HIGHLANDS RANCH, Colo. -- September 26, 2013

ARCADIS (EURONEXT: ARCAD), the leading pure play global engineering and
consultancy firm, announced today it received the 2013 Indiana Associated
Builders and Contractors, Inc. (ABC) Award of Excellence in Merit Shop
Construction for two recent design projects: the Trident Refit Facility Dry
Dock Rehabilitation project at Naval Submarine Base, Kings Bay, Ga, and for
the Port Operations Waterfront Facility project at Marine Corps Support
Facility, Blount Island, Jacksonville, Fla. The awards were presented last
night at the 2013 ABC Annual Awards Gala at the Indiana Roof Ballroom in

The $7.2M rehabilitation of the Trident Refit Facility involved the
replacement, rehabilitation, and repair of various architectural, structural,
mechanical, and electrical aspects of the 220,000-square-foot facility.
Additional environmental components included sampling and testing of the
potentially hazardous waste and sludge within the wet walls and conduits of
the dry dock. Due to inherent scheduling challenges of an active military
installation, the project couldn’t follow a typical design-build procedure,
however all design needs were successfully met and no design cost increases
were incurred.

The Port Operations Waterfront Facility project at Blount Island involved the
construction of a 12,000-square-foot two-story building, parking area and
support facilities. The ARCADIS design team worked closely with the
construction team and Naval Facilities Engineering Command to design a fully
enclosed, multifunctional facility with offices for administration, IT and
security. The collaborative approach between the design team, contractors and
client resulted in a substantially shortened design time-frame. A 60 percent
submittal stage was attained within 45 days of Concept Design review, and the
$3.3M project was finished ahead of schedule.

“Receiving an award such as the Award of Excellence from ABC is a great
honor,” said Heather Polinsky, director at ARCADIS U.S. “I am very proud of
the work ARCADIS has accomplished by applying innovative solutions to complex

The Port Operations Waterfront Facility is pending a LEED-NC Silver rating
from the U.S. Green Building Council.
