SFO Jet Fuel Storage Facility – Best Value

Mission Critical worked with Anvil Builders, Inc. (Anvil) to pursue this Best Value procurement for the San Francisco International Airport (SFO) Jet Fuel Storage Facility Project under Construction Manager Burns & McDonnell. This aviation project pursuit was a single-stage procurement that included Technical and Fee Proposals. Winning this $43M contract represents a significant move into the prime contracting market for Anvil Builders, and this project’s scope includes the complex underground infrastructure that they specialize in as a firm.

The San Francisco International Airport is an important gateway to Europe and Asia. It is the second busiest airport in California and the seventh busiest in the United States. SFO receives its Jet A fuel from a Kinder Morgan pipeline stored in on-site fuel tanks which have a storage capacity of approximately 14.5 million gallons and a usable storage capacity of approximately 10.2 million gallons. At SFO’s request, Burns & McDonnell is procuring this project to construct two new 90,000-barrel gross capacity (66,000-barrel usable capacity) tanks to accommodate increased demand at this busy international airport. The project scope will also include improvements to the existing containment drainage system for the two new tanks and improve overall operability. New cable trays will provide power and controls to both the new and existing tanks and will facilitate the planned electrical and controls upgrades for the facility.

Mission Critical’s Impact

The final Technical Proposal successfully communicated Anvil’s abilities, experience, and capacity and ultimately won them the job. In addition to a winning submission, Mission Critical also took this opportunity to develop new sets of unique data and metrics for Anvil which uniquely define their experience at SFO and within the San Francisco market.
