U.S. Navy

Overview

In addition to being the world's preeminent sea power, the Navy is also involved in massive civil engineering projects throughout the world. From city-sized bases to airfields to harbor facilities, the Navy spends billions of dollars yearly to support its high-tech force of ships, aircraft, support equipment, and personnel.

Each year the Navy completes hundreds of construction, renovation, maintenance, and building projects all over the world.
