Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam (NNS) -- Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Pacific awarded a $64 million firm-fixed price contract, May 16, to Hensel Phelps Construction Co. of Honolulu, Hawaii for the design and construction of an aircraft maintenance hangar with supporting facilities at Joint Region Marianas, Andersen Air Force Base, Guam.
"This contract award not only enables Joint Region Marianas (JRM) to deliver the necessary facilities to the Marine Corps on Guam, but it also facilitates our continued support to the ever increasing military mission and defense posture in the region," said JRM Regional Engineer and NAVFAC Marianas Commanding Officer Capt. Stephanie Jones. "NAVFAC Marianas is pleased to have a significant role in the design and construction of this vital facility, and we are eager to team with our industry partners to see the project through to completion."
The work to be performed provides for the design and construction of an aircraft maintenance hangar with high bay spaces, crew, equipment and administrative spaces.
The building electrical systems include power, emergency power, lighting, telecommunications, grounding, lightning protection and electronic security systems. The building mechanical systems include fire suppression system, plumbing, heating and air conditioning and compressed air. The hangar structure will have a conventional shallow foundation with concrete walls and structural steel columns supporting a concrete roof on structural steel beams/trusses.
The facility will be constructed with features to meet Guam's severe wind, seismic, and corrosive environmental conditions.
Work is expected to be completed by October 2020. The contract was competitively procured via the Federal Business Opportunities website with three proposals received.
