SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District awarded a $15,947,269 contract to MACNAK Korte Group LLC of Lakewood, Wash., June 10 to build a new civil engineer administration and operations facility at Beale Air Force Base.
The new facility will replace one that was destroyed by fire in January 2013. Over 200 personnel were displaced by the fire and are currently working in temporary trailers. The Corps will begin designing the facility this summer and plans to begin construction in the spring of 2015. Construction is expected to be completed in the spring of 2016.
"This is a critical facility for Beale and we're going to get it built as quickly as we possibly can," said Doug Delaney, a Corps senior project manager.
Beale is a training facility and airbase for the U.S. Air Force’s 9th Reconnaissance Wing and is home to some of the nation’s most sophisticated manned and unmanned aircraft, including the U-2 Dragon Lady and the RQ-4 Global Hawk remotely-piloted aircraft.
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.
