The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) was required to construct support facilities for the Special Operations Forces (SOF) Headquarters. The facility was to be a fully connected, secured, and operable compound on 245,000 square feet of land, sized and designed for 400 SOF personnel. Facilities in the compound include a Joint Operations Center (JOC), 400 PX billeting facilities, a communications building, a tactical operations center, a training facility, a medical aid station, a vehicle maintenance facility, a logistics operations facility, a logistics storage facility, a dining facility, a laundry facility, and a kennel to support up to eight working dogs. Supporting facilities include roads, power production system and electrical distribution, water well, non-potable water production, water storage, water distribution, sanitary sewer collection system, communication manhole/duct system, curbs, walkways, drainage, and parking. Additionally, the Project included site preparation and compound security measures to include guard towers and Antiterrorism/Force Protection measures.

Spire assisted ECC International, on behalf of the law firm, Cohme Segalias Pallas Greenhall & Furman PC, by performing a schedule delay analysis to support the construction claims process. Spire utilized this schedule delay analysis to write a report of findings in order to help the client defend their position during trial.
