Fort Worth, TX-based Modular Management Group, Inc. has been awarded the contract to provide the Next NGA West’s integrated project modular office facility as a facet of the largest federal investment project in St. Louis history.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers awarded the $3.1 million contract on July 10.
According to the Corps, this temporary modular office facility will provide space for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Kansas City District and National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency and is expected to be occupied in early 2020.
Founded in 2005 as a minority-owned small business, MMG’s president is Hector Rodriguez. The design-build general contractor has a resume of government projects including a three-story 18,500 square-foot modular administrative facility for Veterans Affairs in Ann Arbor, MI; a 40,000-square-foot secured modular facility at Eglin Air Force Base in western Florida; and an 18,000-square-foot Invisible Wounds Center at Eglin Air Force Base, all which are permanent modular buildings. MMG’s list of temporary modular building projects includes a 13,104-square-foot temporary office modular project at Randolph Air Force Base in Texas; a 4,620-square-foot Open Secret Facility at Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana; and 14,295 square feet of office space at Edwards Air Force Base in southern California.
“We would like to thank the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for the contract award, and the opportunity to provide the temporary modular facility in support of the N2W project,” Rodriguez said.
Next NGA West is a mega-project jointly managed by the NGA, the Corps and the U.S. Air Force. The 97-acre site is in the historic St. Louis Place neighborhood at Jefferson and Cass Avenues.
In related NGA news, St. Louis development officials concluded a public comment period July 30 to gain input relative to the $25 million to $30 million in accessibility-related improvements planned for Jefferson Avenue and Parnell Street.
