Preparing for the 4th CAB
Building the foundation for Growth
Fort Carson, also known as The Mountain Post, is located at the base of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado Springs. Butts Army Airfield is located at the southern end of Fort Carson and will soon be home to the 4th Combat Aviation Brigade Headquarters and Headquarters Company that was inactivated in 2011 at Fort Hood and reactivated in 2013 at Fort Carson. This activation is anticipated to bring approximately 2,700 soldiers to Fort Carson along with 113 helicopters and more than 600 wheeled vehicles, trucks, and other associated support equipment.
To prepare for all of this new construction, we assisted with the construction of new roads, utilities, and infrastructure to support the full build for the Combat Aviation Brigade. The site was prepared with over 150,000 cubic yards of fill imported in less than 90 days via 8,300 truckloads to raise the existing grade elevation in excess of 20’ in some locations. Once the final elevation was met, a new 1.25 mile asphalt road was constructed ending at a new traffic circle constructed with 6,500 SF of stamped and stained concrete. New utility main systems were built across Butts Army Airfield to include: electrical, communications, natural gas, potable and non-potable water, fire water, industrial waste, sanitary sewer, and storm sewer.
