FORT SHAFTER — A contract has been awarded to build the first phase of the 25th Infantry Division’s Combat Aviation Brigade, or CAB, infrastructure, at Wheeler Army Airfield.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers-Honolulu District awarded the $54 million contract, June 29, to David Boland, Inc., of Titusville, Fla., for the fiscal year 2012 project.
The CAB infrastructure project is essential for the 25th ID to meet future mission requirements. It will be the first of 17 phases for a new CAB campus.
Construction includes demolition and clearing of the proposed CAB campus, as well as upgrades to electrical and telecommunication systems and supporting facilities at Buildings 575, 1322 and 1324.
Work also includes grading, erecting roadways and sidewalks, and creating sewer, water, fire protection, drainage, power, communications and fuel systems.
Construction of future phases will include barracks, company and battalion operational facilities, dining facilities, a parking apron and taxiway for the future CAB campus.
Future phases, however, have not yet been funded by Congress.
