Military Construction Program

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers-Alaska District is the primary design and construction agent for the Army and the Air Force in Alaska.

The facilities that the district builds support the nation’s soldiers and airmen by improving their quality of life and furthering their readiness for their mission, including the Overseas Contingency Operations. Many of our projects are technically challenging as they incorporate the latest state-of the-art features in materials, and electronic and utility systems.

The district's projects support the evolving military stationing and transformation strategy. The Army has created highly mobile forces that can be deployed anywhere in the world in just a few hours. Alaska’s location has the strategic advantage of being equidistant of all the hot spots in Europe, Asia and the Pacific Theater.

District projects support the Army’s Stryker Brigade and Aviation Task Force at Fort Wainwright and the Air Force’s beddown of the F-22 Fighter jet and the Army’s Airborne and Maneuver Enhancement brigades at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson.

Alaska District received 2009 Air Force Concept Design Award for the Eielson Air Force Base Chapel and Facility Design Award at Eielson Air Force Base Physical Fitness Center Addition and Alteration.

The district has designed six facilities, completed 63 projects and are actively engaged in 13 other missile defense-related construction efforts such as Clear Air Force Station’s $347 million Long Range Discrimination Radar complex.
On June 5, Honorable Lucian Niemeyer and representatives for the Missile Defense Agency, Air Force, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and construction contractors gathered for a groundbreaking ceremony at Fort Greely near Delta Junction, Alaska. The event celebrated the start of construction for the $200 million Missile Field Four.
Building 2205 is state-of-the-art, three-stories and will accommodate 168 enlisted personnel. The facility was planned to support Red-Flag Alaska – a series of field training exercises in a simulated combat environment for a large amount of permanent and temporary personnel. However, an anticipated influx of about 1,200 airmen following the arrival of 54 F-35A Joint Strike Fighter jets in 2020 made the additional living quarters a critical need.
Established in 2009 under the Army Contracting Command, the military contingency contracting team provides assistance to the Alaska District’s Asia Office. The district constructs schools, medical clinics and cyclone shelters on behalf of U.S. Pacific Command, which is responsible for providing humanitarian aid to 36 countries across Southeast Asia.
Plastic liners cover a landfarming cell near the Tanke Site E project near Nome, Alaska. The liners create a greenhouse effect by trapping heat and moisture to provide ideal conditions for microbial activity that degrades contaminates. Landfarming is a potential solution to meet the needs of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers – Alaska District’s Formerly Used Defense Sites program across Alaska. The process includes removing contaminated soil from the source location, spreading it across an expansive area one to two feet thick, tilling consistently and then letting nature take control to degrade the pollutants.
