US company awarded contract to rebuild Bosnian infrastructure
Parsons Corp. has been awarded a $54 million contract to rebuild water systems and other infrastructure around the war-ravaged district of Brcko.
The corporation, offering technical and management services in infrastructure, transportation and energy, amongst others, from Pasadena, California, was awarded the four-year contract by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), primarily for building new water systems in the Balkan state.
The project, the Community Reintegration and Stabilization Program, is scheduled to begin in the next 30 days in cooperation with other international donors and will rehabilitate water systems and other infrastructure destroyed during the war within and around Brcko.
Parsons has worked with USAID for the past five years redeveloping countries damaged through internal conflict. Most recently Parsons teamed with the organisation in the restoration of medical, educational, and infrastructure facilities in Kosovo.
“We are pleased to have still another opportunity to work with USAID to help improve the quality of life for people suffering around the world,” said Frank DeMartino, president of Parsons’ Infrastructure & Technology Group Inc.
