The Charleston District’s MILCON program is responsible for design and construction for the Army and Operation and Maintenance, including Sustainment, Restoration and Modernization, for the Army, Air Force, and other DOD agencies.
Project managers work with project delivery teams in order to serve our military customers by providing the best facilities possible to support our Armed Forces. We will continue this tradition within the Corps as one team proudly serving the Armed Forces and the nation’s engineering challenges.
Fort Jackson, in Columbia, SC, is the primary location for the District’s military mission and where 25 District employees are located to better serve our Soldiers by providing the best facilities possible. The District has built or renovated multiple barracks, dining facilities, battalion headquarters, ranges and a chaplaincy center in support of the 44,000 Soldiers at Fort Jackson.
The District has completed several unique and important projects in the past few years. The Quad Dining Facility consisted of adapting two two-story Dual Dining Facilities that are able to feed 5,200 trainee Soldiers per meal within 90 minutes, three times per day, seven days a week, and 52 weeks per year. The District constructed Pierce Terrace Elementary School for students living at Fort Jackson and is the educational home for up to 325 pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, and first-and second- grade students.
