Kansas City, MO – Infinite Energy Construction, a Kansas City-based electrical and general contractor, was recently awarded a major three-year federal government contract at Fort Hood, Texas, one of the largest Army bases in the United States and the world.
Announced Jan. 9, the job order contract (JOC) is administered by the United States Army Corps of Engineers. The contract will be valid through 2020 and is not to exceed $30 million (or $10 million per year). Work on the base will include new construction, utility work, renovations, repairs, and secure-area projects across various sites.
“We’re obviously honored and excited for the opportunity,” said Nilson Goes, chief of operations and general manager of IEC. “It’s always an honor to work on these types of military installations where we have the chance to give back to the men and women who protect our country, and support their construction needs so they can continue their important work.”
IEC has a long history of providing high-quality electrical and construction services on military installations, including several projects near the Kansas City area at Whiteman Air Force Base in Knob Noster, Mo., and Fort Leavenworth in Leavenworth, Kan., as well as others across the country including the U.S. Army’s National Training Center in Fort Irwin, Calif., and Joint Base Charleston in South Carolina. Not only does IEC work on these military bases but it also commits to hiring a large number of veterans. In fact, the company is proud to boast a 30-percent veteran employment rate, significantly higher than the national average.
The company will spend the next 30 to 45 days establishing a new office in Fort Hood, located just south of Austin. In addition to this type of government contract, the company also specializes in electrical and general contracting projects in the Kansas City area and beyond.
