by | Jul 20, 2022 | News

MAUMEE, OH – CMS Corporation (CMS) announced today it has been awarded a $12.6 million project to repair the All American Landing Zone (AALZ) at Camp Robinson, AR, for Little Rock Air Force Base (AFB). This project was awarded under CMS’s prime contract with the Air Force under its $2.5B Regional Engineering and Construction (RE&C) program.

Camp Robinson, a 33,000-acre Army National Guard training facility, is the headquarters of the Arkansas National Guard and one of the largest state-operated training sites in the United States. The AALZ is located approx. 7 miles west of the installation, within the north-central portion of Camp Robinson. Little Rock AFB airmen conduct both airdrops and air landings at the AALZ. 

Under this contract, CMS will oversee the full-depth repair of the east, west and parallel taxiways, demolition of taxiway lighting, re-grading the landing zone to improve storm drainage, and installation of a storm drain under the existing drop zone service road. Another key part of the project is to construct a new deer fence around the airfield perimeter (over 17,000 linear feet) to prevent wildlife intrusion, build new service roads around the deer fence, install new storm drain under the fence and service road, and construct new service roads in the drop zone.

CMS Chairman and CEO, Ernest Enrique, PE, noted, “This award is yet another demonstration of the depth and breadth of in-house expertise we offer to our Department of Defense clients. We look forward to delivering a high quality airfield project to the Air Force – on time, safely and with a high degree of client satisfaction.”
