TYNDALL AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. -- The Air Force will host the first Industry Day for the Tyndall Air Force Base rebuild at Florida State University, Panama City, Fla., on January 31, 2019, from 8:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.

This “state of the installation” presentation will inform the Air Force’s potential partners in industry and elected officials of the condition of Tyndall and the goal to develop an installation for a 21st Century Air Force. It is also a forum for answering questions and exchanging ideas, said Col. Scott Matthews, Tyndall program management office director.

"It's going to require partnership to rebuild Tyndall; it will take the government, industry, big business, small and medium-size business,” said Matthews, whose office will oversee the planning and rebuild of Tyndall. “The work that lies in front of us is extensive, but our office will ensure the Air Force has a 21st century installation to carry out the missions of today and the future.”

Planned speakers for the event will include the Honorable John Henderson, assistant secretary of the Air Force for installations, environment and energy; Terry Edwards, Air Force Civil Engineer Center director; Col. Brian Laidlaw, commander, 325th Fighter Wing; and Amy Vandeveer, AFCEC subject matter expert for installation planning.

The scope and timeline of the Tyndall rebuild presents a unique challenge for the Air Force that Vandeveer believes can be solved by bringing in industry early-on in the process.

“In the Department of Defense we typically do one or two construction projects per year on a single installation. We’re now looking at how to do construction on a massive scale in a very short period of time and want industry to help us do so in the best way available,” said Vandeveer. “We hope that our partners in industry will help us discover what’s possible for Tyndall.”
