WIESBADEN, Germany -- The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Europe District awarded a two-year, 54.3 million euro contract May 28 to Ed. Züblin AG, headquartered in Stuttgart, to construct townhouses, duplexes and single-family homes on the northwest corner of the Army Family Housing area at the Wiesbaden Army Airfield.
The contract provides funds for 278 townhouses to be constructed on 41.50 hectares (103 acres) of land with a possibility to award an additional 48 units. The homes are designed as three- and four-bedroom units that will house junior and senior noncommissioned Soldiers, field grade officers and six general officers.
Additionally, by relocating two townhouses, the contract allows for the existing archeological site on which Roman ruins were discovered late 2009 to be preserved.
Supporting utilities are funded separately. Ed. Züblin is expected to start vertical construction by late June 2010 and complete it in early 2012.
