CH2M Hill Contractors in Chantilly, VA won a $25.7 million firm-fixed-price contract to build a communications facility at Camp Arifjan in Kuwait.
The contractor expects to complete the work by Nov 30/11. 59 bids were solicited with 15 bids received by the US Army Corps of Engineers’ Transatlantic Programs Center (TAC) in Winchester, VA (W912ER-09-C-0046).
Camp Arifjan is a US Army base located south of Kuwait City…
Camp Arifjan accommodates elements of the US Air Force, US Navy, US Marine Corps and US Coast Guard, as well as a number of US Army National Guard units. Military personnel from the UK, Australia, Romania and Poland are also forward deployed there.
Camp Arifjan is used as a forward logistics base, Aviation Classification and Repair Activity Depot (Task Force AVCRAD), helicopter ground support base, and as a motor pool for armored and unarmored vehicles. US military vehicles that did not receive additional armor plating in the United States prior to deployment to US Central Command (USCENTCOM) received their “up-armoring” at Camp Arifjan, according to Wikipedia.
The US Army Corps of Engineers’ Transatlantic Programs Center, which oversees construction at Camp Arifjan, is responsible for:
- Designing and building facilities for deployed US forces in the USCENTCOM area of operations, administering a logistics services contract that supports US Army Europe’s forces in the Balkans, and managing operations and maintenance services for various military customers;
- Designing and building projects under Foreign Military Sales programs;
- Providing specialized services to other US government agencies working in the region, such as the US Agency for International Development and the Millennium Challenge Corporation; and
- Providing stateside engineering and support services for Corps of Engineers operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.
