FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (PRWEB) October 25, 2007
Two of the projects, valued at $12 million and $19.8 million respectively, are for additional Overhead Coverage Systems at Coalition Forces and U.S. Government facilities in Iraq. A Perini led Team has designed and constructed more than 70 similar structures at seventeen different locations in Iraq since September 2005. These new awards bring Perini's Overhead Coverage Systems program to a total of more than $320 million.
The Overhead Coverage System consists of pre-engineered structures with double layer roofs, which are designed to protect personnel from incoming mortars and rockets. The Perini Team for this program includes Tetra Tech, Inc. of Pasadena, CA as the lead design firm, Butler Manufacturing Company of Kansas City, Missouri and Stanley Consultants of Muscatine, Iowa.
Perini recently received recognition from General David H. Petraeus, Commander of the Multi-National Force - Iraq, and Brigadier General Michael J. Walsh, Commander of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Gulf Region Division, for its role in providing protection for U.S. personnel with quality and timely construction services under this program.
In addition to the Overhead Coverage awards, Perini received two separate awards for upgrading infrastructure at Coalition Forces bases in northern Iraq. These awards are for the design and construction of water and fuel storage tanks valued at $ 20 million and $16.7 million, respectively. For these projects, Perini leads a team of specialized engineering firms; Tetra Tech, Inc. will design the water systems and Argus Consulting of Blue Springs, MO will design the fuel systems.
Perini has had extensive experience in the CENTCOM Area of Operations. It has successfully executed over $1 billion worth of fast-track design-build task orders, including projects at 15 Coalition bases in Iraq and at four Afghan National Army Brigade complexes in Afghanistan. Perini is pleased to continue supporting the U.S. government with its vital missions through the provision of quality construction services.
