In April 2008, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Norfolk District, awarded a military contract to Archer Western Contractors of Chicago, Illinois, to design and construct the Joint-Use Intelligence Analysis Facility (JUIAF) at Rivanna Station, VA. Rivanna Station is located just north of Charlottesville, VA, in Albemarle County, and is a sub-installation of Fort Belvoir, VA.
The JUIAF houses analytical functions of the Defense Intelligence Agency, a Department of Defense combat support agency, and the National Ground Intelligence Center, a component organization of the U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command. The JUIAF was constructed on a 46-acre site, acquired by the Army in 2006, on the grounds of Rivanna Station, and comprises between 168,000 and 170,500 gross square feet, has a designed occupancy of 1,000 people and parking for 625 vehicles.
As a sub-consultant to Michael Baker, Jr., Inc., Timmons Group provided civil engineering, surveying and environmental permitting services and construction administration. The Design-Build Contractor was Archer Western Contractors.
