F.E. WARREN AIR FORCE BASE, Wyo. --
Major General Fred Stoss, 20th Air Force commander, welcomed the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to F.E. Warren Air Force Base, Wyoming, May 21, 2019, to attend a groundbreaking event for a contract awarded the Fluor Corporation to build a new Weapons Generation Facility on base.
The new 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 current facility is old,” said Brent Croft, 90th Civil Engineer Squadron environmental engineer. “This new facility will use modernized technology, which alone will improve the safety of our assets.”
The facility will leverage new technology to reduce program cost and increase effectiveness, which will reduce personnel requirements, eliminate security deviations and address facility deficiencies.
“Construction is a complex process, especially here in Wyoming with the weather,” said Croft. “The process will take time and dedication to complete.”
Fluor has been given a 40 month period to complete the facility and is scheduled to begin construction in late 2019.
