Jacobs will design and build facilities for the U.S. Air Force’s B-21 bomber aircraft under a potential seven-year, $200 million multiple-award task order contract with U.S. Army Corps of Engineers‘ Kansas City District.
The company said Thursday it will perform architecture and engineering services primarily for B-21 facilities at Ellsworth, Dyess and Whiteman air force bases.
USACE will issue individual orders worth up to $50 million under the MATOC, which holds a five-year base period and an option for two additional years of work.
The contract specifically provides for architect-engineer studies, master planning and a wide range of construction documents.
Tim Byers, senior vice president for federal and environmental solutions at Jacobs, said the company will use lessons learned from previous defense-related projects to help the U.S. military make the B-21 a more resilient and sustainable aircraft.
The Department of Defense announced the contract in March. Burns & McDonnell and a joint venture between Pond and FSB will also compete for orders under the contract.
The Northrop Grumman-made B-21 Raider is a stealth bomber designed to deliver precision strikes against long-range targets.
