Conti Federal Services, a leading U.S. government construction and engineering firm specializing in complex critical infrastructure, disaster response and recovery, and environmental remediation projects, has been awarded an $84,417,417 design-bid-build contract to construct hardened aircraft shelters and support facilities in Israel.
The project entails building eight hardened aircraft shelters and support facilities including administration buildings, auxiliary buildings, utilities tunnels, waste buildings, and associated site development work such as concrete taxiways, utility roads and signage. The contract was won in a competitive bid awarded by the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers (USACE) Europe District, and will support the Israeli Ministry of Defense under the Foreign Military Sales (FMS) agreement with the United States Government.
“When it comes to navigating complex, overseas military construction projects such as this, experience is everything,” said Mike Sziy, regional manager, Israel, Conti Federal. “Conti Federal has successfully completed more than a dozen complex construction projects for USACE Europe in Israel over the past decade, so we’re honored that they’ve entrusted us to execute yet another mission-critical project.”
Conti Federal has completed several similar complex military construction projects, including the construction of F-35 Hardened Aircraft Shelters, secure buildings, and hangars for the Israeli Air Force. Central to several of these projects’ success is Conti Federal’s Warrior LeanTM methodology, a construction management system that combined key principles of lean construction with maneuver warfare tactics to drive significant performance improvement on project planning and delivery.
The project is estimated to be completed in December 2023.
