AMEC awarded $7 million LEED renovation of Air Force civil engineering headquarters

12 October 2010


Pensacola, Fla., United States (12 October 2010) – AMEC, the international engineering and project management company, has been awarded a $7.1 million task order to renovate the Air Force Civil Engineer Support Agency’s headquarters building at Tyndall Air Force Base in Florida. The project will involve the upgrade of mechanical and electrical systems and other elements that will enable the building to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver certification.

Specifically, the project will involve the installation of a one-acre solar photovoltaic field, a new condenser water system, energy-efficient lighting and lighting-control system, plus the upgrade of fixtures to comply with Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. The task order also calls for the performance of an asbestos and lead-based-paint survey prior to the works starting.

AMEC’s winning proposal noted that the company has “extensive design/build experience, including green energy projects, for the Air Force and possesses the core skill sets to effectively execute this task order.” It added that the AMEC team includes structural and civil engineers, mechanical, electrical, geothermal consulting and testing professionals, and general trade contractors.

The proposal also stated that the work will be “carefully phased to minimize the impact to ongoing operations.”

Design work is set to begin this month and the project is scheduled for completion in September 2012.
