Hensel Phelps Awarded Zone 1 F-35 Flightline Facilities at Tyndall Air Force Base, Florida

TYNDALL AIR FORCE BASE, FL — The United State Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Mobile District awarded the Hensel Phelps Southeast District the $531-million Zone 1 F-35 Flightline Facilities project at Tyndall Air Force Base, Florida.

In October 2018, Hurricane Michael swept through the Florida Panhandle and left many areas devastated, including Tyndall Air Force Base. In a matter of hours, the storm escalated from Category 2 to Category 5. After the storm passed, the base reported that over 400 buildings were destroyed or damaged beyond repair. As a part of the effort to rebuild the base, the USACE released the Zone 1 F-35 Flightline Facilities project in the summer of 2021 with an award made in the spring of 2022. This was one of many procurements to help rebuild the base.

This design-bid-build project is for the construction of 11 facilities for the Zone 1 F-35 Flightline. The team will provide all utilities, site improvements, pavements, detection/protection features, security enhancements, and other supporting work necessary for each facility.

The facilities are as follows:

  • F-35 Parking Apron
  • OPS/Aircraft Maintenance Unit Hangar #1
  • OPS/Aircraft Maintenance Unit Hangar #2
  • OPS/Aircraft Maintenance Unit Hangar #3
  • Flight Simulator Facility
  • Weapons Load Training Hangar
  • Aircraft MX Fuel Cell Hangar
  • F-35 Maintenance Squadron Complex
  • Logistics Readiness Squadron
  • Auxiliary Ground Equipment
  • Corrosion Control Facility
  • Operation Group/Maintenance Group HQ

The project is scheduled to be complete by January 2026.
