AECOM Wins $ 10.5 Million Order from U.S. Army

AECOM Technology Corporation, a provider of professional technical and management support services for government and commercial clients around the world, reportedly has won a $10.5 million order to provide energy-efficiency services at a U.S. Navy facility in San Diego.
Company officials said that the work, which will include a base-wide lighting retrofit, construction of two new ultra-efficient central chilled water plants, expansion of the existing energy-management-control system and the installation of a photovoltaic system, will be conducted under AECOM’s indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract with the U.S. Army Engineering and Support Center.
The contract has a maximum value of $50 million and lets AECOM compete for design-build, energy-efficiency and renewable-energy projects at any federal facility within the continental United States, Alaska, Hawaii, the District of Columbia, and U.S. territories and possessions.
According to company officials, the project when completed is expected to reduce the facility’s annual utility consumption by 4.7 million kilowatt hours, 48,000 thermos, and 10.3 million gallons of water, resulting in annual utility, operations and maintenance cost savings of more than $900,000.
The project will also eliminate more than 3,600 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions every year.
AECOM is a global provider of professional technical and management support services to a broad range of markets, including transportation, facilities, environmental, energy, water and government.
Earlier this month AECOM had announced that it has acquired SSI Services Inc. from the Vanadium Group.
With nearly 20 years of experience, SSI provides a wide array of services, including facility operations, maintenance and management; logistics support; and facility optimization analysis and planning, primarily to the U.S. federal as well as state and local governments. 

The acquisition strengthens AECOM’s service offerings in critical-mission environments such as federal facilities that have limited access, as well as strict safety and security requirements.
