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.
