Fort Stewart is among the federal installations covered by a new contract for master planning and geographic information systems awarded recently by the Army Corps of Engineers Savannah District.
Base Realignment and Closure planning information for a three-state area will be a principal product under the contract.
HNTB Federal Services Corp. received the three-year, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract with the Corps' Savannah District.
HNTB will serve as the prime consultant on the project, providing master planning, geographic information services, engineering and architectural design, condition assessments, programming documentation, planning tours and utility studies for installations of the U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force in Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina. Specialty contractor Spatial Engineering will assist HNTB with geographic information services.
"Initial planning for Base Realignment and Closure locations is critical to help the USACE Savannah District find innovative ways to consolidate, realign, expand or find alternative uses for current facilities," HNTB project manager Joe LaVoie said. "This planning makes way for facilities that better match the changing force requirements outlined in the Army's transformation plan to meet threats and challenges of the 21st century."
This is an important contract for the USACE Savannah District since it covers BRAC activities for several of the most important military installations in the country, including U.S. Army posts Fort Benning, Fort Bragg, Fort Jackson and Fort Stewart, along with Shaw and Robins Air Force bases.
"We are eager to support the USACE Savannah District on a project of this scale and importance to our nation's armed services," LaVoie said.
HNTB is owned by the HNTB Companies, an employee-owned organization of infrastructure firms that work in transportation, bridges, aviation, architecture and urban design and planning.
