Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command (NAVFAC) Pacific has awarded Granite Construction a contract worth approximately $126 million for the construction of buildings and infrastructure in support of the relocation of U.S. Marines to Marine Corps Base (MCB) Camp Blaz, Guam, USA. The project will be included in Granite’s 2023 first-quarter CAP and funded by NAVFAC Pacific.
According to a press release, Granite will build three buildings totaling over 110,000 square feet and site infrastructure for the the relocation of U.S. Marines to Guam. This includes a warehouse for battalion equipment storage, a climate-controlled space for electronic equipment maintenance and support of battalion vehicles, an automotive organizational shop for the upkeep and support of battalion vehicles, a reinforced concrete four-bay vehicle wash rack, and a reinforced concrete vehicle holding shed for vehicles awaiting repairs and service.
“This strategic win is a result of Granite's Federal Division's more than a decade-long work in Guam, supporting initiatives to strengthen our home market and promoting our client-centric culture,” said Granite VP of Regional Operations, Curt Haldeman. “This project diversifies our Federal portfolio, and we are extremely excited to continue our partnership with NAVFAC and strengthen our commitment to the Department of Defense's Guam buildup initiative.”
