U.S. Army Environmental Command names ARCADIS preferred provider to achieve environmental cleanup and remediation

ARCADIS (EURONEXT: ARCAD), the world's leading natural and built asset design and consultancy firm, announced today that the U.S. Army Environmental Command (AEC) has named ARCADIS as one of its preferred providers to help it achieve its environmental cleanup vision by way of two large environmental remediation contracts. Each contract is a multiple award pool with one contract of US$250 million totaling ten companies including ARCADIS,  setting ARCADIS' equal share at US$25 million. The other contract is also US$250 million and has nine companies competing for task orders with ARCADIS working in that one in a joint venture with its mentor protégé partner PIKA, putting the equal share for the joint venture at US$28 million. ARCADIS has served the AEC for nearly 15 years, executing more than $250 million in performance-based task orders for remediation services in that timeframe. ARCADIS has helped the AEC save both time and money - the AEC realized a 30% cost savings for remediation and reduced environmental project completion schedules by an average of 15 years on past projects with ARCADIS. "ARCADIS holds a strong position in the environmental market which is bolstered by the Army's confidence in our team to help strike a balance between defense needs and the quality of life for military personnel and their families," said Gary Coates, CEO for ARCADIS U.S. "We are better able to serve the Department of Defense with our multiple office locations and staff mobility, and are proud to serve the DOD in support of its environmental mission."
