FORT BLISS, Texas – Clark Design/Build, LLC successfully completed the turnover of all three phases of construction on the $171-million Temporary Unit of Action Facility Project at Biggs Army Airfield, Fort Bliss, Texas, for the United States Army Corps of Engineers - Fort Worth District. The project was completed eight months after construction began.

The design/build entity consisted of Clark Construction Group, LLC of Tampa, Fla. and LS3P ASSOCIATES LTD. of Charleston, S.C. Other team members included GE Modular Systems; Williams Scotsman, Inc.; Bergelectric Corporation; Phillips and Jordan, Inc.; and Nash Plumbing.

This Temporary Unit of Action project supports a brigade being formed under the U.S. Army’s Modular Force transformation program. The project includes 412 barracks, 13 laundry facilities, 20 storage buildings, 13 dayroom facilities and 65 administration buildings. In addition, Clark Design/Build constructed a 26,000-square-foot dining facility, as well as five 10,000-square-foot tensioned fabric structures to house combat vehicle maintenance.

Fort Bliss is the home of the Air Defense Artillery Center of Excellence and is responsible for air defense artillery training of U.S. soldiers and various allied nation soldiers. It is also the home of numerous Forces Command war fighting units, including air defense artillery, cavalry, military police, ordinance company and others. With 1.2 million acres across Texas and New Mexico, this post is bigger than the state of Rhode Island and can accommodate every weapon system in the U.S. Army.
