AECOM Wins Contract to Modernize US Air Force Academy Campus

Dallas-headquartered AECOM announced it has been awarded a sole-source indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract to provide master planning, architecture and engineering services to the United States Air Force Academy. The deal calls for the delivery of multi-disciplined planning and conceptual designs in support of USAFA’s efforts to approach the campus in a consistent and efficient manner, including new buildings and systems that integrate sustainable best practices and conservation of natural resources, AECOM said Wednesday.

In a statement, AECOM said that it will harness its experience in higher education, historic preservation, and facilitating and supporting infrastructure design to create a master plan for the future development of the USAFA campus. The envisioned strategic plan will encompass data and spatial analysis, visualization of planning efforts, creation of district and sustainability component plans, environmental services, historic preservation recommendations and conceptual cost estimating, the company added.

Sean Chiao, chief executive of AECOM’s global Buildings + Places business, said his company understands the important historical context necessary to develop modern designs that respect and complement the campus’ heritage. He said AECOM intends to deliver a visually compatible, functional and flexible campus with a focus on innovation, sustainability and technological best practices.

The contract will see AECOM providing master planning, facility assessments, environmental services, airfield designs and building renovations. Slated for renovation are the iconic and historic Cadet Chapel, Sijan Hall, Kettle Creek Dam and the new Madera Cyber Innovation Center.

The USAFA is the youngest of the five U.S. military service academies, having only been established in 1954.
