The United States Army Corps of Engineers’ New England District has awarded a contract for slightly more than $2 million to Waterwark Environmental Inc., Lowell, Mass., to perform deconstruction and restoration services at the Ipswich antenna testing facility in Ipswich, Mass.

As part of the contract, Watermark is required to complete pre-work planning for various phases of the project prior to starting demolition on the property. Physical work at the site could start as early as this November; however, the contractor may elect to begin work next spring. The contract period is 13 months, which starts when the government issues the contractor a Notice-to-Proceed.

Work includes the complete deconstruction and restoration of an existing antenna testing facility. All on-site buildings, structures, site pavements and utilities will be removed and the site returned to a vegetated state.

The site has been leased by the U.S. Air Force since the end of World War II and has served as an antenna test facility since that time.

The project will be managed by the Corps of Engineers and all work will be accomplished under the supervision of a Corps of Engineers Quality Assurance Representative to assure compliance with contract requirements.
