US Navy’s Naval Facilities Engineering Command selects Stantec for large waterfront project support

The company will lead multidiscipline architect-engineer services at Naval facilities throughout the Northeastern United States

The US Navy’s Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Mid-Atlantic has selected global design firm Stantec to lead multidiscipline architect-engineer services as part of a five-year, US$60 million indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract. Through this IDIQ contract, Stantec will support the planning, design, construction, and renovation of large waterfront projects within NAVFAC Mid-Atlantic’s North area of responsibility (AOR), including the work at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard (PNSY) in Kittery, Maine.

The IDIQ contract expands on Stantec’s more than 60-year history supporting NAVFAC and Department of Defense (DoD) projects, including the firm’s fourth consecutive Waterfront IDIQ with NAVFAC Mid-Atlantic. Stantec is currently delivering on its previous IDIQ contract with NAVFAC Mid-Atlantic, which recently received a $30 million supplement in contracting capacity, resulting in a total contracting capacity of $90 million.

Chris Williams, senior vice-president for Stantec’s US Federal Programme, added: “Over the past 10 years, our team has helped deliver over 40 mission-critical projects, including work to advance the Navy’s Shipyard Infrastructure Optimisation Programme (SIOP).”

Stantec has been leading the design of multiple infrastructure projects at PNSY, as part of the Navy’s 20-year SIOP. The $20 billion programme is focused on rebuilding and modernising shipyards at four US locations – Kittery, Maine; Norfolk, Virginia; Puget Sound in Washington; and at Pearl Harbour in Hawaii.

With this latest IDIQ contract, Stantec’s scope of work will include structural, civil, mechanical, electrical, architectural, planning, environment, cost estimating, and geotechnical services.

Work will primarily focus on Naval facilities in Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rohde Island, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, and Delaware, with the potential to include NAVFAC Mid-Atlantic’s other AORs as needed. Waterfront project types may include piers, wharves, dry docks, berthing and mooring, dredging, coastal and shoreline protection, and waterfront-related utilities. Ancillary projects may also involve buildings, roads, bridges, seismic evaluation and design, storm water management, and civil engineering studies.

By combining the expertise of multidisciplinary planners, scientists, architects, and engineers, Stantec has delivered solutions for waterfront developments and revitalisations. In addition to supporting Naval facility projects, the Stantec team has also led the planning, design, and engineering of various waterfront projects, such as the Panama Canal Expansion and the Honolulu Harbour 2050 Master Plan, as well as shipyard modernisation projects at the Canadian Forces Base Esquimalt and the Seaspan Vancouver Shipyard, both in British Columbia.
