JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (NNS) -- Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Southeast awarded a $22.9 million firm-fixed-price contract July 2 to Bristol General Contractors, LLC, from Anchorage, Alaska, for a Mission Training Complex at Shaw Air Force Base (AFB) in Sumter, South Carolina.
“This project supports the U.S. Army Central (USARCENT) command’s individual and collective digital training and battle staff training using constructive simulations with command, control, communications, computers and intelligence interoperability,” said Daryl LoTempio, NAVFAC Southeast project manager.
The work to be performed provides for the construction of a small standard design Mission Training Complex to include the following: security access facility, tactical operations center pads, building information systems, Energy Monitoring and Control System connection, and Intrusion Detection System installation.
“U.S. Army Central is delighted to be a part of this project as we modernize the force to be postured to fight and win our nation’s wars in the Middle East and Central Asia,” said U.S. Army Lt. Gen. Terry Ferrell, commander, USARCENT.
USARCENT is headquartered at Shaw AFB. Other tenants of the base include the 20th Figher Wing, the Air Force’s largest combat F-16 wing. Also collocated are the Ninth Air Force HQ and U.S. Air Forces Central Command headquarters, the air component of the U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM).
The work is expected to be completed by May 2022.
