Dover Air Force Base

Dover’s massive C-5 and C-17 transports move people, equipment and supplies around the world. The District has completed a number of construction projects in support of the host 436th Military Airlift Wing, most notably the three facilities tied into the post’s mission of caring and honoring the fallen – the Charles C. Carson Center for Mortuary Affairs; the Armed Forces Medical Examiner System Facility; and Joint Personnel Effects Depot. We’ve also built a new Fitness Center, Air Traffic Control Tower, and Flight simulator facilities.

Tobyhanna Army Depot

The Philadelphia District manages military construction for Tobyhanna Army Depot in northeastern Pennsylvania. The installation is the largest, full-service electronics maintenance facility in the Department of Defense and employs more than 5000 people.

Global Power Contracting

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Philadelphia District works closely with the 249th Engineer Battalion to manage power contracts to deliver centralized power plants and distribution grids in support of Overseas Contingency Operations and the USACE Middle East District. Since 2003, the District has executed billions in the Global Power Program. 

C4ISR

At Aberdeen Proving Ground, the Philadelphia District was tasked with building the facilities and related infrastructure to accommodate the Army's research and development activities for Command and Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Sensors and Reconnaissance (C4ISR), moving from Fort Monmouth, N.J. under the Base Realignment and Closure Act of 2005. The District completed the nearly billion dollar program on time and on budget in 2011. The project team was nationally recognized for excellence  by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
