Engineering Directorate

Huntsville Center provides several programs through the Engineering Directorate. Its Medical Facilities Mandatory Center of Expertise partners with Corps of Engineers Districts and Divisions to provide expertise for design and construction of medical facilities for DoD, other federal agencies and foreign governments.

Huntsville Center also develops medical design and construction policies, technical guidance, procedures, criteria, specifications and standards. The Center manages the project from initiation through 35 percent design.

The Environmental Program provides project design and environmental services focusing on investigations and remediation at DoD Superfund level CERCLA (Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act) and BRAC sites.
