KBR Provides Construction Services to Key U.S. Base in Africa through $110M in Contracts
HOUSTON – April 22, 2020 – KBR (NYSE: KBR) announced today it has been awarded a $15 million bridge contract by the Naval Facilities Engineering Command Europe, Africa, Southwest Asia (NAVFAC EURAFSWA) for repair, maintenance and construction services at Camp Lemonnier in Djibouti, Africa.
This is a bridge contract for an existing indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) job order contract (JOC) KBR previously won in 2014. This six-month contract brings the total ceiling value to $65 million.
Under the bridge contract, KBR will perform engineering, design, new construction, renovation, repairs, maintenance, replacement, alterations, demolition and other construction tasks at Camp Lemonnier and its associated Chabelley Air Field. For more than 30 years, KBR has supported multiple JOCs in the U.S. and overseas, establishing a legacy of delivering high-quality enduring projects.
This contract follows the recently awarded Camp Lemonnier Djibouti Mini-Multiple Award Construction Contract (MACC) under which KBR will continue providing construction, renovation, alteration and repair services at multiple bases across Djibouti and Kenya. The MACC contract includes one base year and four option years and has a total ceiling value of $95 million.
KBR’s work through both contracts complements its existing base operating support at Camp Lemonnier, highlighting the company’s premiere construction and services capabilities. The company has provided base operating support services at Camp Lemonnier, the largest U.S. base in Africa, since 2013. Its work in the region dates back to 2002.
“These contracts demonstrate the Navy’s desire to continue working with a proven partner that has a track record of performing on a large scale,” said Byron Bright, KBR President, Government Solutions U.S. “KBR will keep delivering – safely and successfully – its reliable expertise in this austere and remote environment.”
While performing vital services in Djibouti and Kenya, KBR has achieved almost 25 million hours without a lost-time incident. As a leading base operations support provider, KBR serves U.S. and allied military forces, and diplomatic and civilian personnel deployed around the world.
