The U.S. Air Force Civil Engineer Center has stood up a new division to centralize efforts to modernize the military service's multi-billion-dollar nuclear infrastructure portfolio.

The nuclear enterprise division will oversee construction and renovation work for the Ground-Based Strategic Deterrent and Weapons Generation Facilities programs, the Air Force said Tuesday.

The CFN division will be led by AFCEC's Col. Chris Stoppel and will work to ensure a more stringent oversight and management of the center's high-visibility and complex programs.

"[Having] one integrated office… will ensure [Air Force Global Strike Command] installations receive an integrated look from engineers in every stage of each project," explained James Hunsicker, a site activation task force lead within AFGSC.

Stoppel noted that CFN will provide an integrated focus, improved resource management and better transparency between partners to restructure the nuclear enterprise.

The CFN division was an initiative between AFCEC and AFGSC, the Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center and the Air Force Installation and Mission Support Center's Detachment 10.
