The Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) has awarded a $50 million indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract to HKS and WSP USA, a joint venture, for architect-engineering services for the design of medical projects. The joint venture was the single-source provider selected for the contract.

HKS|WSP is delivering on six recently awarded task orders, including feasibility/planning studies for buildings in Southern California; interior renovations at the Naval Hospital in Portsmouth, Va.; and two new medical buildings.

The new buildings include an approximately 44,000-square-foot medical dental clinic at the Marine Corps Air Station in Jacksonville, N.C., and an approximately 478,000-square-foot research and laboratory addition to the medical school at the Uniformed Services University of Health Services in Bethesda, Md. This roughly $280-million project will comprise approximately 120,000 square feet of laboratories, a bio-safety Level 3 laboratory and six radiology rooms, including MRIs.

The HKS|WSP joint venture will provide a wide range of services as part of the IDIQ contract.
