MONTREAL, Nov. 23, 2022 /CNW/ - SNC-Lavalin (TSX: SNC), a fully integrated professional services and project management company with offices around the world, was awarded a US$62 million contract by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) to provide Initial Outfitting & Transition (IO&T) Services for the replacement of the General Leonard Wood Army Community Hospital (GLWACH) in the state of Missouri. The Company will provide full services to transition approximately 1,156 staff located in the legacy facility and outlying medical spaces into the newly constructed state-of-the-art GLWCH facility.
"SNC-Lavalin is a leader in the design, building, operation and maintenance of public health projects, both locally and globally, and has a long history of working on projects that have long-lasting positive impacts on the communities it serves," said Ian L.

"These types of projects showcase the value we bring to our clients, and we are honored to continue to help support the DoD's investment, upgrading and replacing its healthcare facilities."
The GLWACH replacement is the largest project awarded under the IO&T Multiple Award Task Order Contract (MATOC) MATOC III. The project replaces a 40-year-old facility with a new modern medical campus programmed to support 5,700 active-duty military personnel, 20,400 trainees and their families. Work includes full project management services, with medical and non-medical equipment planning, furniture and equipment purchasing, transition planning and relocation, installation, testing, training, warehousing and final turnover and close-out.
"We have established ourselves as a trusted partner for the DoD around the globe, including work in the U.S., Germany and Korea with MATOC I & II," said George Nash, CEO of Atkins North America. "We are proud to be part of this critical mission to ensure that healthcare is available to our military, naval and air service members and their dependents and survivors."
The new US$302 million GLWACH facility is located at Fort Leonard Wood, MO. The new facility includes a 235,400 square-foot hospital, a 193,300 square foot clinic, central utility plant, emergency back-up generators, five-bay ambulance garage, helipad and support facilities.
The company has provided previous U.S. Military hospital IO&T services expertise at the Weed Army Community Hospital and Mary E. Walker Clinic at Fort Irwin, California, and the Brian D.
