The US Navy's Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Mid-Atlantic has chosen Stantec as the principal design firm for a massive waterfront project. As part of a five-year, USD 60 million indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract, the project includes multidisciplinary architect/engineer services. Stantec will support the planning, design, construction, and renovation of large waterfront projects within NAVFAC Mid-North Atlantic's area of responsibility as part of an IDIQ contract (AOR).
Work at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard (PNSY) in Kittery, Maine, is part of this. Stantec's more than 60-year history of supporting NAVFAC and Department of Defense (DoD) projects continues with this IDIQ contract, which is the firm's fourth consecutive Waterfront IDIQ with NAVFAC Mid-Atlantic. Stantec is currently delivering on its prior IDIQ contract with NAVFAC Mid-Atlantic, which just received a $30 million increase in contracting capacity. This has resulted in a $90 million contracting capacity.
Kittery, Maine, Norfolk, Virginia, Puget Sound, Washington, and Pearl Harbor, Hawaii are all part of the $20 billion effort to restore and modernize shipyards. Structural, civil, architectural, electrical, mechanical, planning, environmental, cost estimates, and geotechnical services are all included in Stantec's IDIQ contract. Projects under this IDIQ qualify as important, mission-critical activity and hence have not paused, even during the Covid-19 outbreak, in accordance with DoD's mandate.
The primary focus of the work will be on naval facilities in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Delaware, with the ability to extend to NAVFAC Mid-other Atlantic's AORs as needed. Wharves, piers, dry docks, dredging, berthing and mooring, coastal and shoreline protection, and waterfront-related utilities are all examples of waterfront project categories.
