PEARL HARBOR (NNS) -- Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Pacific awarded a $25.69 million firm-fixed-price task order under a multiple award construction contract April 10 to Guam MACC Builders A JV, a large business of Honolulu, Hawaii, for the design and construction of an emergent repair facility at Naval Base Guam.
"An improved emergent repair facility equips Naval Base Guam with a more robust submarine repair capability and provides first class support to homeported and forward deployed vessels," said Naval Base Guam Commanding Officer Capt. Mike Ward. "The awarding of this contract makes significant steps to further support the fleet now and, more importantly, into the future."
The work to be performed includes the design and construction of a low rise, two-story, building that will be attached to the existing emergent repair facility. The project will expand the existing two-story reinforced concrete structure with pile foundation, reinforced concrete walls and roof structure, and beam column frame.
In addition, built-in equipment will include a passenger/freight elevator, an overhead crane and an emergency diesel generator and a radon mitigation system.
The contract also contains one unexercised option, which if exercised would increase cumulative task order value to $28 million. Work will be performed in Santa Rita, Guam, and is expected to be completed by May 2016.
