Indian Head collage(click to view full) John C. Grimberg, Co., Inc. in Rockville, MD received a $10.9 million firm-fixed-price contract for the construction of the Agile Chemical Facility at Naval Surface Warfare Center, Indian Head, MD. Work will be performed in Indian Head, MD and is expected to be complete by October 2008. This contract was competitively procured, with 2 proposals received by the Naval Engineering Command in Washington, DC (N40080-07-C-0161). Indian Head’s specialty is “energetics” – if if it propels something or blows up, they’re the people to call. This includes IED land mine research. Unsurprisingly, work to be performed for this contract provides for the construction of a facility to manufacture nitrate eaters, new buildings (including a control building for remote process operation), tanks, containment structures, and other supporting equipment and facilities, stairways, platforms and electrically conductive floors. The contractor will also upgrade storage and delivery facilities for chemicals and raw materials; product handling and transfer facilities; a wastewater treatment system; and a spent acid processing system. This project will include the demolition of 5 substandard building at the existing manufacturing plant. Wonder if the guys working at Indian Head will get to help…
