CH2M will once again provide planning and design services for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Mobile District, civil works program.
Over the past seven years, CH2M has assisted the Mobile District with a wide variety of projects including coastal restoration and planning, ecosystem planning and design, water resources planning and design services for civil works and environmental projects.
The Mobile District’s civil works program covers projects related to flood risk management, ecosystem restoration, hurricane and storm damage reduction, navigation and operation and maintenance in Alabama, Florida, Georgia and Mississippi, with possible work for customers in South or Central America and other locations.
According to the Corps, CH2M is the only consultant, of four previous awardees, successfully reselected for the indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract.
“The success of USACE Mobile District’s civil works mission is centered on protecting people and assets and offering long-term resilience,” said CH2M USACE Account Manager, Stephen Browning. “Achieving this success starts with implementing integrated inland and coastal civil works solutions, and we’re honored to continue putting these solutions in place.”
Under the IDIQ contract, CH2M will continue providing all types of civil works related engineering services including:
- Flood damage and risk reduction, coastal erosion, and storm damage risk reduction and beach nourishment;
- Shoreline and stream bank erosion protection, shallow and deep draft navigation, and environmental and ecosystem habitat restoration;
- Wetland, fish and wildlife mitigation evaluations, comprehensive watershed evaluations, environmental impact studies and multi-purpose water resources projects.
CH2M will develop inland and coastal solutions for the 96,000-square-mile civil works program, which includes navigation within four major inland waterways and the intracoastal canal providing over 2,200 miles of navigation, seven deep-water harbors and 21 shallow draft ports.
The civil works program also represents one of the largest recreation programs in the nation, with 27 lakes and 464 recreation and nature areas, which welcomed over 34.1 million visitors last year.
