GrayEagleCox Construction has broken ground on a new training facility for the General Atomics-built MQ-1C Gray Eagle unmanned aerial system in California under a $26 million contract with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Los Angeles District, the Army reported Jan. 14.

A groundbreaking ceremony took place at the site Jan. 12 with district and service branch officials for the construction project in attendance at National Training Center in Fort Irwin, California.

“This project is one that will make a significant contribution to the National Training Center’s ability to conduct tough and realistic training,” said Col. Kirk Gibbs, Los Angeles District commander.

The 52,000-square-foot facility will house repair shops, aircraft container storage, hangar, vehicle parking areas and administration offices.

The company expects to complete construction work in fall 2017, according to the report.
