PEARL HARBOR-HICKAM, Hawaii (NNS) -- Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Hawaii awarded a $11.3 million contract Oct. 23 to RORE-ITSI, JV LLC (small business), San Diego, Calif., for a firm-fixed task order to construct a Child Development Center (CDC) at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam.
"The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is partnering with the Navy to produce a first class facility that will not only be constructed with the contracting and engineering assistance of NAVFAC, but, when construction is complete, it will be managed by a Navy team as well," said NOAA's Chief Administrative Officer Edward Horton.
The new CDC will accommodate 122-children and be located on the northwest corner of Peltier Avenue and Nimitz Road, Honolulu, Hawaii. The facility is designed to meet the criteria established by the DoD Unified Facilities Criteria. The project includes a reception area, staff/break room, storage, rest rooms, kitchen, laundry, and janitorial space as well as two outdoor activity areas for the four age groups.
In addition, the facility will have photovoltaics and other energy saving features since it is to be designed to LEED Silver standards.
Work will be performed on Oahu, Hawaii, and is expected to be completed by May 2015.
Three proposals were received for this task order under a multiple award construction contract.
