Black & Veatch Wins Stake of $249M U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Contract in Europe

Projects planned in 5 countries latest in company’s century-old
work with U.S. military

OVERLAND PARK, Kan.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Black & Veatch, a global leader in critical infrastructure development
and engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services, announces
its winning of a share of a five-year, $248.6 million contract for
Architect and Engineering Services to support the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers (USACE) growing missions in five European countries.

The U.S. Department of Defense has made public that Black & Veatch is
among six firms that will provide design, engineering, planning,
environmental, and construction inspection services for projects at
military sites in Germany, Poland, Czech Republic, Belgium and the
Netherlands. The Army
Corps’ Germany-based Europe District
will support military
construction (MILCON), sustainment restoration and modernization (SRM),
European infrastructure consolidation (EIC), and European Deterrence
Initiative (EDI) missions in the contract area of responsibility (AOR)
under the indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contracts,
which run through March 2024.

The federal team of Black & Veatch, whose work with the U.S. military
dates to the construction of Camp
in the nation’s preparation for World War I, has focused on a
range of government services – from resilience preparation to energy
mandate compliance and resource efficiency. Threat monitoring, essential
defense technology infrastructure and the application of innovative
private sector solutions to government infrastructure programs are also
among key growth opportunities for the business.

“For more than a century, we’ve served federal and military clients in
projects that support their missions around the globe, and we’re
committed to continue doing that effective, timely work in Europe,” said
Randy Castro, a retired U.S. Army major general serving as president of
Black & Veatch’s federal business.
