BROWNSVILLE, Texas (Jan. 12, 2011) - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Southwestern Division Commander Col. Thomas W. Kula makes a brief stop at Hope Park Jan. 12 to view the progression of a 604-feet segment of fence in Brownsville. The USACE provided real estate, engineering and construction services in support of the Department of Homeland Security's Border Fence Project. This portion of the fence was completed within 30 days.
Our mission is to support and direct the technical aspects of engineering, construction management, environmental protection and restoration, operations, maintenance and repair activities of the USACE Galveston District.
We integrate new technologies with our existing technology base and manage all technical aspects of our military and civil infrastructure and water resources missions within the district. We are also responsible for implementing policy for architecture and are responsible for assuring all projects are value engineered.
The USACE Engineering & Construction Division's community is a key player and in many cases leading the way in new and exciting efforts addressing hurricane protection, military transformation, building information modeling, flood risk management and numerous other efforts of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
