dee Concrete

Typical Military Installations

dee's steel forms and accessories are used to construct critical support infrastructure for domestic and overseas facilities, established bases and conflict areas/war zones.


When U.S. forces are deployed to war zones or conflict areas basic infrastructure for operations is often non-existent or, at minimum, requires upgrading. Typically this work is performed by military operational groups: the US Airforce Red Horse Brigade, the US Navy SeaBees, the US Army Construction Battalions as well as other selected military contractors. dee Concrete's forms and accessories are relied upon to quickly construct infrastructure such as:

  • Airfield runways
  • Helicoptor pads
  • Building foundations
  • Drainage gutters
  • Roadways


Due to the extreme weight of heavy military vehicles (weight can range from 34,000 to 48,000 lbs.) they must be parked on reinforced concrete pads. dee has all of the products necessary to build these oversized parking pads for long and short term storage. Sample large wheeled vehicles include:

  • MRAPs (Mine Resistent Ambush Protected) combat vehicles
  • Supply trucks and trailers
  • Troop carriers
  • Mobile gun systems

Following are several examples of US military installations around the globe including a flight line, a parking pad, custom form sets, an airfield, a vehicle maintenance building foundation, and infrastructure work.

Flight Line

LOCATION Kunsan Air Base, South Korea
APPLICATION Barrier system on flight line


Pouring concrete into the wood forms at the Kunsan air base

Staff Sgt. Shawn Vanzandt pours cement at the barrier systerm on the flightline at Kunsan Air Base, South Korea.

Parking Pad

LOCATION Ebbing Air National Guard Base, Fort Smith, AR
APPLICATION Parking lot construction


Concrete parking lot construction at Ebbing National Guard Base

The 567th Rapid Engineers Deployable Heavy Operations Repair Squadron Engneers (RED HORSE) Squadron (RHS) replaced a gravel parking area with a concrete parking lot at Ebbing Air National Guard Base, Fort Smith, AK. Steel and wood forms like these are typically secured using dee's cold roll nail stakes.

Custom Form Sets

LOCATION Guam Naval Base
APPLICATION Overseas base work: wharf project
JOB DESCRIPTION Customized form sets were needed for major reconstruction work at the US Naval Base in Guam. Many different form lengths with custom dowel patterns needed to match forms on the opposing side of the form layout. dee welded sequential metal numbers onto every form end to prevent error in the assembly process.


LOCATION Bagrad Airforce Base, Afghanistan
APPLICATION Airfield and infrastructure work
JOB DESCRIPTION When the U.S. Military needed to expand their runways to support ongoing operations, dee suppled forms and accessories. Along with the new runways, helicopter landing pads were constructed as well as other base infrastructure work.

Vehicle Maintenance Building

LOCATION Joint Base, Balad, Israel
APPLICATION Foundation for vehicle maintenance building


US Seabees using steel paving forms to finish concrete foundation work for a vehicle maintenance building

US Navy 070423-N-6436W-024 Seabees from Naval Mobile Construction Batallion (NMCB) 4 and NMCB-28 work together to finish a concrete foundation using steel paving forms for a new vehicle maintenance building in Balad, Iraq.
