Contingency Contracting

Rapid Response Expertise - Perini Management Services’ logistical skills, developed through years of performing construction projects in remote overseas locations, have been critical assets to various government agencies in the rapid response to both natural and man-made disasters, and in support of military operations overseas.

Following the U.S. intervention in Haiti in 1994 (Operation Restore (Uphold) Democracy) PMSI renovated a military academy and converted it into a civilian police academy. The project was critical to establishment of a new Haitian government after a prolonged period of instability.

As the first U.S. Navy CONCAP contractor, PMSI provided emergency construction services at Marine Corps and Naval stations in the U.S., Puerto Rico and the Caribbean Islands to recover from damages caused by severe hurricanes. Working in Guam under a separate contract, PMSI provided emergency repairs to naval facilities in the wake of Super Typhoon Paka.

When our government had an urgent need to respond to terrorist threats at U.S. embassies following attacks in Lebanon, Tanzania and Kenya, PMSI combined our embassy experience with our ability to mobilize quickly, and managed the design-build planning and execution of simultaneous technical and physical security upgrades at 26 different Department of State posts under strict security protocols. 

In 2003, PMSI was one of the first U.S. construction firms to mobilize to both Afghanistan and Iraq in support of U.S. missions for reconstruction in those war-torn countries. We continued to support the contingency operations of the U.S. military in the CENTCOM AOR, with such projects as the award-winning Overhead Coverage Systems program which provided ballistic-resistant structures built over existing facilities to protect personnel from indirect fire.
