Hollywood, FL (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - NV5 Global, Inc. (Nasdaq: NVEE) (“NV5” or the “Company”), a professional engineering and consulting solutions provider, announced today that it has been awarded a contract amendment with a Southern California utility for $6 million. The new contract brings NV5’s total awarded fire hardening contracts to $28 million over the past two years. The amended contract, which begins immediately and adds to the Company’s ongoing work, addresses risk by modernizing the utility’s electric system infrastructure in fire prone areas.
Investor and municipal-owned utilities have responded to the increasing threat of wildfires in the West by making fire hardening and fire risk mitigation top priorities. NV5 has observed this increased focus firsthand and is well positioned to support mitigation and response activities. In addition to the fire hardening work in Southern California, NV5 recently began working with strategic partners to support utilities impacted by fires in Northern California. NV5 employees have also volunteered with California’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES) and American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) to help communities impacted by the devastating Camp Fire.
