Shaw awarded US Navy contract for radiological work

Engineering, procurement and construction group Shaw has been awarded a five-year contract by the US Navy to provide radiological-contaminant remediation services at various locations within the US Naval Facilities Engineering Command’s Southwest and Atlantic areas of responsibility.
