Sandia National Laboratories has selected 10 New Mexico companies to provide an estimated $156 million in general construction, mechanical and electrical work at the federal laboratory for up to six years. Eight of the companies chosen are small businesses.

The companies will be prime contractors for the labs, and will compete for individual construction projects as they occur, says Camille Gibson, manager of Sandia�s Infrastructure Operations Procurement Department.

The prime contractors selected for general construction projects are B&D Industries Inc., Engineering Constructors Inc., Summit Construction Inc. and T.E.F. Construction Inc. The mechanical contractors are BRYCON Construction, Cross Connection Inc. and JB Henderson Construction. The electrical contractors are Del Rio Enterprises Inc., Enterprise Electrical Services Inc. and U S Electrical Corp. All the companies are based in Albuquerque, except BRYCON, which has headquarters in Rio Rancho.

While the vast majority of construction at Sandia labs will be covered by these partnership agreements, there are opportunities for other companies to obtain work from Sandia. These projects include maintenance, demolition, subcontracting with the prime contractors and other work. Companies interested in working at Sandia can find out more at
