Stantec-Freese and Nichols JV Awarded Five-Year Contract for Water/Wastewater Projects by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

MOBILE, AL — Stantec and Freese and Nichols (Stantec-Freese and Nichols JV) have been awarded a five-year, $25-million multiple award task order contract for architecture and engineering services by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Mobile District. Stantec-Freese and Nichols JV will provide the district’s Water and Wastewater Technical Center of Expertise (WWTCX) with planning, design, and construction phase services.

Based in Mobile, Alabama, the WWTCX is a national center of expertise under the USACE Planning and Excellence Program. The center provides guidance to the entire Corps worldwide on potable water supplies; water treatment, storage, and distribution; and domestic and industrial water/wastewater collection, pumping, treatment, and disposal. Under this contract, the Stantec-Freese and Nichols JV team will provide the Mobile District and WWTCX with a full range of support services on water, wastewater, and civil works projects, including treatment processes and technologies, energy reduction and optimization, models of water and wastewater networks, pump stations, and other related systems.

“Water and wastewater treatment affects communities around the world, and as the population continues to grow, so too does the need for innovative thinking in the industry,” said Chris Williams, Senior Vice President for Stantec’s U.S. Federal Program. “We’re proud to support the Corps’ Water and Wastewater Technical Center of Expertise in its mission to deliver clean water at home and abroad.”

“Freese and Nichols has been dedicated throughout our 128-year history to providing the safe and effective water and wastewater systems that are vital for our communities and our national resilience,” said Thomas Haster, Chief Business Development Officer, Water, for Freese and Nichols. “We are excited to continue our strong partnership with the USACE to support its mission of continuously improving water and wastewater services.”
