Maumee, OH – CMS Corporation announced today it has been awarded a $54 million task order to construct the P260 P-8A Aircraft Airfield at Naval Air Station (NAS) Whidbey Island, WA.  This task order falls under the $320 million NAVFAC Northwest MEGA MACC contract and is CMS’s third award under this MACC. 

The scope of work under this task order is to replace a taxiway, shoulders and runway by increasing concrete depth and to construct a peripheral taxiway to support aircraft loading of homeported P-8A and C-40 aircraft. The project also includes electrical lighting replacement, stormwater system repairs, and installation of an oil water separator.

CMS is pleased to be working with NAVFAC Northwest to enhance NAS Whidbey Island (NASWI) infrastructure.  NASWI is one of four major Northwest installations located in the Puget Sound, the US Navy’s third largest fleet concentration area. The Base is home to 20 active duty US Navy Squadrons and 3 US Navy Reserve Squadrons. The air station also maintains a search-and-rescue unit providing 24-hour day and night maritime, inland and mountainous rescue support for DoD personnel and the greater Pacific Northwest community.

CMS Chairman and CEO, Ernest Enrique, PE, stated, “We are excited to have the opportunity to continue work in the Pacific Northwest, particularly at this strategic and logistically challenging Base. Our robust airfield program affords us previous experience and lessons learned that will ensure safe, timely, and successful project delivery.
