Project Description

Following the events of September 11, 2001 and the subsequent U.S. military operations in Afghanistan, Perini Management Services was one of the first U.S. construction firms to mobilize to Afghanistan to support the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers mission to develop the Afghan National Army. We designed and constructed multiple buildings and facilities at an existing, run-down former Russian army base to include a 10MW power plant, headquarters building, dining facility and 30 barracks. We also provided all the utilities infrastructure for the planned 6,000 man training base: power supply and distribution; water supply, treatment and distribution; and wastewater treatment facilities. The work was executed on a fast-track basis, breaking ground within three weeks of receipt of the contract on New Year's Eve, 2002. 

“Throughout the 18 month project, Perini has worked tirelessly to address the many challenges of constructing new infrastructure in a country which had been devastated by years of conflict. We rely on contractors like Perini Corporation to help us accomplish our overseas missions.”
