MINNEAPOLIS, June 29 (UPI) -- The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has contracted Honeywell to provide security and energy-efficiency upgrades to federal buildings.
U.S. company Honeywell was among eight companies awarded a contract from the Army Corps of Engineers' Alabama-based Engineering and Support Center. Under the deal, Honeywell will install life safety and security systems at federal facilities in the United States and around the world.
