LOS ANGELES — AECOM Technology Corporation announced that a joint venture in which it participates has been awarded a $62.3 million design-build contract for Rhode Island’s Lawton Valley Water Treatment Plant and upgrade of the state’s Station No. 1 plant in Newport. Under the contract, the AECOM joint venture team will deliver comprehensive design-build services for the two water treatment plants, including permitting, design, construction, start-up, and commissioning.

For Station No. 1, the team will upgrade the existing 9 million-gallons-per-day plant. The 7 million-gallons-per-day Lawton Valley plant will be demolished and replaced with a new, compact building.

“AECOM is excited to partner with the city of Newport to provide innovative solutions for its long-range water quality goals,” said AECOM Chairman and Chief Executive Officer John M. Dionisio. “This is another example of AECOM’s successful commitment to the highest standards for client service and solutions.”
