The Fort Worth District has one of the widest ‘footprints’ when it comes to Military projects.  Those projects directly impact and support our Military members and their Families, and bring an added personal reward for all team members involved in them. 

  The Fort Worth District’s Military Program is comprised of a dedicated and multi-disciplined team supporting 14 Army and Air Force installations and other Military customers throughout Texas, Louisiana and New Mexico.  The District manages a robust design and military construction (MILCON) and reimbursable program totaling $6.8 billion in active projects. 

“Our Fort Worth District is able to deliver multiple projects and contracts to the installation with a focus on maintaining the existing infrastructure and updating facilities and its supporting elements,” said Col. Kenneth N. Reed, Commander, Fort Worth District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Major Projects of the Fort Worth District Military Programs Mission include:

·         Corpus Christi Army Depot Hangar 4.   This project will culminate as the home of the UH-60 Blackhawk recapitalization program.

·         Fort Bliss Replacement Hospital.  The replacement hospital will be a new 1.1 million square foot Medical Center to serve the growing active duty and retiree population in and around the Fort Bliss and El Paso area.  The campus will include a main hospital, inpatient and outpatient clinics, and administrative building, research building, central utility plant, two access control points and surface parking with over 4,000 spaces. 

·         Fort Hood Simulations Center.  This project is for a 145,585 square foot Mission Training Complex (MTC), a Security Access Facility (SAF) and Tactical Operations Center pads.  The center will support individual and battle staff training, with a focus on command and control operations. 

·         Joint Base San Antonio, Lackland Air Force Base Airmen Training Complex (ATC).  The ATC is currently the Air Force’s largest MILCON program, spanning ten fiscal years.  The ATC MILCON Program will provide state-of-the-art facilities to support the eight and one half week Basic Military Training (BMT) program for up to 40,000 Air Force trainees annually.  The project also has the great distinction of being recognized as the 2017 Project Delivery Team of the Year.

·         Joint Base San Antonio, San Antonio Military Medical Center (SAMMC), Hyperbaric Medical Addition.  The hyperbaric chamber project provides state of the art hyperbaric treatment capabilities for wound care, decompression sickness, arterial gas embolisms, carbon monoxide poisoning and numerous adjunctive treatments. One of the many outstanding benefits to patients is that the chamber can serve multiple patients. 

The Fort Worth will continue to push the bar of its Military Programs mission, striving to improve processes and execution methods to maximize the quality of facilities for Soldiers, Airmen, and their families.
