Located in U.S. Army Garrison Humphreys, the Humphreys Area Office (HAO) is a premier construction team with over 72 dedicated professionals. Since the onset of various Korea relocation programs, HAO has been taking part in the construction of an entire city; the office has completed many notable and high-profile projects and is currently managing over 60 projects worth $1.25 billion. The construction is defined by multiple international agreements and partnerships that are unique to Korea. It bolsters high level of interest and active involvement from several commands.
HAO has an important mission in supporting the warfighting capabilities, contingency readiness, and improving the quality of life for soldiers, civilians and their families stationed in USAG-Humphreys. HAO manages many types of construction programs such as Operations and Maintenance Army (OMA), Military Construction (MILCON), Non-Appropriated Fund (NAF), and three host-nation funded constructions: Yongsan Relocation Program (YRP), Land Partnership Program (LPP), and Republic of Korea Funded Constructions (ROKFC In-Kind). A typical team is comprised of project engineers, construction-control representatives, negotiators, and administrative/engineer support professionals.
