JOINT BASE PEARL HARBOR-HICKAM – Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Pacific awarded a $96.61 million firm-fixed price task order under a multiple award construction contract Dec. 18 to Core Tech-AMEC-SKEC, LLC, a large business of Honolulu, Hawaii, for the construction of a hangar at Andersen Air Force Base, Guam.
“This hangar facility will enhance military readiness in the Asia-Pacific region,” said NAVFAC Pacific Vice Commander Capt. Michael D. Williamson. “On-shore investments such as these are crucial to the mission of Joint Region Marianas, and our team is looking forward to putting shovels in the ground as we work to fulfill the requirements of our joint military.”
The work to be performed provides for construction of a concrete hangar. It will be hardened to withstand 170 mile per hour typhoon winds and meet all seismic zone four earthquake criteria. The project will include all utilities, site work, heating ventilation and air conditioning, communications, fire suppression system, pavements, parking and demolition.
Work will be performed in Yigo, Guam, and is expected to be completed by March 2017.
