Naval Facilities Engineering Command Washington was established 23 July 2004 by consolidating the assets of EFA Chesapeake and PWC Washington.
The NAVFAC Washington workforce consists of more than 1,600 civilian and military personnel who provide a full range of facilities en- gineering products and services, with expertise in acquisition, public works, capital improvements, environmental, real estate, planning and asset management. NAVFAC Washington serves its many Supported Commands through Public Works Departments at Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling, Naval Support Activity Annapolis, Bethesda, South Potomac and Washington; and Resident Officer-In-Charge-of-Construction at Marine Corps Base Quantico and Joint Base Andrews.
The command’s diverse clientele includes 23 Navy Commands and 18 Department of Defense agencies, as well as the U.S. Marine Corps and the U.S. Air Force. Several unique functions are also resident in the command: the Special Programs Office of The White House Military Office, Naval Support Facility Thurmont facilities management and residential support for the Vice President of the United States. Between Fiscal Years 2007 and 2011, NAVFAC Washington’s workload surged due to Base Realignment and Closure, U.S. Marine Corps Grow the Force and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Fiscal Years 2012 and 2013 saw progress in the reduction of energy consumption ashore, most notibly through the Smart Shore Pilot Program and other sustainable energy projects.
The NAVFAC Washington Commanding Officer (CO) serves a dual role, reporting to NAVFAC Atlantic as CO and to Commandant, Naval District Washington as the Regional Engineer.
