FY20 SOF 22 STS Operations Facility
The FY20 SOF 22 STS Operations Facility is a $42.7M, multi-building, Special Tactics Squadron (STS) operations compound, consisting of 97,000 SF of new construction and 60,300 SF of demolition at Joint Base Lewis-McChord. The project is a joint venture with Absher’s small-business protégé, Jabez Construction, and is a 100% small-business set-aside. Work includes construction of a combined 85,000 SF squadron operations building and eight-story parachute drying tower, as well as a 12,000 SF covered storage area and demolition of five buildings.
The facilities will provide a wide variety of functions, including Aircrew Flight Equipment (AFE) shop with integrated parachute drying tower and climbing wall, vehicle maintenance shop, radio maintenance, operations, logistics, medical, classrooms and offices, simulator room, armory, storage and staging areas, a pre-engineered metal building and an antenna farm. Parking for approximately 150 vehicles will also be included, along with extensive site work, utilities, communication and information systems, landscaping and signage. The project is scheduled to complete in July 2022.
