NAVFAC Far East Facilities Engineering Acquisition Division Iwakuni awarded a $6.6 million contract to repair the Northside Mess Hall at Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni, Japan, June 22.
Repairs will be made to the 18,748 square foot building’s architectural, mechanical and electrical systems. Fixtures, furniture and other dining facility equipment will also be replaced.
The facility has not received substantial repairs since it was built in 1983. In its dilapidated state, the mess hall cannot effectively receive, store, prepare or serve meals to its customers.
The contract was awarded to Nippo Corporation of Japan. Work is scheduled for completion in December 2016.
