LOS ANGELES (March 19, 2021) — AECOM (NYSE: ACM), the world’s premier infrastructure consulting firm, today announced that it has been selected by the U.S. Air Force Civil Engineer Center (AFCEC) to provide planning, design and construction management services through the Architect-Engineer NEXT 2021 contract for infrastructure and facilities globally. The multiple-award contract, with a combined $2 billion program ceiling, includes a five year base period and one five year option.

“AECOM’s track record of technical excellence positioned us as a trusted partner to continue our 65-year history collaborating with the U.S. Air Force to deliver innovative solutions for their dynamic missions across the globe,” said Lara Poloni, AECOM’s president. “We are proud to support the U.S. Air and Space Forces’ dominance in the skies and space for generations to come by delivering strong infrastructure built on the ground.”

AECOM has held AFCEC’s predecessor architect-engineer contract for the last five years and was the number one service provider — spanning dozens of projects around the world, including the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado. AECOM will continue to leverage its technical expertise on large-scale projects that involve the restoration, sustainment, and modernization of resilient U.S. Department of Defense facilities, including military construction programs and Foreign Military Sales.
