SACRAMENTO, Calif. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District awarded a $53,699,643 contract Aug. 7 to Swinerton Builders of Arvada, Colo., for construction of a distributed common ground support operations facility at Beale Air Force Base, near Marysville.

“The new operations facility will aid Beale personnel in their global surveillance mission,” said Ken Wing, USACE Sacramento District project manager.

Construction is expected to begin in early September and be completed in February 2017.

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.
