The U.S is assisting Israel to build secret underground sites .This information causes a wave of speculations around the world.
Last year it was announced the U.S. was looking to build a secret underground complex in Israel. On February 13 a contract was awarded to Conti Corp Federal Services in Edison, NJ to complete the project.
Their bid of almost $63 million came in well below the possible $100 million set aside for the project.
Conti’s bid went toward building five underground levels and six above ground buildings that they have 900 days from February 13 to complete.
The U.S. government then issued another request for proposal December 28 to construct Site 81 Phase II. Also in Israel, also partially underground, this project calls for up to $100,000,000 to refinish six underground facilities and some currently occupied surface buildings.
Walter Pincus from the Washington Post exposed the original Proposal construction project, called Site 911 in November last year.
That nearly $63 million project awarded to Conti can be built only by workers from specific countries with proper security clearances.
When complete the well-guarded compound will have five levels buried underground and six additional outbuildings on the above grounds, within the perimeter. At about 127,000 square feet, the first three floors will house classrooms, an auditorium, and a laboratory — all wedged behind shock resistant doors — with radiation protection and massive security.
Only one gate will allow workers entrance and exit during the project and that will be guarded by only Israelis.
The bottom two floors are smaller, according to the full line of schematics uploaded to the Army’s Acquisition Business Web Site, and possibly used for equipment and storage.
