Award: Reconstruction support
Clients: Ukraine Ministry for Communities, Territories and Infrastructure Development and State Agency for Restoration and Development of Infrastructure
AECOM will provide program management advisory and technical advisory support to help Ukraine rebuild its infrastructure, the company announced last month. The Dallas-based firm signed a memorandum of understanding with Ukraine’s Ministry for Communities, Territories and Infrastructure Development to serve as its reconstruction delivery partner.
A Kyiv School of Economics report released in March said the damage Russia has caused to Ukraine’s infrastructure after a year of war has reached $36.2 billion in replacement costs. That number rises to $143.8 billion when including housing, healthcare, energy and other types of facilities.
“The reconstruction of Ukraine is one of the world’s greatest humanitarian and infrastructure priorities, and we are honored to partner with Deputy Prime Minister Kubrakov and the Ukrainian government to help position this effort to successfully deliver on their long-term recovery ambitions,” AECOM CEO Troy Rudd said in the release.
In the role, AECOM will help design and establish an overall program management approach to aid in the efficient delivery of a range of reconstruction projects. Additionally, the firm announced it will work with Ukraine’s State Agency for Restoration and Development of Infrastructure to advance cost estimating and engineering support for complex and critical infrastructure projects.
The company did not disclose the value of the contracts.
AECOM has delivered major reconstruction work around the world in Iraq, Afghanistan and Bosnia, according to the release, as well as post-natural disaster reconstruction in Nepal, Haiti, Japan, Indonesia and the Caribbean.
