Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne, Wyoming.
Conti Federal first announced being awarded this venture on September 27, 2022, as its first mission-critical project in Wyoming and one of the many projects they have worked on with the USACE Omaha District to improve the nation’s security.

The project will include Helicopter Squadron Operations, TRF Alert Crew Facility, Alert Aircraft Shelter, Aircraft Maintenance Unit (AMU), Aircraft Maintenance Shelter, and Aircraft Simulator complex with a Satellite Fire Station.
The associated site improvements will also feature new taxiways, runways, helipads, and airfield lighting. Once complete, this facility will house the new MH-139A Grey Wolf helicopter.
The ceremony attendees included senior leads, Maj. Gen Michael Lutton, 20th Air Force Commander, Col. Mark Himes, Commander of the USACE Omaha District, Col. Catherine Barrington, Wing Commander of the F.E. Warren Air Force Base, Col. John Beurer, Lt. Col. Kathleen Tenpenny, Commander of the Air Force Helicopter Ops., Ted Streckfuss, Deputy District Engineer, Sheila Neuman, Chief of Operations, and the Conti Federal team and executives.
In addition to the firm’s expertise in military construction, Conti Federal has an extensive construction background that spans many other specialties, including complex, critical infrastructure, secure construction, environmental remediation, and disaster response and recovery. With projects and offices located CONUS and OCONUS, Conti Federal continues to build a reputation for getting the job Done Once, Done Right.
The estimated completion of the new aircraft complex is April 2025.
