PITI, Guam—Tikigaq Construction LLC, a small business in Guam that’s been certified as historically underutilized, has been awarded a $12.8 million task order by the Naval Facilities Engineering Command Marianas last Aug. 31 to build a storage facility on Andersen Air Force Base in Guam.
“This project is pivotal to the Pacific Airpower Resiliency Initiative on AAFB,” said Engineering Flight Chief Lt. Cmdr. 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.”
The 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 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.”
Tikigaq Construction LLC typically falls under what is usually referred to as a Historically Underutilized Business Zone or HUBZone.
The task order was awarded under a design-build multiple award construction contract. Work will be performed in Yigo, Guam and is expected to be completed by May 2019. Four proposals were received for this task order.
