    District Provides CENTCOM Commercial Real Estate Support Across the Middle East

    With over 70 years of history in the Middle East, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Transatlantic Middle East District (TAM) is not only able to offer their mission partners the engineering and construction expertise USACE is known for, but also a host of other niche services developed along the way. Many of these services were developed out of necessity by TAM to better accomplish its construction mission. As TAM developed that expertise in-house, it was obvious that they were able to offer that expertise to other partners in the region and create entirely new lines of operation.

    TAM Interior Designer Expands Project Management Skills

    Most of the people who work for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers are specialists. Beyond engineering, USACE employs a variety of experts in their field: lawyers, contracting specialists, safety managers and even divers in some cases. Project managers however, require generalization rather than specialization. Keeping projects that run into the hundreds of millions on schedule, within budget and meeting customer expectations means having oversight of budgets, schedules and hundreds of other moving parts. Deanna Hardy, an interior designer with the Transatlantic Middle East District, was recently given the opportunity to experience both sides of that dynamic when she was offered the opportunity to be the lead project manager on a building renovation in the district’s headquarters.
