$500M Navy Contract Awarded to Hoosier Firm

American Structurepoint, as a subconsultant to the ACCIONA CMS Joint Venture (JV), has been awarded the US Navy’s $500 million design-build/design-bid-build multiple construction contract (MACC) for projects located primarily in Rota, Spain. American Structurepoint will be the designer of record for task orders issued under this MACC, providing architectural, civil engineering, and structural engineering services supporting new construction and renovation task orders. The ACCIONA CMS JV, a joint venture between Madrid-based ACCIONA, and Indiana-based CMS Corporation (CMS), was one of seven firms awarded a contract.

Under the MACC, the JV will provide design-build and design-build-bid general construction projects located primarily at Naval Station (NS) Rota; however, the contract may also be used throughout the Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command (NAVFAC) Atlantic area of responsibility worldwide. Task orders under the MACC can range from $8 million to $64 million and include construction of airfield, industrial, infrastructure, administrative training, retail, food service, munition storage and community support facilities. The contract duration is seven years, with expected completion in June 2029. NAVFAC Atlantic, headquartered in Norfolk, Virginia, is the contracting activity.

MACC awardees were rated on their proposed organization for the MACC, overall safety approach and record, corporate experience, technical solution to constructing a port operations facility (seed project) at NS Rota, and a history of outstanding performance. The combination of ACCIONA’s Rota region experience and expansive resources, coupled with CMS’ NAVFAC indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract management experience, made for a winning combination.

American Structurepoint President Willis “Rick” Conner stated, “Our firm has a long history of providing high-quality design services for IDIQ contracts throughout the US, and we are honored to join the ACCIONA CMS JV in support of the Navy’s mission at NS Rota and at installations worldwide.”

Ernest Enrique, CEO of CMS Corporation, noted, “This award represents the first time in recent memory that a DoD construction contract has been awarded between Spanish and US contractors at Naval Station Rota. The combined resources, Rota region experience and the IDIQ management expertise of the JV will enable us to deliver projects safety, on time and on budget, with a high level of satisfaction to the Navy.”
