Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command Pacific awarded a $36 million firm-fixed-price task order under a multiple award construction contract to Hensel Phelps Construction Co., according to NAVFAC Pacific Director of Public Affairs Krista Cummins.

The award funds the construction of a principal end item warehouse for the storage of operational military vehicles and site preparation, which includes clearing, grubbing, green waste recycling, and earthwork.

According to NAVFAC Pacific Design and Construction Program Manager Mark Naka-gawa,
“Currently there are not enough adequate operational, maintenance, or support facilities including PEI warehouse facilities for the MAGTF to conduct required operational and training tasks. This new facility will bring these capabilities to MAGTF and MCBCB to support the force flow of the Marines to Guam.”

Cummins states other associated work includes paving and site improvements with asphaltic concrete roadway and vehicle staging areas, landscaping, trash enclosure, fencing, gates, bollards, and concrete retaining walls.

According to Cummins, Work will be performed in Finegayan with an expected completion date of July 2024.
