Corps of Engineers spends quarter-billion in FY06

HONOLULU — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Honolulu District awarded more than $228 million in contracts during Fiscal Year 2006.

According to a Corps press release, military and civil construction contracts included almost $30 million in spending on Fort Shafter, the Corps’ base.

The lion’s share of that sum — $19.3 million — went to modular buildings and arms vaults. More than $7.5 million was spent on building and gate renovation at the O‘ahu site, and $1.6 million went to the construction of a golf maintenance facility.

The Corps also spent money to upgrade the dental clinic and other facilities at Tripler Army Medical Clinic and the electrical system at Hickam Air Force Base, as well as provide health and safety support for civilians at Schofield Barracks.

On the Big Island, the Corps spent $129,000 on approximately 18 miles of property fencing for the Army’s Pohakuloa Training Area, which works with unexploded ordnance.
