The US Department of Defense has issued two significant recent AEC contracts for the San Diego area.

Michael Baker International Inc. from San Diego has been awarded a maximum amount $99,000,000 firm-fixed-price, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity, architect-engineer contract for civil engineering services located in the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Southwest area of responsibility (AOR).

“The work to be performed provides for the preparation of design-build and design-bid-build construction contract packages; site investigations, studies, surveys, and reports; cost estimates; construction contract support services or post construction award services; technical reviews of government-prepared request for proposal for design-build projects and/or full plans and specifications for design-bid-build projects; preparation of DD Form 1391 or similar planning and programming related documents; incidental architectural, structural, geotechnical, mechanical, electrical, and environmental work; identification and abatement methods for existing asbestos-containing materials, lead-based paint, and other hazardous materials.”

Work will be performed at various Navy and Marine Corps facilities and other government facilities within the NAVFAC Southwest AOR including, but not limited to, California (87 percent); Arizona (5 percent); Nevada (5 percent); Colorado (1 percent); New Mexico (1 percent); and Utah (1 percent), and is expected to be completed by June 2024.

As well, Manson Construction Co., Seattle, Washington, has been awarded an $89,100,000 firm-fixed-price construction contract for the design and construction replacement of Pier 8, Naval Base San Diego.

“The work to be performed provides for the design and construction of a new single-deck pile supported reinforced concrete pier to replace existing Pier 8. Utilities include potable water, sanitary sewer, compressed air, oily waste and compensating ballast water collection systems. Electrical utilities include underground distribution lines from shore side to pier including switching station, primary and secondary distribution systems, telephone, coaxial and fiber optic communications, supervisory control and data acquisitions systems for energy monitoring and control, and fire alarm system. The pier includes primary and secondary fenders, and new load out ramp cradles on the quaywall on each side. The contract also contains two unexercised options, which if exercised would increase cumulative contract value to $93,250,000.”

Work is expected to be completed by October 2021.
