The value of the deal will depend on how much work Woolpert is selected to complete. The company was one of three firms chosen for the contract, officials said.

Among other locations around the world, work was expected at Hurlburt Field, Fla.; Cannon Air Force Base, N.M.; and installations in England and Japan, he said.
