KIRA Construction Management LLC, has been awarded a $19M contract for US Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba (NSGB) Port Operations Support Services, CEO Richard Rinehart announced today. This contract has a base year and three option years of performance.
KIRA Construction Management LLC (KIRA) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Tlingit Haida Tribal Business Corporation (THTBC), owned by the largest tribe in Alaska with over 30,000 members. KIRA teamed with MCM, Inc, as their subcontractor for this effort.
“THTBC companies are starting their third new contract within the first four months of 2018.” Rinehart said. “KIRA continues to bring best value services at the lowest prices in the industry with the award of Naval Station Guantanamo Bay Port Operations contract.”
