An engineering and architectural firm has started to work on 21st Century Education project for the Defense Department since 2004. Woolpert, the firm will re-sign the contract on an annual basis with the option to continue it through 2018.
The agreement, worth about $10 million to Woolpert, will deal out an additional $50 million to other construction contractors around the world.
The engineering firm based in Dayton, OH, has signed a new agreement with the United States Department of Defense to design and manage construction of 180 schools the department functions around the world.
On the Defense Department's list of schools to modernize — some more than 50 years old — are 60 in the United States, 71 in Europe and 49 in Asia.
The redesigned school buildings will feature open, flexible spaces that can house multiple learning and teaching styles. An example is the Barkley Elementary School at Fort Campbell, KY, which has won a number of plan and sustainability awards.
