PEARL HARBOR (NNS) -- Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Hawaii
awarded a $19.6 million firm-fixed-price task order under a multiple award construction contract Jan. 25 to Bethel-Webcor JV-1, a small business in Anchorage, Alaska.
The project will construct a Waterfront Support Facility for Naval Special Warfare Group 3 (NSWG-3) at Pearl City Peninsula, Oahu, Hawaii.
The new facility is to support Navy divers and technicians by providing work space for operations, training, planning and mission support in addition to equipment storage and load out areas.
"We are very pleased that this contract has been awarded and construction will be moving forward," said Command Master Chief David Salisbury, NSWG-3. "Space has been at a premium for many years and the new structure and renovation will afford us some much needed room to work."
Facility space will also be provided in support of NSWG-3 Holistic Human Performance Center.
This project will include renovations to Building 987 and construction of a second floor space in the building's high bay area.
"The additional space being created by NAVFAC Hawaii in this combined effort will greatly enhance our capability to support training," said Salisbury. "With our ever increasing workload and limited land here on Oahu, this project is a welcomed addition to our community."
Work is expected to be completed by February 2018.
