FORT WORTH, Texas – U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Fort Worth District, recently awarded a contract totaling $23,000 for Topographical, Planimetric and Utility survey and digital mapping of the land near the site of the Fort Bliss Replacement Hospital on Fort Bliss, Texas.
The survey is for a National Intrepid Center of Excellence satellite facility to extend the care out to the home bases of Service members suffering from the effects of traumatic brain injury and physiological health issues. Each Intrepid Spirit center is roughly 25,000 square feet and costs approximately $11 million to build and equip.
The survey is being conducted to ensure there have been no changes to the future site of the satellite facility due to the replacement hospital construction. The survey will take approximately five months to complete.
