Minot Air Force Base Missile Procedures Training Operations Facility

Minot Air Force Base Missile Procedures Training Operations Facility was awarded LEED Gold certification in April 2012. The project achieved 50.9 percent energy cost reduction, reduced indoor potable water consumption by 48.9 percent and provides signage to educate occupants about the high performance facility and other important sustainability features.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' current military construction mission, one of the largest since World War II, consists of an average annual program of $10B (FY09-13) to meet the demand created by growth in the Army, global restationing, and base realignment and closure. Northwestern Division’s share of this work in the current fiscal year is about $1.1 billion on average through FY15.

The Northwestern Division offers a wide range of services to its military customers. It is headquartered in Portland, Oregon, with a regional office in Omaha, Nebraska, and five subordinate district offices located in Seattle and Walla Walla, Washington; Kansas City, Missouri; Omaha; and Portland. Northwestern Division headquarters coordinates technical policy and budgetary issues that cross district boundaries, as well as provide regional interface with other Federal and state agencies, congressional leaders, interest groups and international commissions. Expertise ranges from master planning to engineering plans and specifications, to construction management and installation support. Typical projects include new construction or renovation of military housing, barracks, operations centers, office/classroom buildings and child care facilities

Northwestern Division and its districts are experienced in partnering agreements with customers, in-house or contracted design of projects, advertisement and award of the construction contract (bid projects, negotiated projects, best value, request for proposals), financial administration of the contract, and field supervision and quality assurance inspections of the construction work underway. Kansas City, Seattle and Omaha districts collaborate to execute the Division's annual military workload.
