PEARL HARBOR (NNS) -- Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Hawaii awarded a Multiple Award Construction Contract (MACC), with a maximum dollar value of $500 million, Sept. 17 to six construction companies, three of which are Hawaii-based.

All work under the MACC will be completed in Hawaii, and will include the construction, repair, and alteration of waterfront-related structures and facilities, dredging, and other infrastructure improvements.

"We are very pleased to have awarded this contract," said James Murakami, a NAVFAC Hawaii contract specialist. "It will enable the Navy at Pearl Harbor to quickly achieve much needed improvements to shore-side infrastructure over the next few years without having to generate huge amounts of paperwork for individual projects."

The award work requirements will be divided among six construction companies. They are General Construction Co., Poulsbo, Wash., Hawaiian Dredging Construction Co., Honolulu, Hawaii, Manson-Nan Joint Venture, Honolulu, Hawaii, Nova Group, Napa, Calif., Triton Marine Construction Corp., Bremerton, Wash., and Watts-Healy Tibbitts Joint Venture, Honolulu, Hawaii.

The six contractors went through a thorough acquisition selection process and were chosen after the Navy determined they had the resources to accomplish the various tasks at the best value to the government.

"By awarding a MACC, the Navy and these six contractors will be able to save time and resources because proposals and contracts will not have to be issued for individual projects," said Murakami. "This will significantly streamline the procurement process."

The maximum dollar value (or cap) for all six contracts combined is $500 million. All work is set to be completed in 2014.
