U.S. names nine firms for heavy construction work in U.S. Northeast

Morris Dam

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has awarded contracts to nine firms to provide heavy and civil engineering construction services in its Buffalo District and other areas of the U.S. Northeast.

In a solicitation set aside for small businesses, the Corps' Buffalo District awarded contracts to Strock Enterprises Ltd., Upstate Construction Services, Geo Gradel Co., Great Lakes Dock and Materials LLC, Huffman Equipment Rental Inc., ODDO Construction Services LLC, Ryba Marine Construction Co., SAF Inc. and Tidewater Inc.

The Buffalo District took bids for the work in June. The Corps' Huntington, W.Va., District recruited firms in May for foundation pressure relief well and geophysical survey services at civil works projects in the Corps' extensive Great Lakes and Ohio River Division.

The Buffalo District now awards the multiple award task order contracts for construction activities throughout the Buffalo District, which extends along the U.S. border from Ohio to Maine, possibly for work in the New York/Pennsylvania and Ohio Operations and Maintenance offices area of responsibility, and possibly elsewhere in the Great Lakes and Ohio River Division. The available funding for the contract pool is $40 million over five years.

The Corps said assignments in the Buffalo District could include work on Black Rock Lock between Lake Erie and the Niagara River at Buffalo and on Mount Morris Dam, a large flood protection dam on the Genesee River in Livingston County, N.Y. While Mount Morris does not have hydropower, ECOsponsible Inc. holds a Federal Energy Regulatory Commission preliminary permit (No. 14502) to study building a 1.1-MW Mount Morris hydro project at the site.
