Turner Construction has been awarded a $389m contract by the US Army Corps of Engineers to build two structures at the Offutt Air Base outside Omaha, Nebraska to increase flood resilience.
In March 2019 Offutt Air Base suffered a major flood and Turner’s contract is the final piece of a recovery program to raise the base above a 100-year flood plain.
A 420,000-sq-ft, three-story building will house intelligence, training, maintenance, and reconnaissance squadrons.
A 5,000-sq-ft structure will become a shipping and receiving facility.
Corey Taylor, Turner Construction’s business manager, said: “We look forward to working with the Air Force Civil Engineer Center and the US Army Corps of Engineers on this project that will consolidate and improve operations at Offutt Air Force Base.”
Turner’s two buildings are due to be completed by December 2027.
