“Merrick has had a long"standing presence in Texas”, said David Huelskamp, senior vice president for the firm. “We’ve recently completed the Basic Expeditionary Airmen Skills Training Complex located at Lackland Air Force Base (AFB), and are now involved in the planning and design of a $750 million Air Force Basic Military Training Complex to be located at Lackland as well”.

The contract was assigned by the Air Force Center for Engineering and the Environment (AFCEE) located at Brooks City"Base, San Antonio to multiple firms to provide professional services to the U.S. government for environmental, military construction, military family housing, and facility sustainment, restoration, and modernization projects worldwide.

David L. Yang will be the program manager for the office.
