Balfour Beatty has been awarded a contract worth $57,795,000 (c.£42m) for the construction of a consolidated communication centre at Joint Base Andrews, Camp Springs.
The UK-based construction company will build the new Maryland-based communications centre as a singular structure.
The centre will be used by the US Air Force’s 89th, 744th, and 83rd Squadrons.
The demolition of two facilities, Buildings 1539 and 1558, will take place to allow for the construction of the new centre.
The contract contains five unexercised options, which if exercised would increase the cumulative contract value to $61,738,711 (c.£44.7m).
The options include providing audiovisual services; landscaping; water infiltration testing; air infiltration testing; and furniture, fixtures, and equipment.
The contract was competitively procured, with a total of six proposals received.
Work is set to be completed by August 2023.
