“Bill says turn it off…” Hensel Phelps Construction Company in Chantilly, VA received a $5.4 million firm-fixed-price Modification 0002 to previously awarded contract (N40080-05-C-0161) to install a Laser Perimeter System for the hangar and air traffic control tower at Naval Air Station, Patuxent River. This contract falls under the design/build contract for Presidential Helicopter Programs Support Facility. This contract modification is executed under the terms and conditions of the existing contract by the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC), Washington in Washington, DC. The original contract, Phase I, was competed via the NAVFAC e-solicitation website with 12 offers received, and based on the results of the technical evaluation, three of the 12 firms who submitted Phase I proposals were invited to participate in the Phase II competitive negotiation process. The Phase I award was made on Jan. 27, 2005. Work on Phase II will be performed in Patuxent River, MD and is expected to be complete by October 2006.
