ACS wins new hospital and climate resilience contracts in the United States for 830 million euros

MADRID, 2 Feb. (EUROPA PRESS) -

ACS, through its US subsidiaries Turner and Flatiron, has been awarded three new contracts for hospital infrastructure and climate resilience in the United States for a combined total amount of 900 million dollars (830 million euros).

Firstly, a 'joint venture' in which it participates will build the Palo Alto University Hospital, in San Antonio (Texas), for 550 million dollars (505 million euros), as reported by Hochtief, the German subsidiary that owns Turner.

This hospital infrastructure, scheduled to open in 2027, will be a five-story complex that will include an emergency room, delivery rooms and a neonatal intensive care unit, among other amenities.

On the other hand, Flatiron has won a contract in Virginia Beach (Virginia) valued at 275 million dollars (253 million euros) to implement anti-flood protection, which also includes the supply of drinking water.

Flatiron has also recently been awarded another $100 million (€92 million) contract from the US Army Corps of Engineers to improve storm protection at several pumping stations in Port Arthur, Texas.

The goal of the project is to better protect the power-generating region from the effects of storm surge and sea level rise, which will require, among other things, new concrete gates and levee armoring.
