WATSONVILLE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Oct 12, 2020–

Granite (NYSE:GVA) announced it has been awarded a $16 million task order contract by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) for the Permanent Housing Construction – New Construction for Disaster Declaration project in Saipan, CNMI. The contract will be booked into Granite’s fourth quarter 2020 backlog.

This project is part of a previously awarded U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s national multiple award construction contract (NMACC II) to construct twenty new homes, replacing those severely damaged by Super Typhoon Yutu, the strongest typhoon ever recorded to impact the Mariana Islands, and the second-strongest to strike the United States or its territories.

As part of their design-build services, Granite will be responsible for all permitting, site design and construction of all the cast-in-place concrete homes. Granite has worked in Guam and the Marianas Islands since 2011.

“Our team in Guam is well-positioned to perform this work and leverage our locally-established infrastructure,” said Granite Senior Vice President and Group Manager Matt Tyler. “We are honored to be selected to help rebuild this community and to assist the residents of Saipan.”

Construction is expected to begin in fall 2020 and conclude by spring 2021.
