The Israeli Defense Force required construction of a highly complex facility at an air force base in southern Israel. One of the base’s largest, the project involves construction of a complex underground facility, including six above-grade buildings and one five-level below-grade building. Altogether, the entire built up area encompasses 35,000 square meters (380,000 square feet) and extends over 24 meters (80 feet) underground.
To complete this project on an active airfield, Conti cast in place large volumes of concrete involving various strengths and mix designs, constructed utility tunnels connecting to buildings, installed complex utility, advanced communications and building management systems and mitigated related challenges.
Conti performed this work under tight security requirements due to the classified and sensitive nature of the project and managed all site security protocols independently. The US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and the Israeli government required the team to be escorted by security personnel whenever entering and leaving the site.
The USACE Europe District issued a “Safety Equals Quality” award to the project team and assigned Conti a performance evaluation of “Excellent” for its work on this mega-project under tight security and schedule requirements.
Conti is the developer and part-owner of this planned port, a national asset representing Georgia’s historic significance and vital role in the global economy.
Conti is the developer of a hospital that will be designed to adopt the highest medical standards and also join with a world class university.
