AECOM announced June 19 that it has been awarded a $91 million contract by Miami-Dade County commissioners in Florida to oversee $1.6 billion in federally mandated repairs to the county’s sewer system.
AECOM will provide program and construction management services for upgrades to the existing wastewater treatment plants and the collection and transmission system pipes and pump stations — including overseeing and supporting the early planning, design and construction phases of the capital program. AECOM will also oversee the implementation of numerous capacity, management, operations and maintenance programs required by a federal consent decree.
“We are pleased to be selected for this important project, which will benefit the residents and visitors of Miami-Dade County through major improvements to the county’s wastewater system and facilities,” said AECOM president and CEO Michael S. Burke. “This is a great opportunity to again demonstrate AECOM’s expertise in delivering complex and crucial projects, which includes numerous large water and wastewater projects throughout the world.”
AECOM was awarded a five-year contract, with two five-year extension options.
