Officials with the US Army Corps of Engineers say, they expect to bring $215 million worth of construction projects onto Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield over the next 12 months.
"These new contracts will have a huge impact on the local economy, providing job opportunities for construction
workers and suppliers as well as helping to sustain local businesses through the continued influx of workers to the
area," said Doug Saxon, Area Engineer for Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield.
Officials say, currently, the two Army posts have 22 active contracts totalling $470 million.
New projects include new officers homes, new brigade headquarters and the beginning of a medical campus focused on complex injuries.
