Award: Navy and Marine Corps installations
Value: $249 million
Location: Navy Region Southwest
Client: Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command
NAVFAC selected Jacobs to provide multidisciplinary architect-engineer services for renovation, repair and new construction of numerous Navy and Marine Corps installations in the Southwest, according to the Department of Defense.
The $249 million indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract includes the preparation of full plans and specifications, site surveys and investigations, cost estimations and post-construction award services. IDIQ contracts provide for an indefinite quantity of services during a fixed period of time.
Work will be performed in California, Arizona, Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico and Utah. The Navy expects project completion by March 2031, according to the release. The Dallas-based construction services firm competitively procured the contract via the sam.gov website, beating out seven other offers, according to the DOD.
Bob Pragada, the newly appointed Jacobs CEO, identified advanced facilities and national security projects as key growth sectors for the company earlier this year. Those growth sectors continue to receive a boost from government stimulus, such as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, Inflation Reduction Act, CHIPS Act and supply chain technology investments, said Pragada.
Jacobs’ backlog increased about 1% to about $28.26 billion, up from $28 billion a year ago, according to its fiscal first quarter report. The company’s profit jumped to $135.6 million, up from $134 million a year ago.
