7GAE Wins Army Contract for Red River Depot
SEVEN GENERATIONS A+E WINS ARMY CONTRACT FOR RED RIVER DEPOT
-Latest Agreement Further Expands Company’s $50MM Federal Business-
May 14, 2018 – Kalamazoo, MI – Seven Generations Architecture & Engineering, the premier tribally owned, 8(a) and HUBZone certified architecture and engineering company, was awarded the task order to deliver a detailed design package for the Red River Army Depot in Texarkana, Texas on Feb. 13. The contract is valued at more than $800,000 and adds to Seven Generations A+E’s fast-growing federal contracting business.
The Red River Army Depot project calls for the complete restoration and modernization of the South Wash Rack Facility (Building No. 362). The construction-ready procurement package will include drawings, specifications, cost estimates and design analysis for the building.
“The Red Rock Army Depot win represents the successful leveraging of our Tribal ownership to land federal contracts,” explains Jeremy Berg, managing director of Seven Generations A+E. “These contracts will provide an avenue of continual growth for our company as the federal government typically procures architecture and engineering services in five-year increments rather than on a project-by-project basis.”
With the addition of the Red River project, which is the first task order for the HUBZone USACE Ft. Worth contract valued at $5 million during the next five years, Seven Generations A+E now has approximately $50 million in federal government capacity through the Indefinite Delivery-Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) program during the next five years. Seven Generations A+E’s three other IDIQ contracts include VA IDIQ Northern Tier in Michigan under contract through Alliance Consulting|Seven Generations A+E Joint Venture, valued at $9 million during the next five years; USACE Huntsville Medical Center in Alabama, valued at $25 million during the next five years (a total of $225 million is shared by eight A+E firms); and USACE Ft. Worth in Texas, valued at $10 million during the next five years.
Mno-Bmadsen, the non-gaming investment instrumentality of the Pokagon Band, founded Seven Generations A+E in 2012. The portfolio company expertise and offerings have expanded significantly since then to become certified as an 8(a) small disadvantaged business, and HUBZone company that employs people in historically underutilized business areas. These two important designations permit Seven Generations A+E to receive specialized consideration when bidding on government projects.
“Our growth potential in the federal contracting market is exponential,” says Berg. “As a tribally-owned business, our company leverages U.S. government privileges, immunities and rights expressly granted through the Mno-Bmadsen charter.”
Seven Generations A+E’s federal clients include the General Services Administration, Indian Health Service, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, U.S. Bureau of Indiana Affairs, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Naval Facilities Engineering Command.
