More than a dozen construction companies won spots on a multiple-award Army construction contract, worth $499 million.

Local winners were Coakley and Williams Construction of Gaithersburg, Md., and Balfour Beatty Construction of Fairfax, Va.

The indefinite-delivery, indefinite quantity contracts call for fixed-price task orders. The awards were made by the Army Corps of Engineers' Mobile, Ala. operation.

Meanwhile, the Navy is also in construction mode. It awarded an $11 million contract to restore and modernize Building 111 at the Washington Navy Yard in Southeast Washington, D.C. That contract went to Whiting Turner Construction of Baltimore.
