Parsons has secured a position on a utility monitoring and control systems (UMCS V) contract through the US Army Corps of Engineers Engineering and Support Center.

The indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract has been awarded to seven companies, including Parsons. The selection extends the company’s 30-year legacy with the programme.

The multiple-award contract has a total ceiling value of $1.2bn.

Under this programme, the company will be responsible for the design, procurement, installation, and maintenance and service.

The programme also includes heating, ventilating and air-conditioning (HVAC) equipment, chiller / boiler system controls integration, fire alarm and protection systems, as well as supervisory control and data acquisition systems.

Also included in the contract are life safety control systems, chemical, biological and radiological contaminant detection, filtration and response, utility metering, and other automated control systems.

Parsons will incorporate quality, affordable, and cyber-secure products and technical solutions into the facilities.

Parsons converged solutions programme director Dan Rucker said: “Parsons has provided high-quality, unique solutions under multiple iterations of the contract, beginning with the inception of the contract vehicle, UMCS 1.

“We look forward to continue working with the US Army on increasing the sustainability and modernisation of their facilities.”

In September last year, the US Army Corps of Engineers awarded Parsons with a contract to perform repair works at Bucholz Army Airfield on Kwajalein Atoll in the Republic of the Marshall Islands.

The firm-fixed-price project delivery was valued $139m and had an expected ceiling valued at $229m if all options were exercised.

Under the contract, Parson was to replace airfield components such as runways, taxiways and parking aprons.
