Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Marianas has awarded a $12.8 million task order to Tikigaq Construction LLC, a 'Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUB Zone)-certified small business,' to construct a storage facility on Andersen Air Force Base Guam.
"This project is pivotal to the Pacific Airpower Resiliency Initiative on Andersen," said Engineering Flight Chief Lieutenant Commander Michael Warren. "When completed, it will store dispersed maintenance spares and specialized equipment to support the 36th Wing and further enable the Air Force objective to hone its resiliency strategy."
Last month Tikigag won a $7.2 million contract to construct landfill closure capping systems at Andersen. The newly awarded storage facility includes a vehicle storage area, mechanical equipment areas, a fuel support/spare parts for manifold storage area, a communications room and an office area. Also included in this contract are site improvements such as grading, drainage, access roads, water and sewer utilities, a fire protection system, interior plumbing, interior electrical and communication facilities, and site electrical amenities. "This task order award is a testament to NAVFAC Marianas' continued focus on providing maximum practicable opportunities for small business participation in our contracting activities," said NAVFAC Marianas Assistant Deputy for Small Business Albert Sampson. "Certainly a successful award would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of our team of acquisition professionals, technical personnel, and our qualified small business partners." The construction work is expected to be completed by May 2019. Four proposals were received for this task order.
