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
