As part of a five-year indefinite delivery contract (IDC) for the USACE, WSP will provide military design work for various projects—including preparation of design-bid-build and design-build packages—in Germany, Poland, the Czech Republic, Belgium and the Netherlands. In addition, WSP will perform programming and planning work, post construction award services, and building commissioning.
“This is the largest IDC ever for the USACE-Europe District,” said Charles Smith, program manager for this contract based in WSP’s Virginia Beach office. “It is anticipated that five awards will be made by the USACE under this contract, with a combined capacity of $248 million over the next 5 years.”
The design work will include major and minor new construction projects, as well as alteration, repair or rehabilitation of various structures.
Potential projects covered under the contract include airfields, railways, bulk fuel storage and petroleum, oil and lubricant facilities, munitions/ammunition and explosives storage, barracks, multi-family and single-family housing units, utility systems, medical facilities, administrative buildings, vehicle maintenance facilities, operation facilities and training complexes, operations/intelligence centers, military ranges and other U.S. military facilities.
“Our firm is ready to provide U.S. overseas military personnel with services necessary to help them achieve their objectives in this region,” Smith said. “With our enormous geographical presence, WSP is everywhere that the USACE needs us to be in Europe.”
Support may also include planning services such as comprehensive master plans, installation real property master planning, infrastructure assessments, planning and design charrettes, CAD/GIS mapping, systems analysis of existing facilities and infrastructure and cost estimates.
