mutual agreement, however, on the payment terms.
In Knitter v. Corvias Military Living, LLC, the district court and the United States Court of Appeals found and supported summary judgement for Picerne, as Corvias was called in 2014. Picerne was determined to not be a joint employer of the plaintiff, and therefore, could not be responsible for the alleged wage discrimination claims.
When a dog bit a five-year-old child living on base in 2017, Corvias was named in a lawsuit alongside the dog’s owners. The child’s mother and plaintiff in the suit, Angela Herrington, claims that Corvias failed to ensure proper safeguards and inspections. A trial by jury will be held at the Western District of Louisiana court in the near future.
In 2007, at least eleven families were forced to move our of their homes on Fort Bragg because one of Corvias' (formerly Picerne) subcontractors had illegally buried construction waste.
In 2012, Corvias (formerly Picerne) illegally dumped between 5,000 and 9,000 gallons of raw sewage into a storm drain on Ft. Riley, Kansas that went straight into the Republican River. They were caught by the Environmental Protection Agency and fined $24,900.
