Description: When Hurricane Ike made landfall near Galveston, Texas, in September 2008, the 145-mile-an-hour winds and 20-foot storm surge resulted in loss of more than 100 lives and the devastation of the four FWS National Wildlife Refuges in the area. The FWS took the opportunity to create a single maintenance and fire protection hub with living quarters to serve all the needs of all refuges and issued a Multiple Award Task Order Contract (MATOC) vehicle to build the complex.

The two-year design-build project resulted in this premier facility for FWS. Tuggle recognized the design as the prototype that will be used for future FWS projects. In addition, the MATOC contract was so successful in producing a project that exceeded expectations that the FWS is considering issuing another MATOC.
