GUAM – Mortenson Construction, the Minneapolis-based prime contractor on the $4 billion Guam MACC, is bidding for a spot on the $3 billion Mamizu MACC in a joint venture with Arizona based Sundt Construction Inc.

The Mortenson Sundt Guam joint venture, which combines the 24th largest general contractor in the U.S. with the 54th largest, is actively seeking subcontracting partners as it prepares its bid for the Mamizu MACC prime contractor awards by the deadline of May 16, Chris Norcross, leader of the joint venture, told

“Mortenson Sundt has the capacity, expertise, determination, and commitment to respond to all task orders in delivering this substantial MACC program,” said Norcross, who is also the on-island leader for Mortenson’s joint venture on the Guam MACC.

Both Mortenson and Sundt bring to the joint venture experience working with the Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Pacific, a combined professional staff of more than 3,400 and individual revenues of more than $1 billion a year, according to Norcross.

Mortenson is a prime contractor on the Guam MACC in its joint venture with Kiewit Building Group, a unit of Omaha-Nebraska-based Kiewit Corporation, which is the fourth largest general contractor in the U.S., according to a revenue ranking published by Engineering News Record.

Mortenson, founded in 1954 and with a professional workforce of more than 2,000 people, has specialized in work for various government departments and recorded revenue of more than $2.4 billion in 2010. The company says its “strengths include aviation and hangars, office and related facilities, healthcare, hotels and dormitories, data centers, power/renewable energy, and education facilities and training facilities.”

The 120-year-old, employee-owned Sundt posted 2010 revenue of more than $1 billion and has completed 35 projects for NAVFAC, Norcross said. Sundt’s project history includes civil infrastructure, military housing and operational facilities, laboratories and healthcare, education, data centers, industrial facilities, and office and related facilities.
