Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command (NAVFAC) Pacific this week awarded two projects worth $134 million combined at Marine Corps Base Camp Blaz in Finagayen.
Black Construction-Tutor Perini JV today received a $98-million contract for the construction of a bachelor officer quarters at Camp Blaz.
NAVFAC yesterday awarded a $36.5 million task order to Caddell-Nan, a joint venture of Montgomery, Ala., for the design and construction of a base warehouse also at the marines camp.
Both projects support the Defense Policy Review Initiative.
The bachelor housing project is funded by Japan as part of the International Agreement between the United States and Japan.
“With the construction contract award of this Japan-funded BOQ project, NAVFAC Pacific has now contracted for all 18 of the DPRI military construction projects planned for award in fiscal 2021,” said NAVFAC Pacific Guam Program Management Office Director Will Boudra.
“This is a tremendous accomplishment and a true testament to the positive synergies developed between the Marine Corps and the NAVFAC Pacific planning, design and contracting teams. Well done to all involved!”
The work to be performed includes the construction of a multi-story housing tower, with an attached one-story common area wing, and a detached utility building. The BOQ structure will house single-occupancy housing units with living, bedroom, closet, private bath, kitchen and laundry.
Work will be performed in Guam with an expected completion date of May 2024.
The base warehouse project awarded to Caddel-Nan "provides general support warehouse required for storage and administrative space to support the distribution management office, base supply, food services, and general services administrative daily operations,” said NAVFAC Pacific Design Manager Grant Nakata.
Work will be performed in Finegayan with an expected completion date of November 2023.
“I would like to thank our team members and partners that helped with this project award,” said Nakata. “It required extensive teamwork and collaboration of professionals that are dedicated to the Defense Policy Review Initiative execution at MCBCB. I am looking forward to the construction process as it will still rely heavily on joint efforts.”
