ARCADIS (EURONEXT: ARCAD), the international consultancy, design, engineering and management services company, announced today it has opened an office in Tamuning, Guam on Marine Corps Drive.
The office is currently providing infrastructure design-build and munitions remediation services under two multiple award contracts, with a total construction value of $550M. ARCADIS U.S. performs services under subconsultant agreements for Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Marianas, Guam.
'We coordinate with multiple partners here on a daily basis to support several military contracts including those from NAVFAC,' said Harry Kleiser, Federal Client Development Director for ARCADIS/Pirnie. 'Our work is setting the stage for growth on the island, including improvements for water management, energy supply, roads and housing. Having a local office allows us to be true partners and respond to our client's needs in real-time. In addition to our current projects, we plan to expand this office to offer our full line of services to other clients.'
The island of Guam has a population of 171,000, and is home to approximately 14,000 U.S. military personnel and dependants. With the pending transfer of Marines from Okinawa, it is estimated that an additional 26,000 military personnel and their dependents will be relocated to Guam before 2014. This significant growth will result in billions of dollars dedicated to infrastructure on the military bases, and infrastructure and socio-economic improvements off base to support the population.
ARCADIS/Pirnie's Guam office is located at 888 N. Marine Corps Drive, Suite 214, Tamuning, Guam, 96913. The phone number is 617 646 3775.
