Jacobs to renovate AFMC headquarters
Jacobs has received an IDIQ contract for architect and engineering services to renovate the US Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC) headquarters buildings at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio, the company announced on 4 April.
Awarded by the the US Army Corps of Engineers, the contract is worth up to $40 million over five years based on the significant renovation efforts required for more than 780,000 sq ft of headquarters space.
Under the contract, the company will incorporate cyber security and sustainable building principles to upgrade two facilities originally built in 1942 and 1964. Work will lower operation and maintenance costs along with providing optimal mission footprints for personnel.
The AFMC manages the research, development, acquisition, test and logistics services which keep the air force weapon systems and personnel ready for combat.
