professional technical and management support services for government

Under the task order, AECOM will provide design-build services to
complete the design and facility repairs at Little Rock Air Force Base.
Due to tornado damage that occurred during April 2011, repairs will be
made to seven buildings, including structural metal roofing replacement,

mechanical and electrical repairs.
The buildings include a 150,000-square-foot aircraft hangar, logistics
center, fire crash station, squadron operations facility and several

full recovery from the damage sustained during the storm.

and construction services. The contract, which was awarded during 2008
