Directorate of Public Works

The Directorate of Public Works is the agency responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of Fort Stewart-Hunter Army Airfield’s garrison facilities, grounds and barracks. The directorate supervises the installation’s large land management forestry and its fish and wildlife programs. The DPW is divided into six major divisions: Business Operations/Integration, Engineering Services, Environmental, Housing, Master Planning, and Operations and Maintenance divisions.

Business Operations/Integration Division

The Business Operations and Integration Division is responsible for the annual work plan (prioritization and execution), integrated facilities system operation, General Fund Enterprise Business System (GFEBS), installation status report for infrastructure, A-76 contract quality assurance accounting and audit functions, and DPW Supply/Logistics operation. The DPW Supply/Logistics operation provides issue/turn-in and repair support for UPH barracks furnishings and appliances.

For repair of barracks furniture, call 912-767-5989/3191.

Government Property Administration oversight is provided to ensure all government-furnished equipment/property issued to the operations and maintenance contractor is accounted for by the contractor. BOID is also responsible for coordinating DPW support to the installation and division for deployment/redeployment, disasters and exercises.

Crisis Management Team members are provided for staffing of the Emergency Operation Center/Installation Emergency Operation Center during emergencies and disasters.

Nonroutine requirements (major repairs exceeding service order limits of $2,000 and all new construction) must be submitted to DPW on a Work Order Request (DA Form 4283) either through the DPW Web page, or hand carried to Building 1103 (Stewart) or Building 1003 (Hunter). To check the current status of IJOs for Stewart and Hunter, call 912-767-9871 or 912-767-7619.

Engineering Division

Engineering Division is responsible for providing services to include professional engineering, project management, architectural expertise and construction administration to the director of Public Works and Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield in support of the 3rd Infantry Division and tenant activities for the maintenance, repair and construction of real property facilities.

The division provides architectural, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and environmental design services for new construction and upgrades to facilities and infrastructure throughout Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield.

Facilities include all new buildings such as administrative buildings, tactical equipment shops, barracks and commercial buildings. Projects

also include special structures such as dining facilities, fitness centers, fire stations, training ranges and pools. In addition to building structures, the division is responsible for design and maintenance projects for roads, railroads, tank trails, bridges and airfields to enable Soldier training and deployments.

Other responsibilities include maintaining geospatial data for all buildings, roads and utilities on Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield, and providing specialized post maps for various uses such as safety, construction projects, utilities and grounds maintenance.

Environmental Division

The Environmental Division is responsible for developing and implementing the installation’s environmental programs through compliance with all environmental laws and regulations, preventing pollution, and protecting, conserving, optimizing and sustaining our natural and cultural resources for our Soldiers, civilians, families, neighbors and communities.

The Stewart-Hunter Environmental Division is comprised of three branches: Prevention & Compliance, Fish and Wildlife, and Forestry, while coordinating and providing oversight to the installation’s integrated Sustainability Management System (SMS). The SMS’s current focus areas are threatened and endangered species management, solid waste management and water conservation. Stewart-Hunter is the first Department of Defense “Keep America Beautiful” affiliate and has a robust recycling program supporting the installation and our surrounding counties.

Major program areas that make up the Prevention & Compliance Branch are air, drinking water, stormwater and wastewater quality, remediation, landfill compliance, recycling, spill response, pollution prevention, wetlands and cultural resources. The branch oversees operational and administrative compliance of the numerous Stewart-Hunter state-permitted facilities and its vast wetland and cultural resources while promoting pollution prevention and sustainability.

Fort Stewart’s Natural Resource Management Branch (forestry program) is one of the largest timber-producing and prescribed burning programs in DOD. Fort Stewart is also home to the largest remaining acreage of the longleaf pine-wiregrass ecosystem in Georgia. Notable accomplishments include support of the training mission and improvement of the training environment, reforestation, endangered species habitat enhancement and commercial forestry, which helps fund the program and support the local economy. The success of Fort Stewart’s forestry program can be measured by the installation’s immensely valuable timber resources and excellent training environment.

The Fish and Wildlife Management Program is responsible for managing all fish and wildlife species and their habitats on Fort Stewart, conducting wildlife population monitoring, and reviewing all proposed actions for potential impacts to fish, wildlife and their habitat. Fort Stewart is home to six wildlife species that are protected by the Endangered Species Act. These species are the red-cockaded woodpecker, eastern indigo snake, flatwoods salamander, wood stork, shortnose sturgeon, Atlantic sturgeon and smooth coneflower. The installation carries out conservation programs to help recover these species while continuing to support the training mission.

Master Planning Division

The Master Planning Division provides the direction for the orderly development and sustainment of the real property assets of the installation. The planning process follows the professional practice of community and military planning, providing the installation with the vision and framework for long- and short-term real property development. The Real Property Master Plan consists of five components: the long-range component, the Installation Design Guide, the capital investment strategy, the short-range component and the Real Property Digest.

The Real Property Digest is the overarching component of the Real Property Master Plan and guides the scope of the plan. The long-range component contains focused, detailed planning strategies that guide the long-range use of land and facilities on the installation. It is a broad-based area analysis of the entire installation over a period of 20 years.

The Installation Design Guide prescribes the urban design and character of the installation. The capital investment strategy contains the holistic set of actions needed to create the Real Property Vision. It focuses on strategies to integrate current demands with long-term facility needs, based on assessments of excesses and deficits. The short-range component marks the transition from planning to programming and provides a list of projects planned over the next seven years.

This process allows the Army and the installation to prioritize its limited resources; optimizes mission accomplishment through the best use of land, facilities and infrastructure; balances development and the need for environmental stewardship; provides strategies for antiterrorism and critical infrastructure protection; reduces manpower and resources; encourages sustainable development; and supports changes in the force structure. Additionally, it informs design and construction agents on the desired type of development and encourages development in the most suitable areas.

Operations and Maintenance Division

The Operations and Maintenance Division is responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of Fort Stewart and Hunter Airfield installation nonfamily facilities, grounds and utilities to include barracks, company and battalion headquarters, library, dining facilities, gyms, motor pools, storage buildings, parking lots, streetlights, stormwater drainage, roads, grass cutting, refuse collection and the utilities systems. The division is divided into two branches: Operations and Contract Management.

The Operations Branch provides the quality assurance of the contracted OM workforce. TSAY/Ferguson and Williams is the current contractor and has responsibility for maintaining and operating the installations’ facilities. A service order desk is operated to allow installation’s personnel to call in requests for maintenance or repair of their facilities. A service order is for repair of existing facilities that can be done for less than $2,000 in less than 40 hours. If the work requested is new work or will exceed these limits, an Individual Job Order must be initiated. The service order desk will determine if an IJO is needed based on discussion with the caller.

The service order desk telephone numbers are 912-767-2883 for Fort Stewart and 912-315-4003 for Hunter. The Contract Management Branch is responsible for oversight of the DPW’s service contracts such as port-o-lets, excavation permits, traffic signal, railroad repairs, electrical privatization and utility purchases. An excavation permit is needed prior to digging on the installations. The phone numbers for excavation permits information is 811. Many training evolutions require port-o-lets to meet the users’ needs. For information, the number is 912-767-6239. The exterior electrical utility system, i.e., power lines, transformers and streetlights, is the responsibility of Canoochee Electric Membership Cooperative. To report an emergency or an outage, the number is 912-459-1112.
