January 3, 2012
Technologists, Inc. (Ti), an international engineering, construction, and management company that works primarily in challenging and remote environments, has been awarded a $30.6 million contract by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Kansas City District to construct a new headquarters complex for the Ministry of Interior in Kabul Province, Afghanistan.
The facility, which will be constructed adjacent to Kabul International Airport, will include the Ministry's main headquarters building plus a communications building, power plant, water-supply system, fuel storage, utility distribution, and other supporting infrastructure.
“We are honored and gratified that the U.S. Army Corps has again selected Ti for a project of such major significance,” said Sayed "Aziz" Azimi, president and CEO of Technologists, Inc. “This facility will be a focal point of the Ministry’s efforts to strengthen the rule of law in Afghanistan.”
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.
