Woolpert will continue its design and professional services for the Department of Defense Education Activity program under a new $10 million contract to support the 21st Century Education Initiative.

The company said Thursday it will help the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers – Norfolk District and DoDEA Design Center renovate the primary and secondary schools for children of U.S. military families based worldwide.

“Congress has made it a national priority to replace obsolete school facilities serving military families, ” said David Ziegman, military practice leader and vice president at Woolpert.

The initiative seeks to replace or modernize 180 aging school buildings around the world with a sustainable and flexible design to foster 21st century learning, the company said.

Woolpert will perform work at design centers in Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia, Ohio and Illinois.

This new indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract extends the company’s 10-year support for DoDEA through Dec. 22, 2018, DoD said.
