The USA’s National Aeronautics & Space Administration (NASA) has selected Figg Bridge Engineers to provide design services for replacement and rehabilitation of bridges at the Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.
The new indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract for NASA begins this week. It will last at least five years, with up to four potential one-year extensions. The maximum potential value of the contract is US$30 million.
Figg Bridge Engineers will conduct a variety of field investigations and surveys, and prepare reports and studies to support the project. The firm will develop complete design packages, detailed cost estimates, environmental permit applications and environmental certificates of compliance. Figg will also provide planning studies, bridge models and renderings, permits and contract documents for construction.
Other professional and incidental services will be carried out, such as project management, construction management and inspection services to support all phases of bridge work from design through construction. The company will provide designs with low environmental impact using sustainable materials.
