Fluor Corporation was awarded a contract by the Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to provide architectural and engineering services to support disaster-related operations in Texas following the severe thunderstorms, tornadoes and flooding that swept through the state in May.
Fluor’s contract is one of two task order contracts announced by FEMA for disaster response services in Texas. The contract has a six-month base period with an additional six-month option period. The undisclosed contract amount will be booked in the third quarter.
Fluor will support FEMA in the restoration of vital infrastructure, public facilities and services, rehabilitation and reconstruction of private and commercial properties, restoration of the economic base and coordination with voluntary agencies and administration of assistance to households and individuals.
“We are proud to be part of this important humanitarian effort,” Bruce Stanski, president of Fluor’s Government Group, said in a release. “For almost two decades Fluor has consistently and successfully provided technical support services to the FEMA Public Assistance Program. Regionally, we have supported relief efforts for Hurricanes Gustav, Ike, Katrina and Rita. Nationwide, we have assisted individuals and communities to recover from the devastation of floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes and other natural disasters.”
