KCI to Renovate Barracks, Other Facilities at Fort Leonard Wood, MO
KCI Construction Co. in St. Louis, MO won a $20.7 million firm-fixed-price design-build contract to renovate 3 existing 3-story barracks, a dining hall and a battalion headquarters building at the US Army’s Fort Leonard Wood in Missouri.
Fort Leonard Wood is the home of the US Army Maneuver Support Center of Excellence, the US Army Engineering School, Military Police School, and Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) School, the Third Basic Combat Training Brigade, and Joint Training Detachments from the US Marine Corps, US Navy and US Air Force.
Under the contract, KCI will provide all analyses, design, procurement, installation, plant, labor, equipment, materials, and transportation and perform all required work…
KCI will reconfigure each existing barracks to increasing the capacity to 240 soldiers, and will build a 3-story addition to each barracks that will add 960 square feet per floor.
The dining hall project will provide food service for soldiers and is intended to be functionally and technically similar to cafeterias and restaurants in the private sector community surrounding the fort. The battalion headquarters building project will provide classroom space and administrative services.
KCI expects to complete the renovations by June 23/10. Bids were solicited on the web with 10 bids received by the US Army Corps of Engineers Kansas City District in Kansas City, MO (W912DQ-10-C-4002).
