JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (NNS) -- Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Southeast awarded a design-build indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity multiple award construction contract (IDIQ MACC) June 29 to five contractors in the Southeastern United States.

The contractors awarded include Sauer Incorporated of Jacksonville, Fla.; The Haskell Company of Jacksonville, Fla.; Caddell Construction Company, Inc. of Montgomery, Ala.; Roy Anderson Corp. of Gulfport, Miss.; and PCL Construction Services, Inc. of Orlando, Fla., for general construction type projects at Department of Defense activities within the NAVFAC Southeast area of responsibility of northern Florida and southern Georgia.

The work to be performed includes general building type projects such as new construction, renovations, alterations and repair of facilities and infrastructure, roofing, demolition and routine renovation.

"This contract and the follow-on projects directly enable NAVFAC Southeast to continue our mission of supporting the fleet, fighter and family," said Lt. Cmdr. Dan Stoddard, assistant operations officer. "Also, having IDIQ MACCs in place reduces execution lead time by initiating task orders when work needs to be performed on Commander Navy Region Southeast (CNRSE) installations."

Facilities receiving the work include, but are not limited to, aviation and aircraft facilities, marine facilities, barracks and personnel housing, administrative facilities, warehouses and supply facilities, training facilities, personnel support and service facilities and security level facilities. Abatement and handling of hazardous or regulated materials will also be included.

Each contract will be for one base year with four one-year option periods at a maximum amount of $250 million for all five contracts. The work will be concentrated at, but not limited to, Naval Air Station (NAS) Jacksonville, Fla.; Naval Station Mayport, Fla.; Naval Support Activity Orlando, Fla.; Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, Ga.; and surrounding supported commands in northern Florida and southern Georgia.

As part of the contract, Sauer Incorporated was awarded a $6.9 million task order for the design and construction of the child development center at NAS Jacksonville (CDC Jacksonville). The nearly 31,000 square foot, one-story facility will include storage, shade structures, playground and equipment, fencing, paving and site improvements. Work on this project also includes demolition of the existing CDC Jacksonville buildings and foundations.

"We are very excited that this new child development center (CDC) is being built as NAS Jacksonville and finally moving forward. This new center will increase our capacity and allow us to better serve our Sailors and their families in a state-of-the-art facility with the latest amenities," said NAS Jacksonville Morale Welfare and Recreation Director John Bushick.

"This CDC will be the largest center that will be constructed in Navy with a capacity of 302. The infant (6 weeks -12 months) capacity will increase from 40 to 56; the pre-toddler (12-24 months) capacity will increase from 30 to 60; toddler (24-36 months) capacity will increase from 56 to 70; preschool (3 to 5 years) capacity will decrease from 120 to 116," Bushick continued.

"This will make the total increase from 246 to 302 children. We currently do not have any excess capacity in other rooms to accommodate infant and pre-toddler children. Once the new CDC is open, I believe the wait list will be very short, and we should be able to accommodate most children in the CDC."

The CDC Jacksonville is scheduled to be completed by November 2010.

The expected completion date for all work on this contract is June 2014.
