Fluor Selected for Frances E. Warren Air Force Base Nuclear Weapons Storage and Maintenance Facility Contract
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Omaha District, has awarded Fluor a contract to construct a nuclear weapons storage and maintenance facility at the Frances E. Warren Air Force Base located approximately three miles west of Cheyenne, Wyoming. Fluor booked the $145 million contract value, which has a 40-month period of performance, in the fourth quarter of 2018.
Fluor will provide construction management services to build the 90,000 square foot reinforced concrete facility and supporting structures to include a fueling station, a generator building and a fire pump building.
“We’re excited to be able to support the modernization of the U.S. nuclear weapons infrastructure” said Tom D’Agostino, president of Fluor’s Government Group. “This win is another example of combining our deep nuclear program experience with large scale construction and fabrication capabilities to deliver effective, integrated solutions across the full range of critical national security missions. We take pride in supporting missions that protect the nation and those who serve.”
The new weapons facility will replace the current weapons storage area with a safer and more secure location for the storage of U.S. Air Force assets. The new facility will leverage new technologies to reduce program cost and increase efficiencies that will reduce personnel requirements, eliminate security deviations and address facility deficiencies. When the contract is completed, all weapons maintenance and storage operations at the site will be combined into a single facility for the U.S. Air Force.
Francis E. Warren Air Force Base is one of three strategic missile bases in the U.S. and is home of the 90th Missile Wing.
