WASHINGTON (NNS) -- Naval Facilities Engineering Command Washington awarded a $11.7 million contract award Sept. 4 to build a dining facility at Marine Corps Base Quantico, Va.
The project will support the Weapons Training Battalion and Marine Corps Embassy Security Group.
"This facility will provide an adequate and efficiently configured dining facility to support Weapons Training Battalion and Marine Corps Embassy Security Group personnel, improving their quality of life at MCB Quantico," said Cdr. James Cho, assistant operations officer at NAVFAC Washington.
Work will include building a low rise facility with dining area, administrative, kitchen and storage space. It will provide Anti-Terrorism/Force Protection features to comply with Department of Defense ATFP Standards for Buildings. A ground-mounted photovoltaic solar array will highlight sustainable design principles. The project will comply with the Energy Policy Act of 2005 and the Energy Independence Act of 2007.
Work will be completed in Quantico, Va., and is scheduled for completion by April 2015.
C.E.R., Inc., based in Baltimore, Md., was awarded the $11,699,000 firm-fixed price task order under a previously awarded multiple award construction contract. It was selected among five proposals received.
