The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Europe has requested bids for the construction of a massive underground bunker facility.
It’s no secret that such bunkers exist throughout the United States as a contingency for emergencies and disasters that may involve anything from nuclear war to a breakdown in social order. What makes this particular request so interesting is that the facility will be built at an Israeli Air Force base just outside of Tel Aviv, Israel.
Even more noteworthy than it’s location is the facility’s name.
As reported by the Washington Post, the facility has been curiously dubbed “Site 911.”
Other than indicating the facility will have an auditorium and some classroom facilities, the government’s true purpose for the highly classified Site 911 remains a mystery.
It will encompass over 127,000 square feet, have five levels below ground, and cost somewhere between $25,000,000 and $100,000,000 to build.
The Corps of Engineers’ solicitation for companies to bid on the construction project in Israel is available for viewing at the government’s Federal Business Opportunities website.
According to the request, bidding will end by December 3, 2012, with construction to be completed no later than 900 days from a tentative approval date scheduled for the end of 2012.
Security requirements are strict, with only companies from Israel, the United States, and a handful of others allowed to submit bids or workers, and approved US security clearances required to enter the construction area.
