KBR (NYSE: KBR), a global engineering, construction and services company,
announced today that KBR Building Group has been awarded a contract by
Ferguson Enterprises to construct a 400,000-square-foot distribution center in
Celina, Ohio. The undisclosed contract value will be booked into backlog in
KBR’s third quarter of 2013.

Known for its outstanding safety record, KBR Building Group serves advanced
manufacturing, commercial/mixed-use, healthcare and institutional clients. It
has extensive experience in building manufacturing and distribution
facilities.

Construction of the new distribution center will allow Ferguson, the nation’s
largest wholesale distributor of plumbing supplies and pipe, valves and
fittings, to better serve its customers. The new facility will operate with a
paperless inventory system, replenishing inventory to the company’s branch
warehouses. In addition to servicing these wholesale purchase points for
contractors, the Ohio location will support the company’s 10 other regional
distribution centers in the United States.

“KBR is excited to showcase our construction and design-assist capabilities
for this new distribution center that allows Ferguson to improve efficiency
and deliver inventory to its customers more quickly,” said Phil Southerland,
President, KBR Building Group. “KBR previously built a regional distribution
center for Ferguson in Waterloo, Iowa, and appreciates the repeat business.”
