Construction projects some of best general says

The contractor added quality touches not required by the contract, like tile instead of epoxy on seats and floors and shower doors instead of cheap curtains at a new Afghan National Army installation, which according to Maj. Gen. Michael Eyre is some of the best construction he’s seen in Afghanistan. The Afghan National Army's 215th Combat Logistics Brigade will soon call these Camp Shorabak facilities home.

Due to the extreme remoteness of the site, the project was completed without USACE personnel visiting the site and instead, USACE relied on contracted, local Afghan engineering professionals (not affiliated with the construction firm) to submit photos, video, and other important status updates about the project. Unmanned aerial vehicle flyovers to obtain images of progress were also used.
