Fort Shafter is the headquarters of the United States Army Pacific, commanding most Army forces in the Asia-Pacific region with the exception of Korea. It has been home to the senior Army headquarters in Hawaii since its opening in 1907. In 1921, the Hawaiian department moved to Fort Shafter from downtown Honolulu and in 1940, a new area was constructed for Signal Corps elements. Following the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, Fort Shafter became a busy headquarters and the barracks on Palm Circle were converted to offices. For the next half-century, it has remained the senior Army headquarters for the Asia-Pacific Region. In 1974, the headquarters was removed and Fort Shafter became home to US Army Support Command, Hawaii and the US Army Corps of Engineers, Pacific Ocean Division. Currently, Fort Shafter remains the central location for command, control, and support of Army forces in the Asia-Pacific region.
In the spring of 2018, the third phase of the Command and Control Facility (C2F) construction began. The project included the construction of administrative and special use spaces divided into specified security zones. The estimated cost of the construction was approximately $250 – $300 million. In April of 2018, Portland Bolt provided the anchor bolts required for this project. The anchor bolt configuration consisted of rods with threads on each end with associated hardware including square anchor plates. The anchor bolt grade required was ASTM F1554 Grade 36 and all of the hardware was hot-dip galvanized due to the corrosive environment. The project was federally funded, so all of the hardware supplied was 100% melted and manufactured in the U.S.A.
