The U.S. Navy recently selected eight contractors to compete for up to $3 billion in task orders for various construction, repair and renovation projects, mostly in California.

San Diego-based Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command (NAVFAC) Southwest awarded the indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity multiple award contracts to Clark Construction Group – California LP, Gilbane Federal, Harper Construction Co Inc., Hensel Phelps Construction Co., R.A. Burch Construction Co. Inc., RQ Construction LLC, Tutor Perini Corp. and Walsh Federal LLC.

NAVFAC Southwest received 16 offers for the work, according to a Dept. of Defense contract award notice. Renae Kvendru, NAVFAC Southwest chief of contracting, called the contract award “critical” in a statement and said her team completed the procurement a month early.

The work is expected to be completed by June 2029. The contracts cover an initial two-year base period with an option to extend another three years. 

Most of the firm fixed-price task orders are expected to range between $15 million and $300 million, according to NAVFAC’s solicitation. They will cover design-build and design-bid-build projects at various facilities. Officials expect about 90% of the work to be done in California, plus smaller amounts in Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Colorado and New Mexico. 

NAVFAC Southwest lists projects online it expects to award through fiscal year 2025, providing insight into the types of task orders that could go to the selected IDIQ contractors. They include construction of an ambulatory care center in the San Diego area and alteration of another at Camp Pendleton, plus construction of barracks, a fire station, SEAL team operations facility and battery energy storage, as well as various others.

“We look forward to leveraging the capabilities of this exceptional group of contractors to modernize and construct facilities that are value-added to our supported commanders,” said Capt. Laurie Scott, commanding officer of NAVFAC Southwest, in a statement.
