Two Virginia federal contracting companies were part of a group of companies that won a maximum $950 million construction contract from Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command (NAVFAC) Mid-Atlantic, Norfolk. Along with six other contractors, they can compete for task orders under the terms of the contract, the Department of Defense announced Friday.
Virginia Beach-based S.B. Ballard Construction Co. and Newport News-based general construction company W.M. Jordan Co. are the Virginia competitors, along with the Quantico office of Massachusetts-based renewable energy company Ameresco Inc.
S.B. Ballard Construction Co. won the initial $51.6 million task order for the corrosion control and paint facility at Naval Station Norfolk. All work will be performed in Hampton Roads and is expected to be completed March 2024.
The indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity multiple award design-build/design bid build construction contract is for large general projects, like new construction, demolition, repair, renovation and systems, in the NAVFAC Mid-Atlantic area of operations. The contract has four option years in addition to the base period and will last a maximum of 60 months. Expected completion is August 2026.
The seven minimum guarantee task order awards have $35,000 obligated in U.S. Navy fiscal year 2021 funds.
