Amec Foster Wheeler — which on Monday agreed to be bought by Aberdeen-based Wood Group for about £2.2 billion — said it won a contract with the US Air Force Civil Engineer Center (AFCEC) to sustain and improve Air Force and other US Department of Defense (DOD) installations worldwide.

The five-year contract has an aggregate maximum value of $950 million for the multiple firms involved.

“The worldwide engineering and construction contract places Amec Foster Wheeler in a prime position with the US Air Force for installations work,” said the company.

“Under the contract, Amec Foster Wheeler will compete for design-build and design-bid-build task orders for new construction, renovation, site work, demolition, and emergency response in environments that can be remote and challenging around the world.”

Ann Massey, Amec Foster Wheeler ‘s president, environment & infrastructure, said: “We are honoured to receive this contract which is a testament to our proud history of successfully delivering on AFCEC projects for more than 25 years and builds upon our strategy to increase our work with the DOD.”
