WTCD Investigation: The Pentagon Renovation Project

gretavo's picture

It's becoming more clear as time passes that the planes on 9/11 were secondary to the destruction they are alleged to have been solely responsible for. Since we at WTCD know very well that in the case of the World Trade Center the destruction was the result of pre-planted explosives, it stands to reason that we should consider that the same might be true for the Pentagon.

That just as with the WTC, the "planes narrative" in the case of the Pentagon--including the alleged hijackings and the subsequent debates about every other aspect of their flight--were intended all along to serve as a distraction from the much more salient question of what (non-plane stuff) was destroyed. In the case of the WTC we know of the various case files stored in building 7 by the SEC, and in the case of the Pentagon we have briefly touched on the fact that the destruction (and deaths) disproportionately affected auditors and accountants. We also know that:

More than half of the people listed as missing in the aftermath of the attack worked in the Pentagon's Naval Command Center, the enlarged rectangle above. Personnel were moved into this facility shortly before the attack. Were personnel in the Naval Command Center targeted by the attack?

In his book 9-11--Coup Against America author Peter Tiradera suggests that the Navy Command Center may have been targeted to destroy evidence of U.S. Navy spy for Israel Jonathan Pollard's crimes, particularly those linked to prominent neocons. Interestingly, Jonathan Pollard's defense attorney was none other than Ted Olson, husband of AA77 "victim" Barbara Olson.

It is clear that the renovation of Wedge 1, completed in February 2001, would have provided an ideal cover for the placement of explosives throughout the part of the structure that would be hit on 9/11. It is imperative therefore for the truth movement to learn as much as possible about this renovation--who exactly was involved? What kind of security protocols were in place?

UPDATE (copied from original comment below)

This is from 2004, but it looks like the original project was also a joint venture of 3D/International which was acquired by Parsons Commercial Tech Group, Inc. (http://www.parsons.com/infra/education/default.asp) on June 8, 2006 and DMJM Harris, which was acquired by AECOM (http://www.aecom.com/)on January 26, 2010.

WASHINGTON, D.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 30, 2004

3D/I today announced that Joseph J. Sacco, AIA, has been named Deputy Director for the DMJM-3D/I Joint Venture supporting the Pentagon Renovation and Construction Program Office (PenRen) in Arlington, Va.

Mr. Sacco comes to the Pentagon with first hand PenRen experience. Prior to serving the last few years in the Office of the Architect of the Capitol as the Project Manager for the new Capitol Visitor Center in Washington, D.C., Sacco was a Project Administrator for PenRen. While there, he distinguished himself as a leader in acquisition reform efforts holding open discussions with industry and establishing a new design-build delivery system using true performance based requirements, commissioning, award fee incentives and cost indexing.

Jerry Raeder, AIA, 3D/I's East Regional Manager and Chairman of the Joint Venture, noted "The Pentagon Renovation Program is one of 3D/I's most significant program management projects. Selecting the right person for the Deputy role was critical. Joe will be a terrific asset to PenRen and to 3D/I."

The DMJM-3D/I Joint Venture has provided supporting leadership and management to the Pentagon Renovation Program and Construction Management Office since 1992. That office is responsible for all planning, budgeting, design, construction, swing space management, personnel moves, furniture, demolition, abatement, and other activities involved with the total renovation of the 6.5M square foot historic Pentagon building. 3D/I, in joint venture with DMJM, provides design, program and construction management support to the Pentagon Renovation Program, delivering the efficient and effective performance of these activities.

The Pentagon Project

Abstract: The renovation of the Pentagon, now under way, is one of the most ambitious, complex, and challenging construction undertakings in contemporary history. It entails the equivalent of demolishing the interiors of three buildings the size of the Empire State Building, refurbishing them from top to bottom without disturbing the occupants or disrupting their work, and completing the renovation on a strict budget of $1.2 billion. The initial phases of the renovation were addressed using standard design/bid/build (D/B/B) contracting. This method proved inefficient in the face of the logistical challenges of a project of this magnitude; there were about 800 change orders for the first section of the basement renovation alone. It became clear that a major shift in government construction stance and practices was needed, and design-build practices were instituted for the remainder of the renovation. As the renovation of the Pentagon progressed, new design elements and unforeseen site conditions surfaced, including more than 75,000 mi (120,675 m²) of largely undocumented wiring, piping, and cables. The construction is progressing wedge by wedge through the structure. The tenants of the first renovated wedge moved in on February 22, 2001; the rest of the renovation will span 20 years.
