NV5 Wins Project and Construction Management Services Contract for California's High-Speed Rail Program

HOLLYWOOD, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 01/19/16 -- NV5 Global, Inc. (the "Company" or "NV5") (NASDAQ: NVEE), a provider of professional and technical engineering and consulting solutions, announced today that it was selected to provide Project and Construction Management Services for Construction Package 4 (CP 4). More specifically, NV5 will be providing construction management oversight and third party coordination services in addition to surveying, materials testing, and public outreach support services. To navigate the highly competitive bid process that preceded this contract win, NV5 entered a teaming agreement with HNTB Corporation as a sub consultant to share work at a 60/40 split. NV5 anticipates fees after the split and after small business sub-consultant requirements to be between $7 and $8 million.

The CP4 construction area is a 22-mile stretch within Tulare and Kern Counties, passing through the City of Wasco and ending near the City of Shafter. It is bounded by a point approximately one mile north of the Tulare/Kern County Line at the terminus of Construction Package 2-3 and Poplar Avenue to the south. CP 4 work will include construction of at-grade, retained fill and aerial sections of the high-speed rail alignment, relocation of four miles of existing Burlington Northern Santa Fe (BNSF) tracks, construction of waterway and wildlife crossings and roadway reconstructions, relocations and closures. This phase of construction received state and federal environmental clearances in 2014 and is estimated to cost $400 to $500 million, according to the California High Speed Rail Authority.

Dickerson Wright, PE, Chairman and CEO of NV5, said, "Winning the CP 4 Project and Construction Management Services contract from the California High Speed Rail Authority is a great achievement for us and a great demonstration of the strength of our Civil PM group in transportation in the Central Valley."

Todd George, PE, COO of Civil Program Management at NV5, added, "We are proud of this opportunity to fulfill such an important role in the delivery of one of the nation's highest profile Design Build Projects. I can think of no other team with a greater combination of talent, resources, and local expertise needed for this specific project."
