Cherokee CRC part of BIA contract.

Byline: Journal Record Staff

TULSA Cherokee CRC, a subsidiary of Tulsa-based Cherokee Nation Businesses, is one of seven companies chosen to support a five-year contract with the U.S. Department of Interior's Bureau of Indian Affairs.

The BIA's recent National Multiple Award Construction Contract includes work on buildings and facilities located throughout the U.S. and Indian Country.

CCRC will soon begin the contract's first project by installing a water line to the rural community of Bear Springs, New Mexico. The water line project, at the nearby Old Fort Wingate Elementary School site, will bring a consistent water supply to the rural community of Bear Springs, which will provide clean, safe drinking water and a sufficient water source to fight fires.

The BIA owns the water and sewer lines at the 25-acre Wingate tract. Cherokee CRC has the potential to earn more than $3 million through the water line project.

"Cherokee Nation Businesses' environmental and construction companies have a great history with the Bureau of Indian Affairs," said Jodie Gilbert, program manager for CCRC. "With this award, we will be able to utilize the relationships we have built over the years to serve the BIA and the Native American people in an even greater capacity."

The NMACC projects will include construction, renovation, demolition, equipment and piping repair or replacement, as well as electrical, mechanical and site work. It may also include roofing, painting, fencing installation, removal and disposal of lead based paint or asbestos containing materials, welding, masonry and installing renewable energy source technologies.
