PEARL HARBOR – Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Pacific awarded a $53.7 million firm-fixed‐
price task order under a multiple award construction contract (MACC) May 7, 2014, to dck‐ecc pacific
guam LLC, a large business of Pittsburgh, Pa., for the design and construction of an aircraft maintenance
hangar on Andersen Air Force Base, Guam.
The hangar will provide for operational and maintenance facilities that support immediate and enduring
training requirements for 1st Marine Aircraft Wing (MAW) squadrons that deploy to Guam as part of the
bilateral "Aviation Training Relocation" (ATR) program.
"The construction of the first U.S. Marine Corps aviation support and maintenance hangar on Guam is a major
milestone in the Marine Corps' ability to support the President's Asia/Pacific Rebalance. The current and
future ability of USMC aviation units to train on Guam and the Marianas is critical to maintaining the
warfighting skills that the Marine Corps brings to the fight when it becomes necessary to do so,” stated Bryan
Wood, director for U.S. Marine Corps Pacific Division for Plans, Policies and Operations.
“This world‐class facility will provide outstanding support capabilities to the Marines and aircraft of the 1st
Marine Air Wing as they continue to train to the highest standards demanded by our nation,” added Wood.
The design and construction of an aircraft maintenance hangar will provide operational and maintenance
facilities to support deployed U.S. Marine Corps aviation squadrons (fixed wing and tilt‐rotor) during training
evolutions. The aircraft maintenance hangar will consist of three areas including the hangar bay, the shop and
maintenance area, and the administration and operations area.
“Since the inception of the relocation, NAVFAC Pacific has managed the design and construction of necessary
facilities and infrastructure for immediate U.S. Marine Corps and Navy training as well as permanent relocation
of Marine Corps forces to Guam,” said NAVFAC Pacific Vice Commander Capt. Pete Lynch. “This is an exciting
time for our Navy and Marine Corps team, and we look forward to additional construction projects that will
enable the Military mission in the Pacific, while enhancing opportunities in the local economy.”
Five proposals were received for this task order. Work will be performed in Yigo, Guam and is expected to be
completed by December 2016.
