The Army awarded a $5 million contract to General Dynamics Corp. yesterday to build an information technology infrastructure in some areas of the Pentagon as part of the building's multiyear renovation program.
Officials in General Dynamics' unit in Needham, Mass., will survey, plan, design and install an IT systems and infrastructure for tenants in wedges 2 to 5 in the Pentagon. They will complete the work by 2010, according to an Aug. 12 Defense Department contracts statement.
The Pentagon building consists of five sides called wedges. The Pentagon Renovation Program involves 4 million square feet of space to bring the building into compliance with construction, disability and fire codes.
The project started in 2001 and will finish in 2010. The Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack on the building led program manager to reassess and upgrade project design criteria in many areas, according to the Pentagon Renovation and Construction program's Web site.
