Shaw Awarded Environmental Management Contract to Support U.S. Navy Public Works Center San Diego, California

BATON ROUGE, La.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–March 29, 2005–The Shaw Group Inc. (NYSE: SGR) today announced that its subsidiary, Shaw Infrastructure, Inc., was selected by the Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Southwest Division, to provide comprehensive environmental management services at various U.S. Navy and Marine Corps installations within the Navy Public Works Center area of responsibility. The $8 million fixed-price, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract has a base contract period of six months, with four optional one-year extensions and one optional three-month extension. If exercised, the extensions would bring the maximum contract value to $67 million. Shaw will commence work on the project April 1, 2005.

The work to be performed includes a comprehensive range of environmental services, including hazardous waste management; oily and industrial waste treatment; laboratory services; assessment and cleanup of contaminated sites; and specialized projects in support of San Diego area Navy and Marine Corps installations, as well as Navy ships. Specialized projects may include investigation, remedial design, remedial construction, and other professional environmental services.

The work will be performed at various locations within and around the San Diego, California area, including the Naval Bases in San Diego, Coronado, and Point Loma. The contract also includes services to the Naval Medical Center in San Diego, Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, and the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar. The Navy Public Works Center in San Diego was commissioned in 1963 to consolidate the management of public works services and products to the military community and provide public works services that contribute to the readiness of our military personnel and to the quality of life ashore.

J.M. Bernhard, Jr., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Shaw, said, “We are pleased to receive this environmental management award from the Naval Facilities Engineering Command. Shaw is already providing environmental remedial construction expertise to the Navy and this project will diversify our portfolio of services to this valued client. We look forward to supporting military installations throughout the San Diego area.”
