August 14, 2014

BARGERSVILLE, IN – The JWC CMS JV, a joint venture between Jack Wayte Construction and CMS Corporation, has been awarded an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (ID/IQ) Design-Build/Design-Bid-Build Vertical Construction 8(a) Multiple Award Task Order Contract (MATOC) by the US Army Corps of Engineers Albuquerque District. Tasks performed under the MATOC will include construction projects in New Mexico and portions of other southwestern states. Projects will range in value up to $5 million, with a total combined contract value of $49 million over a 2-year period of performance. Only five contracts were awarded from a field of 28 proposing firms.

Project work will include the new construction, renovation and repair of HVAC and electrical systems, site work and utilities, and buildings for the Department of Defense, the Department of Energy, the Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and the Border Patrol. Some projects may involve complex phasing arrangements, work at controlled access facilities, and/or secure communications installations.

According to CMS Chief Executive Officer Ernest Enrique, this new MATOC will enable CMS to “continue building a successful resume of work in the southwestern US, while strengthening our working relationship with Jack Wayte Construction.” CMS and New Mexico-based Jack Wayte Construction are also working together in a joint venture arrangement under another $140M MATOC for the US Army Corps of Engineers Fort Worth District.
