ARCADIS, the leading pure play global engineering and consultancy firm, today announced it has been selected by the Air Force Center for Civil Engineering Center (AFCEC) to provide restoration services at Tyndall Air Force Base. The Tyndall AFB Performance Based Remediation task order extends through September 2020 with a total price of approximately $32 million.
The task order is performed under the $3B AFCEC Worldwide Environmental Remediation Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) Contract to which ARCADIS is a party. ARCADIS will deliver fixed price remedies and strategies for the restoration of more than 29,000 acres on a narrow 18 mile long peninsula in the Florida Panhandle. Activated in 1941, Tyndall AFB is currently part of the Air Combat Command and is used for training air defense crews providing combat power for Air Force missions.
The project will include environmental restoration of 20 sites over seven years including 11 Installation Restoration sites, nine military munitions response and small arms range sites, two landfills, petroleum/oil/lubricant sites, a wastewater treatment plant effluent spray field site, and former storage tank sites and the associated soils, groundwater plumes, and drainage areas.
“ARCADIS will use innovative techniques to restore this prime ecological corridor to unrestricted use for the Air Force,” said Mark Fenner, director for ARCADIS’ global environment business line. “Returning these sites to beneficial use in a timely manner, helps the nearly 3,000 residents at Tyndall enjoy a better quality of life while focusing on fulfilling their mission of training air defense crews.”
