Earlier this week, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers awarded Messer Construction a $126 million contract to for the final phase of construction on the new Intelligence Production Complex at Wright Patterson Air Force Base’s National Air and Space Intelligence Center (NASIC). This award follows Congressman Mike Turner’s (OH-10) continued advocacy for military construction funding for NASIC in the 2019 and 2020 National Defense Authorization Acts (NDAA).
“This $126 million dollar project funds the largest expansion that WPAFB has seen, and I am proud to have been at the forefront of advocating for it,” said Turner. “This project will help NASIC and WPAFB maintain their role as pioneers in space and air intelligence gathering activities.”
Work on the Intelligence Production Complex began at WPAFB in 2019 and is estimated for completion in early 2023. The contracted work will establish an additional 255k square feet of Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility (SCIF) space and will house 980 analysts supporting NASIC’s vital mission at Wright-Patterson.
