PEARL HARBOR (NNS) -- Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Hawaii awarded its first Small Business Multiple Award Construction Contract (MACC) to six firms July 17.
"The intent of this new Small Business MACC is to provide small companies the opportunity to bid on construction projects that may require design and construction services ranging from $3 million to $30 million," said NAVFAC Hawaii Executive Officer Capt. George Suther. "The maximum capacity of this MACC is $240 million. The areas of consideration will include, but are not limited to, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force and miscellaneous Federal and other facilities in Hawaii."
The six contractors are Insight Pacific, LLC (small business), Anaheim, Calif. 92806; Bethel-Webcor JV-1 (small business), Anchorage, Alaska; Dawson-Hawaiian Builders I (small business), Honolulu, Hawaii; JSR-ECC, LLC (small business), Schertz, Texas; CT JV (small business), Bargerville, Ind.; and Environet, Inc.

They each were awarded an indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity multiple award design-build /design-bid-build construction contract for construction projects located primarily within the NAVFAC Hawaii area of responsibility.
The term of the contract is not to exceed 60 months, with expected completion date of July 2015 (base period). The maximum dollar value including the base period and four option years for all six contracts combined is $240 million. Contract funds in the amount of $60,000 are obligated on this award and will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year.
