Black & Veatch designed and constructed a new emergency operation building with administrative offices for the Cameroon Ministry of Health. We executed this large-scale CBEP effort that included engineering design, renovation/construction, CBEP and operations and maintenance (O&M) training, equipping, commissioning, third party validation, international certification, and sustainment support and transition at 15 14 laboratory facilities (14 13 BSL-2 and 1 BSL-3 CRL), an additional 18 BS&S site upgrades, an extensive program of collaborative biological research, and support to achieve initial operational capability/full operational capability. It included all Scope of Work (SOW) elements of TO RFP 0022 but on a national Threat Agent Detection and Response system scale across Ukraine.
"Black & Veatch utilized local subcontractors to help design and construct the first BSL-3 laboratory in the region and provided enhanced equipment and training to effectively, safely and securely identify especially dangerous pathogens."
"Black & Veatch provided recipient laboratory staff all requisite training, and ensured the B&V constructed facilities met biological safety, security and sustainability requirements."
