Pentagon awards contract to complete delayed repairs on Air Force Academy’s Cadet Chapel
The Kansas City Business Journal reports that the Pentagon tapped JE Dunn Construction to complete the $158 million renovation after the project was postponed earlier this year.
“JE Dunn studied this project for five years, brought in talent from five offices and had over 50 JE Dunn professionals working on the competition,” Senior Vice President Margaret Bowker said in a news release, according to the Kansas City Business Journal.
JE Dunn Construction did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the Military Times.
In March, it was reported that repairs that were supposed to have started in January 2019 were being delayed indefinitely. The $68 million the Air Force had allocated for the project was subsequently transferred to attend to hurricane damage at Tyndall Air Force Base in Florida.
The chapel honors multiple faiths and includes a Protestant chapel, a Catholic chapel, a Jewish synagogue, a Muslim mosque and a Buddhist temple.
