Arlington, Va.

 

Technologists, Inc. (Ti), an international engineering, construction, and management company that works primarily in challenging and remote environments, has been awarded a nearly $5.4 million contract by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Middle East District to construct a new wastewater treatment plant at Forward Operating Base Shank in Afghanistan.

 

The new plant, which will treat almost 2 million liters of wastewater per day, consists of an aerated lagoon treatment system plus a control building, pumping stations, sanitary sewer, electrical power supply, communications upgrades, security fencing, drainage culverts, and other site improvements.

 

“Ti is pleased to add this treatment plant to the long list of projects we have completed or ongoing for the U.S. Army Corps in Afghanistan,” said Sayed Aziz Azimi, president and CEO of Ti.

 

Since entering Afghanistan in 2004 Ti has completed more than 50 projects for USACE, ranging from single buildings and roads to complex facilities with multiple buildings plus all associated infrastructure—water and wastewater systems, heating, electrical power generation and distribution, communications and Internet systems, trash collection, roads and parking areas, and interior and perimeter security systems.

 

Ti has an additional 11 USACE projects underway, including Phase 2 of the Afghan National Police National Training Center in Wardak Province. When completed in February 2012, the National Training Center will be the largest USACE project ever built in Afghanistan, with a contract value of more than $98 million.

 

With more than 1,000 employees—the vast majority of them Afghan professionals—Ti is Afghanistan’s largest engineering services company, dedicated to both the building of projects and the sustained growth of its engineering and construction community.
