Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command (NAVFAC) Pacific awarded a $56 million firm-fixed price task order Nov. 30 to Black Construction-Tutor Perini JV of Barrigada, Guam for the construction of an enlisted dining facility at Marine Corps Base Camp Blaz (MCBCB).
The contract supports the Defense Policy Review Initiative and is funded by the government of Japan (GOJ) as part of the International Agreement between the United States and Japan.
“We are excited with the construction award of the enlisted dining facility at the new MCBCB on Guam, as it is critical to the operations of the new base,” said Will Boudra, NAVFAC Pacific Guam Program Management Office director. “This project is funded by the GOJ and is another recognition of their significant partnership and cash contribution made toward building the new Marine Corps base.”
The 40,000 square foot enlisted dining facility will serve 1,020 customers per hour. The project also provides a 3,000 square foot cold storage warehouse, a 2,000 square foot general-purpose warehouse and over 7,000 square yard of paved parking and loading areas.
The enlisted dining facility will include an entrance lobby, queue, serving area, cashier station, dining area, restrooms, washing, kitchen and preparation areas, support areas (admin, lockers, janitorial), mechanical and communication services, and incidental related work.
“It’s been a pleasure to see the design and development by our NAVFAC and private sector architect-engineering teams,” said Tiffany Iiga-Saole, NAVFAC Pacific Design and Construction project manager. “We look forward to continuing these efforts with the GOJ, as we move forward with the construction phase.”
Work will be performed in Guam with an expected completion date of December 2023.
