Military Installations We Serve

New York District's military construction program provides design, construction and real estate support to the Army, Army Reserve and Army Recruiting facilities. In addition, we provide design and construction support to the U.S. Air Force bases including overseas in Greenland. Our program is growing to keep pace with the biggest organizational change of the Army since World War II. The Army is changing from a force that was prepared to take on one or two potential wars at one time to one that is expeditionary in nature and can deploy continuously to different parts of the world. This change requires that troops be relocated and that they be provided with infrastructure to house them, train them and provide their families with the quality of life they deserve. Military Customers include:
