U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Europe Awards CDM Smith $91 Million Design-Bid-Build Contract

April 28, 2020

ISRAEL—CDM Smith was recently selected by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Europe District for the new construc­tion of eight hardened aircraft shelters, support facilities and infra­struc­ture in Israel. Valued at $91 million, this design-bid-build project will be delivered over 2 years, and also includes construc­tion of roads, taxiways, shelter buildings, auxiliary facilities, a pumping station and sewage power line, and underground utilities. CDM Smith will complete all construc­tion, commis­sion­ing, training, and delivery of as-built drawings, O&M Manuals and a Warranty Plan. 

This is CDM Smith’s sixth and largest project with USACE in support of the U.S. Foreign Military Sales program in Israel. As demon­strated through our past work in Israel, the CDM Smith team brings innovative thinking, technical skill, close working rela­tion­ships and strong commu­ni­ca­tion with subcon­trac­tors and suppliers, as well as a proactive approach to safety, and dedication to quality and on-time delivery. 

“A project of this magnitude is very complex with so many inter-related sequencing challenges around every piece of the schedule,” said Nick Maxin, CDM Smith vice president and project controls manager. “With input from all partners, we considered everything from workflow, transit time of materials, queuing of truck deliveries, steel instal­la­tion and rein­force­ment.” The detailed execution plan will be supported by our CDM Smith’s Tel Aviv office, which was established in 2015 to support this USACE program. 

“We are very pleased to continue working with the Army Corps to execute this important program for the United States,” said Jay Manik, PE, CDM Smith vice president and client service leader. “We are prepared with a thorough plan, robust technical experience and subcon­trac­tors we’ve had success working with in the past.” 

Construc­tion is set to begin this spring.
