Tribal One Construction (T1 Construction, LLC) is taking on an Alpha Ramp Pavement Replacement Project at the Butts Army Airfield at Fort Carson, Colo., under a $14.6 million contract with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Omaha District.
According to Brady Scott, CEO of Tribal One Development, this project represents the largest, purely construction contract awarded to Tribal One Construction since its inception in 2016.
“Our work over the past four years has built a platform of experience and a considerable degree of confidence among our team members, and this confidence now is shared by our Department of Defense customers,” Scott said. “We are very pleased that the Army selected Tribal One Construction to complete this portion of their continuing efforts to improve airfield facilities at Fort Carson.”
Under this contract, Tribal One will create and execute a two-phased plan to replace a major portion of the helicopter parking apron at the airfield. The plan will begin with demolition and replacement of approximately half of the pavement and incorporate an upgrade of the airfield edge lights. The second phase will replace the remaining pavement and lighting. Tribal One will close out the project with new pavement markings.
This project is required to address the deterioration of the existing pavement at the airfield. It is vital to the mission of the Combat Air Cavalry Units stationed at Fort Carson as they train for future deployments to Afghanistan and maintain readiness for defense of the nation.
Construction Executive Erik Sell said the work will proceed with COVID-19 precautions firmly in place.
“Our team members have been working during the current pandemic under strict safety protocols,” Sell said. “Workers on this project will remain mindful of social distancing requirements and other safety and hygiene recommendations offered by federal health authorities.”
Work on the project is expected to begin June 1, 2020.
