The US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Sacramento District has awarded a $110m contract to a joint venture (JV) of Stantec and Kleinfelder for architect-engineer civil works, dam safety and levee safety programme design services.
The JV will be designing and constructing USACE’s Civil Works projects across the USACE South Pacific Division.
Additionally, the firms will support projects for the military, military construction, interagency and international services, as well as hazardous, toxic and radioactive wastes.
The Kleinfelder-Stantec team will also support the delivery of critical flood risk management and dam safety projects in the area, environmental management and restoration, as well as response to natural and manmade disasters.
In addition, it will offer engineering and technical services to the US Army, the Department of Defense (Dod) and other federal agencies.
Stantec US Federal Program senior vice-president Chris Williams said: “In partnership with Kleinfelder, we’re incredibly excited to support USACE Sacramento on critical water infrastructure, flood risk management and dam safety projects across the region.
“Our collective team has deep expertise in the technical, regulatory and environmental compliance requirements necessary to design, build and maintain these key projects and we look forward to building on our longstanding partnership with USACE.”
Furthermore, the two firms will provide geotechnical investigation and design support for the Lower San Joaquin River Levee Improvement Project.
Last month, design and engineering firm Stantec was selected to provide engineering services for the $513.3m (A$695m) Edith Cowan University (ECU) City in Perth, Western Australia.
Stantec will be responsible for civil and structural engineering and building and traffic planning for the 60,000m² project.
