JOPLIN, Mo. — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers today awarded a $1 million contract to Hunter Modular Construction Company Inc., a SBA certified, woman-owned, Hub-Zone small business, based out of Jonesburg, Mo., for modular facilities to be used as a temporary school.

The contract, in the amount of $1,066,939.66, is for the supply and installation of modular facilities for a temporary school for Duquesne Elementary School at the Duenweg Campus, located at 202 Malloy Circle in Duenweg.

USACE is managing the construction of temporary critical structures in Joplin as part of the federal government’s unified national response following the tornado which struck the city May 22. These facilities are for use while longer term repairs are made or more permanent replacement structures are built.

The critical public facilities mission, assigned by FEMA, can include constructing temporary fire stations, schools and medical facilities.
