March 17 (UPI) -- Britain's Amec Foster Wheeler has been awarded a prime position on a contract to sustain and improve U.S. Air Force and other U.S. Department of Defense installations worldwide.
The five-year contract from the U.S. Air Force Civil Engineer Center has a maximum aggregate value of $950 million for all awardees.
"We are honoured to receive this contract, which is a testament to our proud history of successfully delivering on AFCEC projects for more than 25 years and builds upon our strategy to increase our work with the DOD," said Ann Massey, president of Amec Foster Wheeler's Environment & Infrastructure business, said in a press release.

Under the contract, the company will compete for design-build and design-bid-build task orders for new construction, renovation, site work, demolition, and emergency response in environments that can be remote and challenging.
