TEMPE, Ariz. – An Arizona construction company has received a contract for the first phase of a $57 million Warriors in Transition Complex at Fort Bliss, Texas.

Sundt Construction Co. of Tempe, Ariz., was chosen for the $30 million initial phase by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Design work is to start in June. The two-phase project is to be finished by late 2010.

The complex, with 185,000 square feet, is designed to help in the recovery and rehabilitation of injured soldiers. The first phase consists of the barracks building and site infrastructure. Phase two includes the administrative building and the Soldier and Family Assistance Center.

The project in Texas is the first of nine Military Construction Army projects funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, also called the federal stimulus package.

The three-story barracks building, with 140,000 square feet of living quarters, will offer apartments for 232 injured soldiers.

The Fort Bliss complex is one of two of its type being funded under the ARRA program. The second one will be a $43 million facility to be constructed at Fort Campbell, Ky.
