The Baltimore District has a robust, multi-state and multi-installation military construction program. We have many ongoing projects with more planned for award and groundbreaking. In 2016, we will continue building projects that support Soldiers and our interagency partners with $650 million in construction work at installations in our area of responsibility.

The District supports our service members through a military design, engineering and construction management program for 15 military installations in Maryland, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Virginia and the District of Columbia. Facility projects include design and construction of administrative spaces, medical and laboratory facilities, training facilities, childcare centers, and barracks.
Overall, the District delivers Architect-Engineer-Construction and Program and Project Management services across the life cycle of these facilities. We provide our military stakeholders with quality facilities that meet mission needs and are in compliance with laws, regulations, budgets and local permitting requirements. In addition, our projects are often technically complex and both high-value and highly visible.
Under the Base Realignment and Closure Act of 2005, the Baltimore District was responsible for renovations and new construction for expanding installations in the region. The District successfully completed $4.2 billion worth of projects at Fort Belvoir in Virginia; Aberdeen Proving Ground, Fort Detrick and Fort Meade in Maryland; and in Pennsylvania at the Defense Distribution Center in New Cumberland, Letterkenny Army Depot in Chambersburg and at the Tobyhanna Army Depot. The District successfully completed this historic BRAC mission, and now continues to support our customers with budgets that are leaner but no less important for military construction.
Our work supports the USACE Campaign Goal #1 – Support the Warfighter. This includes partnering with the Army’s Installation Management Command to deliver and maintain enduring installations and contingency basing. In addition, these projects support the Army and nation in achieving our energy security and sustainability goals – reducing energy dependence, increasing energy efficiency, and adopting renewable and alternative energy sources.
The District’s Interagency and International Services (IIS), located in Programs and Project Management Division-Military, supports non-Department of Defense federal agencies and others. Currently, the District is performing multiple projects on Joint Base Andrews including taxiway and facility improvements, dormitory repairs, and repairs to runway drainage systems.
In addition, our Planning Division provides technical expertise to assist military installations in Maryland in reducing their nitrogen, phosphorous and sediment discharges to meet EPA guidelines. This work supports continuing, multi-agency (state and federal) work in cleaning up the Chesapeake Bay.
