Arlington, Va.

 

Technologists, Inc. (Ti), an international engineering, construction, and management company that works primarily in challenging and remote environments, has been awarded two new contracts totaling $27.5 million by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Afghanistan.

 

The first award, valued at $9,979,812, is for the rehabilitation of the National Military Academy of Afghanistan (NMAA) at South Kabul International Airport and its conversion to Pohantoon-e-Haw ai (Aviation University). The scope of work includes upgrading existing buildings, designing and constructing a new motor pool and dining facility, and completing additional site-adapt work.

 

The second award, valued at $17,565,644, is for the design and construction of roads and utilities (Phase I) and for construction of the water distribution system at Forward Operating Base Shank. The 270-day project schedule calls for a quick mobilization and fast-track execution by Ti’s FOB Shank team.

 

“We are grateful that the U.S. Army Corps has renewed its confidence in Ti’s ability to complete critical projects on time and within budget,” 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 15 projects valued at $257.5 million underway in Afghanistan for the USACE and other clients.

 

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.
