ATLANTA – The Pond-JM Waller team has been chosen for design services in support of the Hurricane Michael Rebuild at Tyndall Air Force Base in Florida.
In October 2018, the strategically vital Tyndall Air Force Base was hit by a Category 5 Hurricane (Michael), causing extensive damage to hundreds of the buildings and structures. As one of the largest bases in the US and situated in a key location near the Gulf of Mexico, the operational impacts of the storm were substantial. Over the past year, the base has undergone recovery activities, while also working through the planning process to rebuild as an improved, efficient, technologically advanced installation.
To facilitate the Air Force’s plan to rebuild Tyndall as a “Base of the Future”, the hundreds of affected facilities have been divided into strategic zones for redevelopment. Pond-JM Waller has been selected to support Zone 5: The Support-Industrial Zone, one of the largest zones and budgets allocated in the rebuild effort. This zone includes projects for the Logistics Readiness Squadron and the Civil Engineering, Contracting, and Unites States Army Corps of Engineers Complex.
“We are proud of this opportunity to aid Tyndall Air Force Base in their mission,” says Mike Magahey, Pond’s Vice President of Defense. “The Pond-JM Waller team is eager to partner with the Air Force and US Army Corps of Engineers to get this important Air Force Base back to serving training and other critical missions.”
