CMS Wins $3.7M Fuels Project at Mansfield Lahm ANGB

Maumee, OH – CMS Corporation announced today it has been awarded a $3.7M project to Repair and Upgrade POL Facilities at Mansfield Lahm Air National Guard Base (ANGB), OH. This project falls under CMS’s prime East Regional Engineering and Construction (RE&C) Contract, awarded by the United States Air Force.

Work on this Design-Bid-Build project will include valve replacements, paving, curbing improvements, pantograph loading arms and the installation of four canopies.

CMS CEO, Ernest Enrique, stated, “CMS is pleased to begin work at the Mansfield Lahm Air National Guard Base in Ohio. Working in a state where many of our Team Members reside is always a welcome opportunity. Our extensive fuels resume, combined with our network of local resources, will ensure successful delivery of this project.”

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.

CMS Awarded $32M Hangar Renovation at WPAFB

MAUMEE, OH – CMS Corporation (CMS), an experienced DoD construction prime contractor, announced today it has been awarded a $32.2 million design-build project to convert Hangar F/20006 to a Program Executive Office (PEO) space at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base (WPAFB), OH.  The award was made under CMS’s Regional Engineering and Construction (RE&C) East Region prime contract with the Air Force.

Hangar F/20006, a WWII-era facility, is considered a historical structure, eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places as a contributing structure to the Wright Field Historic District; therefore, maintenance of the hangar structure, features and aesthetics are paramount. CMS will design and renovate approximately 37,340 SF of existing space and provide a new 2nd floor within the open hangar, for a combined total of approximately 60,000 SF of office space. At a minimum, this project will support a 300-person mission at the base.

Midwest-based architect/engineering firm American Structurepoint is teamed with CMS for the design effort. The PEO space will be designed, constructed and certified as meeting High Performance and Sustainable Building Standards.

Company CEO Ernest Enrique noted, “CMS has a long and successful history working at Air Force installations across the continental US, Hawaii, and Guam, and in particular at Wright-Patterson AFB. This project represents our fourth major award at this base under our current RE&C East Region contract. Additional projects being executed at WPAFB at this time include dormitory renovations, high temperature/hot water and steam line repairs, and HVAC work. We look forward to working with the Air Force to deliver another top-quality project to support the Base mission.”

This project is expected to be completed in 2 years. The Air Force Installation Contracting Agency (AFICA) is the contracting activity.
