AIKEN - A team led by an Ohio construction firm has been given a $91.5 million contract for construction of the National Nuclear Security Administration’s Waste Solidification Building at Savannah River Site, the agency announced today.

The building’s operation will involve processing waste streams from plutonium disposition at SRS, changing it to a cement material to be disposed of, according to a release. The wastes will mostly come from the Mixed Oxide Fuel Fabrication Facility and weapons pit disassembly operations.

The team that won the contract is led by Baker Concrete Construction Inc., of Monroe, Ohio, and includes Intermech, of Winston-Salem, N.C., and Besco, of Knoxville, Tenn.

The contract is for a second phase of work, to include the construction of the facility’s structure and installation of its process systems, the release says. The work should provide about 120 jobs.
