Parsons Wins Contract to Support NAVFAC SW Rebuilding Efforts; Chris Alexander Quoted

Parsons Corporation has been awarded a four-year, $37 million contract by Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southwest (NAVFAC SW) to support rebuilding efforts at Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake, the company reported on Thursday.

"Parsons has a long and successful history of partnering with the Department of Defense on large, complex programs," said Chris Alexander, Parsons' executive vice president, and engineered systems market leader. "We look forward to providing NAVFAC with the full range of professional services oversight necessary to rebuild China Lake."

Under the contract, Parsons will provide programmatic, technical, risk and build management services to support ongoing earthquake recovery efforts, which are part of the NAVFAC's $2.5 billion earthquake recovery program at China Lake, following the  7.1 magnitude earthquake in July 2019. 

The earthquake caused operations to be sustained at a reduced capacity until earthquake recovery efforts such as construction and repairs are completed.
