Horsepower Geospatial wins USACE New Orleans contract

Horsepower Geospatial LLC has been selected for a five-year, US$6 million architecture and engineering contract to deliver geospatial surveying and mapping services to the New Orleans District of the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). The indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract will serve the needs of the New Orleans District and may be utilized within the Corps’ Mississippi Valley Division, South Atlantic Division, and Southwest Division. Horsepower Geospatial is a US Small Business Administration mentor-protégé joint venture of Woolpert and Resolution LLC.

Under this contract, Horsepower Geospatial will provide services that include GIS and geospatial production, digital aerial photography, airborne Lidar, photogrammetric mapping, remote sensing, large- and small-scale topographic mapping, river navigational charting and land use/land cover analysis.

Woolpert geospatial programme director Tim Summey said Horsepower Geospatial unites the strengths of Woolpert and Resolution staffs, capabilities and experience specific to the needs of the Corps. This was the first contract award and first contract submitted by Horsepower Geospatial.

"Staff members from our two companies have worked together for decades, and by formalizing our relationship, we can collaboratively build on past performance and responsiveness with the Corps, while gaining the inherent versatility of a true joint venture," Summey said. "We’re very excited to get this first contract win because it confirms that the Corps sees the same value in this union that we do, and providing what the Corps needs will always be our top priority."

Resolution COO Jeff Lower added that this extends the combined team’s work throughout the south, as well as the Mississippi Valley region. "Members of Horsepower have been involved in this contract in one way or another since 1994," Lower said. "We know the area and the needs of the Corps, and our teams have a collaborative, client-focused approach to accurate and efficient geospatial data solutions. We founded our company based on integrity, service and excellence, and this is what we will continue to deliver to the Corps."

Resolution LLC is a service-disabled veteran-owned small business and SBA-certified 8(a) firm founded in 2016, with expertise in geospatial, surveying, environmental health and safety, and project management services. Resolution has experience in supporting geospatial data collection and production for agencies including USACE, Air Force, NAVFAC and NASA.
