Woolpert-KZF Joint Venture Signed by USACE Japan District to Support Design of $150M CV-22 Complex

FUSSA, Japan (Jan. 26, 2016) — The Japan District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has awarded the Woolpert-KZF Joint Venture (W-KZF JV) three task orders totaling approximately $6.95 million to support the design of a $150 million  CV-22 complex at Yokota Air Base in Fussa, Japan.

The facilities, which will support the beddown of CV-22 Osprey aircraft at the base, include an aircraft maintenance hangar, a squadron operations building, an MRSP warehouse, a flight simulator facility and a headquarters building.

W-KZF JV is working closely with Jacobs Engineering of California. Jacobs is providing design services in support of the horizontal infrastructure improvements for the CV-22 campus development.

Woolpert is a national architecture, engineering and geospatial firm headquartered in Dayton, and  KZF Design is an architecture, engineering, planning and interior design firm based in Cincinnati. The Ohio firms’ joint venture also was selected this summer to provide full design and construction services for the schools serving U.S. military families in Japan.

Jacobs, headquartered in Pasadena, is one of the world’s largest and most diverse providers of technical, professional and construction services.

Project Manager Rebecca Knolle said Woolpert has been working on the CV-22 campus development plan with Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) since 2013.

“We’ve been with this endeavor from the outset,” Knolle said. “What’s novel about this project is that it will require the W-KZF JV and Jacobs teams to work collaboratively. We see this as a good opportunity for knowledge sharing.”

Construction is expected to begin on the complex in 2017 and will be completed in 2020-21.
