Infinite Energy Construction, a Kansas City-based electrical and general contractor, was recently awarded two major multi-year federal government contracts, including large projects for the United States Navy and Air Force.

Announced on Sept. 16, the Navy contract will be completed at the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division, in Crane, Ind., and will include renovation, new construction, design build and repair work across all divisions of the base. Two IEC employees will be based out of the company’s Bloomfield office, and IEC anticipates more will be added based on workload needs. IEC was one of five contractors chosen from across the country to complete the work, which begins immediately.

Additionally, IEC was awarded a SABER (Simplified Acquisition of Base Engineer Requirements) contract in late July at Joint Base Charleston (S.C.), which serves both the Navy and the U.S. Air Force. Valued at $48 million, the work includes a mix of maintenance, repair and minor construction work. IEC was the sole contractor awarded this five-year contract, and work began on Sept. 1.

“We are honored and proud to work for the U.S. Armed Forces and support their mission to defend our country,” said Nilson Goes, chief of operations and general manager of IEC. “Our military demands and deserves the best, and we’re looking forward to providing just that.”

IEC has a long history of providing high-quality electrical and construction services on military installations, including several projects at Whiteman Air Force Base in Knob Noster, Mo., Fort Leavenworth in Leavenworth, Kan., and the U.S. Army’s National Training Center in Fort Irwin, Calif.

“Our military clients demand a strict adherence to schedule and demand the highest-caliber work––which they rightfully deserve,” Goes said. “Our proven record of quality not only allows us to continue serving our military, but also makes us extremely effective and efficient when we’re working for a commercial client here at home.”
