Burns & McDonnell Awarded Commissioning Services Contract for New National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency Campus in St. Louis

ST. LOUIS, Oct. 17, 2016 — (PRNewswire) — Burns & McDonnell has been awarded a $9.5 million indefinite delivery indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract from the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) for commissioning services to be provided during the programming, design and construction of a new NGA replacement campus in North St. Louis. The contract covers all of the project through design, construction and transition phases of the Next NGA West (N2W) campus.

The commissioning program is already underway in support of preliminary engineering design of facilities on the new 99-acre campus. Commissioning activities over the duration of the contract will support programming, planning, design, construction and operation of N2W facilities.

Commissioning is increasingly recognized as a critical step in the programming, design and construction of highly complex facilities because of the potential of reducing maintenance and operating costs, extending lifetimes of systems and equipment and ensuring comfortable and productive environments for building occupants. Commissioning professionals are now commonly engaged during early-phase project design as a strategy to better manage project budgets and reduce project risk.

"We are honored to be a part of a project that is so important to the city of St. Louis and to our national security," says David Meyers, Manager of Commissioning for Burns & McDonnell. "These facilities will have some of the most complex systems ever constructed so commissioning will play a key role in getting this unprecedented program turned over to the NGA."

The North St. Louis site was selected in early 2016. The NGA has been located in St. Louis since 1942. But the current campus could no longer support the NGA's rapidly evolving mission as both an intelligence and combat support agency. The NGA fulfills many national security priorities in partnership with the intelligence community and Department of Defense.
