A joint venture (JV) of Granite Construction and Obayashi Corporation has bagged a $165m contract for the Finegayan Utilities and Site Improvements Phase I project in Finegayan, Guam.
Granite’s share is around 55% in the contract, which was awarded by the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Pacific.
Located on the Naval Computer and Telecommunications Station, the Marine Corps Base Guam will house about a third of the 5,000 US Marines who will be relocated from Okinawa and stationed on Guam in the coming years.
The scope of the project will include the preparation of a 400-acre site for future construction of operational, administrative and bachelor housing structures for the new Marine Corps base.
Under the contract, the JV will carry out the demolition of existing structures, utility relocation, new utilities, roads and other infrastructure such as fencing, sidewalks, signage and striping as well as clearing the site of unexploded ordnance and munitions of explosive concern.
The work will be carried out using green waste and storm water management, mitigation of historic properties, and conservation measures for threatened and endangered species.
The project is expected to be completed by 2020.
