Environmental planning supports transformation of US Army division
|Location:||Pennsylvania and Hawaii, US|
|Value:||(Project) US$5-6 million|
|Scope:||Environmental planning, range design|
|Date:||2002 – 2006|
Six army brigades across North America, including infantry divisions in Pennsylvania and Hawaii, were being transformed into Stryker Brigade Combat Teams (SBCTs). The SBCTs are designed to be rapid-response, technologically advanced units, trained in the use of the new Stryker armoured vehicles.
For this to be achieved, new training and support facilities were required which is needed to be built safely and with minimum disruption to the local environments and communities.
Our environmental services business, based in the US and UK and operates globally. We provided a full spectrum of environmental and engineering services at sites throughout Pennsylvania and Hawaii, to support the transformation.
These included wetlands delineation, natural and cultural resources studies, preparation of detailed environmental impact statements, hazardous waste investigations and training range design. We also used our expertise in range design to design specialist training and support facilities.
Through comprehensive, coordinated planning, investigation and consultation, we were able to ensure the long-term viability and sustainability of the new sites and support these US Army brigades in their transformation into new rapid-response units.
