The Charleston District has taken on five new customers this year and is excited with the opportunities that await the District. The Corps looks forward to working with Joint Base Charleston, Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command, Army Strategic Logistics Activity Charleston, Department of State and 81st Regional Support Command on various projects.
Joint Base Charleston (JBC) will be working with the District on several projects, including an architecture and engineering contract for a seismic study of a building, developing a request for proposal to renovate a building and two energy projects which will improve energy at various facilities on JBC. JBC merged Charleston Air Force Base and Naval Weapons Station in 2010 in accordance with congressional legislation implementing the recommendations of the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure Commission.
Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command Atlantic (SPAWAR) delivers higher-end Navy information technology products and services to the Naval fleet and other Department of Defense stakeholders. As the Navy’s Information Dominance Systems Command, SPAWAR designs, develops and deploys advanced communications and information capabilities. To help them accomplish their mission, the District is developing a preventive maintenance plan for their buildings. Planned maintenance includes preparing specifications and cost estimates for repair items, approving or disapproving service call requests and deciding what repair work will be funded.
Army Strategic Logistics Activity Charleston (ASLAC) has contracted the District to complete several sustainment, restoration and modernization (SRM) projects, such as installing new roll-up doors and paving storage areas. ASLAC’s mission is to provide equipment maintenance to all types of Army tactical cargo.
The Department of State required a building renovation that will be used to house human resource offices. This building has been renovated several times by other agencies; first it was a bowling alley and then a physical fitness building that was used by law enforcement agencies. The renovation is underway and should be completed by February 2012. The Department of State is the United States federal executive department responsible for international relations, equivalent to the foreign ministries of other countries.
The 81st Regional Support Command (RSC) tasked the Charleston District to build a facility at Fort Jackson that will be used for vehicle training and maintenance. The 81st RSC provides base operations (BASOPS) support and other services as directed by Headquarters, U.S. Army Reserve Command to customers in nine southeastern states and Puerto Rico to enable the Army Reserve to meet global requirements across the full spectrum of operations.
The Charleston District is excited to support the crucial roles these new customers have for the nation.
