The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Omaha District, contracted Fluor to construct a weapons generation facility at the Frances E. Warren Air Force Base, located approximately three miles west of Cheyenne, Wyoming.
The 90,000-square-foot reinforced concrete facility and supporting structures will include a fueling station, a generator building and a fire pump building.
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 facility will leverage new technologies to reduce program cost and increase efficiencies that will reduce personnel requirements, eliminate security deviations and address facility deficiencies.
Francis E. Warren Air Force Base is one of three strategic missile bases in the U.S. and is home to the 90th Missile Wing.
Fluor will provide construction management services for the new facility. The award has a 40-month period of performance.
When the contract is completed, all weapons maintenance and storage operations at the site will be combined into a single facility for the 90th Strategic Missile Wing.
