infrastructureA joint venture of AECOM (NYSE: ACM) and CH2M Hill will continue its cleanup work at the Oak Ridge Reservation in Tennessee after the Energy Department exercised $104 million in contract options.

“We will continue our momentum in completing cleanup of the East Tennessee Technology Park and move forward with other critical initiatives designed to support cleanup and preserve the history of this site, ” James Taylor, executive vice president and general manager of AECOM’s nuclear and environment business.

UCOR will also perform surveillance, maintenance and waste management at the Y-12 Nuclear Security Complex and Oak Ridge National Laboratory and provide construction support under the National Historic Preservation Project, AECOM said.

The contract covers the removal of environmental hazards, demolition of legacy facilities and repurposing of land and buildings at the East Tennessee Technology Park and other DOE Oak Ridge Reservation sites.
