JOINT BASE PEARL HARBOR-HICKAM—Naval Facilities Engineering Command Pacific awarded Friday a $178 million firm-fixed price contract to Black Construction Corp. of Barrigada, Guam, for the replacement of Andersen Housing Phases I, II and III at Naval Support Activity Andersen in Guam.
The work to be performed includes the construction of duplex buildings of reinforced concrete and/or pre-cast reinforced concrete typhoon shelter/housing structures. The new duplex buildings replace an equivalent number of existing duplexes. The new housing units are to be designed vent-less and using hot humid design principles that apply to the Guam environment. These housing unit structures are to be built with reinforced concrete foundations, concrete floors, concrete walls, and concrete sloped roofs designed to withstand Guam’s frequent typhoons.
Work will be performed in Yigo, Guam with an expected completion date of June 2022. The contract was competitively procured via the Navy Electronic Commerce Online website with five proposals received. (USN)
