Sundt employees Tim and Jeremy Fegan deliver the bulletin board to the local YMCA. They will return soon to hang it once the right location has been chosen.
Sundt employees working on the company’s federal construction projects are always looking for ways – big and small – to help out military families. Two Sundt team members assigned to a barracks construction project at Fort Campbell, Ky., did just that recently by delivering a brand new bulletin board to the local Armed Services (AS) YMCA. The item had been ordered for the Fort Campbell project but was slightly scratched and therefore couldn’t be used, so the pair rescued it and immediately thought of a place where it would be appreciated.
“As with many non-profits, the ASYMCA has a limited budget and would probably never purchase this kind of item,” said Sundt Field Engineer Jeremy Fegan. “It will be a nice addition to their facility.”
We hope you can find a way to recognize others today, particularly those who have served our country.

Sundt project superintendent Richard Osendorf and his wife Miranda helped serve the pancake breakfast.
Sundt employees working on a $21.5 million barracks construction project at Fort Campbell, Ky., volunteered their time and cooking skills on a recent Saturday morning at the monthly Fort Campbell Armed Services YMCA pancake breakfast. The volunteers arrived early to help prepare the breakfast, which was attended by about 60 kids and their parents, and then stayed afterward to help clean up.
“We made both chocolate chip and regular pancakes, heated up sausages, assisted with set-up and then took down of all the chairs, tables and equipment,” said Sundt Project Administrator Pauline Dravet. “There was a lot of wiping syrup from the chairs afterward!”
Sundt is constructing an Unaccompanied Enlisted Personnel Housing (UEPH) barracks at Fort Campbell that will accommodate up to 244 soldiers. The design-build, federal government construction project features two, 45,000-square-foot buildings containing two-bedroom, one-bathroom units. Sundt’s contract also involves the construction of supporting facilities and infrastructure across the 4.4-acre site including utilities, paving, sidewalks, information systems, storm drains and site improvements.

Sundt Project Administrator Pauline Dravet helped deliver the cabinets to the volunteer/donations coordinator from Sanctuary, Inc.
Sundt employees working on the company’s federal construction projects at Fort Campbell, Ky., and Fort Polk, La., recently made a helpful donation to Sanctuary, Inc., an area nonprofit organization that serves victims of rape, sexual assault and domestic violence. When the teams ended up with a surplus of brand new kitchen cabinets that couldn’t be installed in their projects, they looked around to find a good use for them in the community. After a few phone calls, they discovered that Sanctuary, Inc., was in the process of remodeling several of its safe houses and had an immediate need for materials.
“When we called Sanctuary, Inc., to see if they could use the cabinets, the answer was an enthusiastic ‘yes,’” said Pauline Dravet, Sundt project administrator. “We wrapped, loaded and delivered the cabinets to their volunteer/donations coordinator within just a couple of days. With another construction company, these cabinets could just as easily have ended up in some project superintendent’s garage, but Sundt did the right thing by finding a good use for them.”
Sundt is constructing a $21.4 million Unaccompanied Enlisted Personnel Housing (UEPH) complex at Fort Campbell. The project will accommodate up to 244 soldiers when it is complete. Our Fort Polk project consists of a $17.7 million Warrior in Transition barracks that will house 112 personnel.

Sundt is constructing a Joint Strike Fighter Auxiliary Landing Field at Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Yuma, Ariz., that will provide training space for Marine F-35B pilots. The F-35B – the principal aircraft supporting Marine Corps reconnaissance and combat missions around the world – has short takeoff, vertical landing and stealth capabilities.
The $24.3 million federal construction project was awarded to Sundt in part because of its success on a recently completed flight simulator facility for the F-35B, also at the MCAS Yuma. Sundt’s scope of work includes constructing the 198,756-square-foot landing field and 72,990-square-foot aircraft direct fueling station. Additional support facilities also being built by Sundt are air operations space, three separate landing helicopter deck replicas and connecting roads and infrastructure.
The project began last June will be complete this summer.
The interior work was the most complex part of the project due to sound attenuation requirements stemming from the facility’s classified status. The building includes 27 different wall types with varying thicknesses and compositions.
Sundt has completed a sophisticated training facility for the F-35B, the principal aircraft supporting Marine Corps reconnaissance and combat missions around the world. Located at Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Yuma, Ariz., it is the second facility of its kind in the United States, and the first west of the Mississippi River.
The F-35B is a joint-strike-fighter (JSF) aircraft with short takeoff, vertical landing and stealth capabilities. Sundt’s $19.1 million federal construction contract included construction of six full-mission and six deployable-mission flight simulators for the F-35B, which replicate real-world missions while saving on fuel and aircraft maintenance costs. The 43,000-square-foot facility includes mission briefing and de-briefing rooms, classrooms, equipment storage space, administrative offices and a library.
Sundt has been selected for another project at MCAS Yuma: a Joint Strike Fighter Auxiliary Landing Field (ALF) that will enable Marine F-35B pilots to practice vertical takeoffs and landings. The $24.3 million project was awarded to Sundt in part because of its success on the JSF simulator facility.
