Isaul Garcia, a resident construction manager with the Air Force Civil Engineer Center, shows the space in which it was discovered that a subcontractor of Balfour Beatty Construction failed to install fire protection paneling in 77 units of Tinker base housing to Oklahoma Senator James Inhofe and Acting Secretary of the Air Force Matthew Donovan. Inhofe and Donovan, along with the Honorable John Henderson, Assistant Secretary of the Air Force and members of the Senate Armed Services Committee, toured base housing at Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma, Oct. 1 to learn more about continuing issues concerning mold, fire protection paneling and disturbed asbestos. Inhofe, Donovan and Henderson, along with 72nd Air Base Wing Commander Col. Paul Filcek, addressed the way forward to solving these issues with Balfour Beatty Communities in a press conference today.
