SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District awarded a $5.4 million contract Sep. 15 to Mountain West Construction of Brigham City, Utah for the design and construction of new, earth-covered reinforced concrete modular Munitions Storage Magazines or "igloos” at Hill Air Force Base, Utah.
"The project will provide additional munitions storage capacity to support current and future missions and to support current real world deployments and training exercises," said Arianna Raymundo, project manager for the Sacramento District.
The new munitions storage magazines will be constructed within the Munition and Missile Storage area at Hill AFB. They will each measure 25 feet by 80 feet and will be capable of storing a combined total of 750,000 pounds of Class 1.1 munitions in order to meet the operational requirements of the U.S. Air Force.
Construction is scheduled to begin Sept. 29, and is expected to continue for two years with completion in 2019.
The Corps partners with military installations to deliver energy efficient infrastructure and to maintain enduring installations, primarily through restoring and modernizing existing installation facilities.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District provides planning, engineering, project management, environmental restoration and construction services to military and civilian customers in parts of eight western states, including California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Oregon and Wyoming.
