SAN DIEGO (NNS) -- Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Southwest awarded A&D GC Inc. of Santee Calif., an $11.39 million firm-fixed-price task order under a previously awarded multiple award construction contract Sept. 30 for construction of an E-2D Aircrew Training Facility at Naval Base Ventura County.

A&D GC Inc. will construct an operational training facility with a high bay area for the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye aircraft.

"This training facility is the cornerstone for the Point Mugu E-2D training systems," said Capt. Drew Basden, Airborne Command & Control Logistics Wing (ACCLOGWING) deputy commodore. "The capability that the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye brings to the Navy combat team is unparalleled today, and the training systems that will reside in this facility will be used to train the war fighters who employ the E-2D in combat actions around the world."

The facility will house an operational flight trainer simulator, weapon systems trainer and combat information center simulator. The project includes sensitive compartmentalized information facility debrief spaces, classrooms, auditorium, administrative spaces and required support spaces. This project also includes pile foundation, sewer lift station, fire pump room, raised flooring system, exterior doors adequate to allow installation and maintenance of high bay trainer, secret Internet protocol routing network, non-secure Internet routing network, uninterrupted power supply, electronic security system and controlled access system.

"Proper training of the complex tactics, techniques, and procedures in this weapons system trainer and flight trainer enables the crew of the Advanced Hawkeye to lead U.S. power projection across the globe, protecting and guiding U.S. and allied forces," said Basden.

NAVFAC Southwest is the contracting activity. Five proposals were received for this task order. Fiscal year 2012 military construction (MILCON) funds in the amount of $11.39 million are obligated to this award and will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year.

"We had a lot of interest in this project from our contractors and bids were very competitive," said Thomas Blount, NAVFAC Southwest project manager for this project.

Work will be performed in Point Mugu, Calif., and is scheduled for completion by June 2014.
