Stantec selected by U.S. Navy’s Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command Southwest for critical IDIQ contract

Firm to support NAVFAC with focus on encroachment management implementation and mission readiness


Stantec, a global leader in sustainable design and engineering, has been selected by Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command (NAVFAC) Southwest to lead multidiscipline architect-engineer and consulting services as part of a five-year, US$30 million indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) single award task order contract.

The IDIQ contract awarded to Stantec Government Services focuses on encroachment management implementation and mission readiness, sustainment, and compatibility services for NAVFAC, mostly at Navy and Marine Corps facilities in Southern California. Through this contract, Stantec may support additional NAVFAC areas of responsibility. Encroachment, as defined by NAVFAC, is primarily any non-Navy action planned or executed that inhibits, curtails, or possesses the potential to impede the performance of Navy activities.

This award follows a similar five-year IDIQ under which Stantec (formerly Cardno Government Services) helped develop the Navy’s enterprise decision-support system for encroachment management. This system supports Navy and Marine Corps installations in achieving wide-ranging mission sustainment objectives.

“We’re honored to continue working with the U.S. Navy and NAVFAC on these critical encroachment and mission readiness projects,” said Bill Halperin, president for Stantec Government Services. “This contract will support the U.S. Navy’s mission and ensure resiliency through providing innovative solutions to encroachment challenges.”

Comprehensive service delivery
Through the new contract, Stantec will continue to assist NAVFAC with the following:

  • Land use planning
  • Encroachment action plans and strategies to minimize or avoid the effects of encroachment on mission sustainment
  • Geospatial analysis
  • Compatible use plans for Navy and Marine Corps air installations and training ranges
  • Strategic engagement and communications plans and public outreach materials
  • Custom web-based encroachment management, decision-making, impact assessment, and reporting tools

Stantec will also conduct a variety of special studies for NAVFAC under this contract. These can include renewable energy studies, economic impact modeling, National Environmental Policy Act documentation, traffic studies, visual impact assessments, flight hazard analyses, unmanned aerial system flights for data acquisition, environmental and real estate surveys, and after-action training assessments.  

Expanded expertise for multiple levels of government
The contract highlights the value created by Stantec’s acquisition of Cardno late last year. Cardno has enhanced Stantec’s presence and growth prospects in local and federal government programs, infrastructure services, and environmental services, among other areas.

The encroachment management IDIQ adds to Stantec’s portfolio of work with the U.S. Navy and NAVFAC. In recent years, Stantec encroachment management staff supported the creation of a project management and GIS web-based application called the Mission Compatibility Analysis Tool, which enables efficient evaluation, documentation, and communication of potential developments that may encroach upon military missions.
