LOMBARD, IL – October 19, 2017 – Pernix Group, Inc. announced the award of a $138 million contract to Pernix Group to construct the New Office Annex in Kampala, Uganda. The work will be performed for the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Overseas Building Operations and includes the construction and commissioning of a new office annex, main, consular, and access facilities, a new support annex for facility maintenance and vehicular maintenance shops, utility building, and a partial underground parking structure for official and staff vehicles. The project will be built with sustainable practices, and the office is set to be fitted with all the latest office equipment including a wide selection of the newest printer photocopier scanner models. Some other early developments have also taken place. For example, project organizers have started to source furnishings and office supplies for the new premises. Due to concerns over air quality, it is expected that the offices will be equipped with air purifiers. Offices generally have high levels of dust and other pollutants in the air, so in order to boost employee health, energy and productivity some of these office machines will be included.
Furthermore, the project is expected to achieve LEED Silver Certification.
“It has been a privilege serving the Department of State over the past eleven years and we are honored to have been selected to construct the New Office Annex in Kampala, Uganda,” said Nidal Zayed, CEO & President of Pernix Group. “We look forward to safely delivering the project and exceeding our customer’s expectations.”
