JOINT BASE PEARL HARBOR-HICKAM, Hawaii (NNS) -- Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Hawaii awarded Kiewit Infrastructure West Co., Honolulu, Hawaii, a $64,993,500 million firm-fixed-price contract today for P-704, Sewer Lift Station and Relief Sewer Lines, Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii.
"This military construction contract award is very important to the sustained operations of the wastewater system on Joint Base," said Navy Region Hawaii Regional Engineer and NAVFAC Hawaii Commanding Officer Marc Delao. "It will replace deteriorated infrastructure, improve sewage flow to our wastewater plant as well as reduce the risk of sewage spills that may potentially impact the environment. NAVFAC Hawaii is pleased this project has been awarded and looks forward to additional investments in our highly critical utilities infrastructure in the near future."
The work to be performed provides for two major components. The first component is a new wastewater pump station to replace existing pump station SY-001. The second component is a new 42-inch diameter gravity sewer main along South Avenue that replaces an existing 30-inch gravity trunk sewer. A new pump station and gravity sewer line are required to accommodate the anticipated increase in wastewater flows from proposed shore activities within the existing pump station SY-001 collection area and to accommodate peak wet-weather flows with the required level of redundancy.
Work is expected to be completed by June 2021. The contract was competitively procured the Navy Electronic Commerce Online website with five proposals received.
