Montreal – Montreal-based SNC-Lavalin recently announced it has been awarded a contract as part of joint venture partnership to undertake outfitting and transition services for the relocation of the Brian Allgood Army Community Hospital and associated buildings in Yongsan/Seoul, South Korea to a new hospital under construction at Camp Humphreys in South Korea.
A media statement said SNC-Lavalin was working as part of BTF Solutions, a joint venture with Covalus LLC, and the 30-month, $42-million contract with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Engineering and Support Center was signed under SNC-Lavalin’s Faithful+Gould business.
SNC-Lavalin acquired Faithful+Gould, part of WS Atkins PLC, on July 3, 2017.
The new hospital facility consists of a single multi-storey building housing an Ambulatory Care Clinic and a 68-bed hospital, totalling 418,572 square feet with an adjacent parking structure and central utility plant. The hospital will serve approximately 65,000 patients.
The contract will also include equipment and move planning as well as the purchase of medical equipment.
“Winning this award is a reflection of our team’s recent successful performance on the Korean peninsula with a similar project that was completed in September 2017,” said Nick Roberts, president, Atkins, Engineering, Design and Project Management, SNC-Lavalin, in the statement.
“We are happy to have been brought back for this larger hospital project.”
