Shaw Embarks On Omaha Munitions Clean-Up Project


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Shaw Group
: 02 August, 2010  (Application Story)
US Army Engineers have contracted the Shaw Group to evaluate and restore former defence sites in Omaha that have been contaminated through munitions use
In helping the district with its objective to restore the environment, Shaw will inspect, evaluate and remediate sites that are contaminated with munitions and explosives of concern. The scope of work under Shaw’s indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract includes investigations, munitions removal, explosives and debris handling management on sites contaminated with munitions. This work may be performed at formerly used defence sites, base realignment and closure sites, and active installations.

With a 20-year legacy of environmental services to the Omaha District, Shaw successfully has performed extensive investigation and remediation projects and is readily equipped to handle its growing emphasis on munitions response. Having more than 200 unexploded ordnance technicians who are supported by in-house technical and safety experts, Shaw’s self-performance provides available personnel and project control.

“Shaw’s history of managing hundreds of munitions projects for the Omaha District gives us a unique understanding of our client’s needs and procedures,” said George Bevan, president of Shaw's Environmental & Infrastructure Group. “By utilizing key personnel with experience on similar projects for the district, Shaw brings enhanced communications, minimal need for oversight and maximum performance to help fulfil our client’s comprehensive objectives at multiple sites.”

Shaw is one of five firms selected to compete on task orders with a maximum contract value of $124 million. Approximately $18 million was included in Shaw's Environmental & Infrastructure segment's backlog of unfilled orders in the third quarter of fiscal year 2010.
