UK firm wins work for US Army in Middle East
Building News report that Atkins, who are working with Innovative Technical Solutions, are one of the 14 teams who will have to compete for the work for the Middle East District of the US Army Corps of Engineers.
The US military have several bases across the Middle East, with bases in 20 countries. They want to spend $4 billion on infrastructure over the next five years and have handpicked Atkins, as well as a number of other firms, to carry out the work.
Under the MATOC (Multiple Award Task Order Contract), for any contracts won by Innovative Technical Solutions, Atkins will provide construction and architecture advice and support.
Atkins have previously worked with the US Air Force around the world, and helped provide architecture and engineering services.
This latest news shows that UK firms are having a bigger influence abroad and are starting to win more construction projects overseas.
