“To fulfill our mission here in Hawaii and provide JBPHH Department of Defense personnel at the Wahiawa Annex with facility support, we need substantial energy, hot water, and air conditioning,” said Capt.

Work will be performed in Honolulu, Hawaii, and is expected to be completed by October 2022.
