PROJECT DESCRIPTION

This was a turn-key EPC (Design/Build) contract, including land acquisition, for the US Embassy, Maputo’s new integrated logistics, storage and maintenance warehouse. MDCC undertook the design/build under the OBO’s building specifications adjusting with their approval for the building environment in Mozambique. The warehouse size is 1650m2 and special considerations were taken into account at the design stage for process flow of the warehouse operations. MDCC also supported through acquisition assistance fitting out the warehouse with industrial racking and shelving as part of the contract.

MDCC ensured local Mozambique companies and individuals participation as part of the “In-Country Value” goals they set for the project. Additionally MDCC was the liaison that coordinated the efforts between the U.S.D.S and Mozambique Government Depts.

There were additional expansions to the project that were sole-sourced and executed by MDCC as well.
