Acciona CMS JV Wins $500M Rota MACC

MADRID, SPAIN and BARGERSVILLE, IN, USA – ACCIONA CMS JV announced today it has been awarded the Navy’s $500 million Design-Build/Design-Bid-Build Multiple Award Construction Contract (DB/DBB MACC) for projects primarily located in Rota, Spain. A joint venture (JV) between Madrid-based ACCIONA and Indiana-based CMS Corporation (CMS), the ACCIONA CMS JV was one of seven firms awarded a contract.

Under the MACC, the JV will provide DB and DBB 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 issued 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, VA, 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 construct a Port Operations facility (seed project) at NS Rota, and history of outstanding past performance. The combination of ACCIONA’s Rota region experience and expansive resources, coupled with CMS’s NAVFAC indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract management experience, made for a winning combination. The ACCIONA CMS JV Team also includes US-based American Structurepoint as the Designer of Record for task orders issued under this MACC.

Ernest Enrique, CEO of CMS Corporation, noted, “CMS has entered into a strategic partnership with ACCIONA for this pursuit. This award represents the first time in recent memory that a DoD construction contract has been awarded to a JV between Spanish and US contractors at Naval Station Rota. The combined resources, Rota region experience and IDIQ management expertise of the JV will enable us to deliver projects safely, on time and budget, and with a high level of satisfaction to the Navy.”   CMS is an award-winning construction contractor with DB experience and strong self-performance capabilities in mechanical, piping and fabrication work.

Its standard business practices of empowering its employees, partnering with its clients, and consistently applying innovative solutions to project challenges enable CMS to provide its customers with the best value for their construction dollars.

CMS Wins $70M Dover AFB Small Business MACC

MAUMEE, OH – CMS Corporation (CMS) has been awarded a $70M Multiple Award Construction Contract (MACC) at Dover Air Force Base (AFB), DE. This contract is 100% set-aside for small business, with a 1-year base period and six 1-year option periods. Task orders issued under the MACC can range up to $10M dollars and will require either single discipline or multi-discipline design services and/or general construction for new, renovation and addition-type projects at Dover AFB. Projects may also require comprehensive interior design, lead and asbestos abatement and/or incorporation of sustainable features.

The Government received 29 proposals for this procurement and CMS was one of only eight firms selected to receive a contract. The estimated contract completion date is January 2028. The 436 CONS PKA at Dover AFB is the contracting agency.

In other news, CMS was also recently awarded a project for the design-build renovation of Hangar 706 at Dover AFB. The scope of work includes design and construction services to update and repair architectural/interior, HVAC, controls, fire protection, fire alarm system, and electrical at the hangar, as well as repair of the exterior wash rack drains at the site.

Ernest Enrique, CEO, noted, “These awards strengthen our presence at this important Base and throughout the region. In addition to these recent awards, CMS is currently working on a project to bury overhead electric lines at Dover. We look forward to the successful execution of these new projects and the opportunity to work with this important client in support of the Base mission.”

CMS Caps Off Year with Additional $13.5M in Awards

MAUMEE, OH – CMS Corporation (CMS) is closing out 2020 with two significant awards – one at Dover Air Force Base (AFB), DE, and the other at Buckley AFB, CO. At Dover AFB, CMS was awarded a $7.8M project to bury primary medium voltage overhead distribution lines located along the north half of Atlantic Street and the flight line. This project is Phase 5 of a 6-phase project to relocate overhead lines basewide. Once completed, the project will yield increased power capacity and reliability for the Base, as well as significant savings on maintenance costs associated with replacing weathered or damaged light poles, insulator maintenance, and line damage from ice storms.  

At Buckley AFB, CMS received a $5.7M award to replace power plant controls at Building 433. Equipment, computer hardware and software for the Power Plant Control System (PPCS) at the facility is old and in need of replacement. Programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and generator controls are obsolete and no longer supported by manufacturers, making it impossible to find these replacement parts. CMS, teamed with local controls/systems integrator, Winn-Marion, will replace the generator controllers and PLCs making up the PPCS with new units, adding redundancy and additional functionality so the system can be more effectively monitored and controlled by power plant personnel.

Both projects were awarded under CMS’s existing prime indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contracts with the US Air Force – the Regional Engineering and Construction (RE&C) East Region and RE&C Central Region contracts, respectively. CMS CEO Ernest Enrique stated, “These two awards mark the end of a challenging, yet highly successful year for CMS. From the onset of the pandemic, our No. 1 goal has been to protect our team members, their families, and our clients against the spread of the virus, while continuing to provide a high level of service to our clients. Like others in the construction industry, we have faced many challenges over these past months, but together we have been largely successful in meeting this goal.”

CMS is currently performing work for our Department of Defense customers at military installations in the Pacific, Caribbean and across the United States.
