The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers awarded Turner Construction Company a $389 million contract to construct two buildings at Offutt Air Base outside Omaha, Nebraska. The project at Offutt Air Force Base will make operations more resilient to potential flooding events in the future.
The Air Base suffered a major flood in March 2019 and this project is the final piece of a recovery program that is underway to raise facilities above the 100-year flood plain. A three-story, 420,000-square-foot non-kinetic operation will house intelligence, training, maintenance, and reconnaissance squadrons. A 5,000-square-foot defense courier station will be a shipping and receiving facility.
Corey Taylor, Business Manager for Turner Construction Company, said, “We look forward to working with the Air Force Civil Engineer Center and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on this project that will consolidate and improve operations at Offutt Air Force Base.”
The facilities are slated to open in December 2027.
