The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Fort Worth District, awarded a $26.4-million contract to Minneapolis-based M.A. Mortenson Construction for a new headquarters building for the Army’s Installation Management Command, which will move to Fort Sam Houston from Arlington, Va., as part of the ongoing Base Realignment and Closure (or BRAC) process.
The 168,000-sq-ft building will be adjacent to four historic structures that are being renovated. It is scheduled to be finished in spring of 2011. The contract is the first of 26 expected to be awarded in 2010 for military construction in San Antonio, in total worth over $390 million.
