The U.S. Navy's Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Southeast awarded a $240-million indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity design-build multiple award construction contract (IDIQ-MACC) to five large businesses in February for construction projects located at Naval Station (NS) Mayport and the NAVAC Southeast area of responsibility (AOR).

Archer Western Federal JV is being awarded the initial taskorder at $24.7 million for the P427 Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) OperationalTrainer Facility (LTF) located at NS Mayport, Florida. Work for this task orderis expected to be completed by January 2021. The remaining four contractors willbe awarded $1,000 each to satisfy the guaranteed minimum.

"The LTF provides innovative, immersive, virtualreality training for LCS crews which allow them to be better prepared for theoperational scenarios they will encounter at sea," said Commander LittoralCombat Ship Squadron Two Capt. Shawn Johnston. "It is not surprising thatmany other ship classes will begin to utilize similar high-fidelity simulators.This increased LCS training capacity will allow the 14 LCS expected to callMayport home."

LCS crew training is based on a virtual ship-centricconcept, accomplished through a combination of classroom instruction, vendortraining, shore-based trainers and sophisticated virtual reality trainingsystems. The LTF will provide LCS crews with the necessary training andcertifications they require prior to deployment.

The work to be performed provides for, but is not limitedto, general building type projects (new construction, renovation, alteration,demolition and repair work) including industrial, airfield, aircraft hangar,aircraft traffic control, infrastructure, administrative, training, dormitoryand community support facilities.

MACC contracts are used to pre-qualify a group ofcontractors (usually four to seven) with respect to performance, experience,capability and safety and then issue task orders to them for projects that meetthe parameters of the MACC. MACCs save the command and the government time andresources.

The five large businesses awarded under this contractinclude: Archer Western Federal JV, Chicago, Illinois; B.L. HarbertInternational, Birmingham, Alabama; The Haskell Company, Jacksonville, Florida;The Korte Company, St. Louis, Missouri; and Mortenson Construction,Minneapolis, Minnesota. These five contractors may compete for task ordersunder the terms and conditions of the awarded contract.

All work on this contract will be within the NAVFACSoutheast AOR which includes Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, SouthCarolina, Tennessee and Texas.

The term of the contract is not to exceed 60 months, with anexpected completion date of February 2024.
