Guam - Naval Facilities Engineering Command Marianas awarded three task orders worth more than $87 million in support of the military buildup. California-based Tutor Perini Corporation was awarded a $73 million contract for the construction of an aircraft parking apron at Andersen Air Force Base.
Guam Pacific International was awarded a $9.1 million dollar task order for construction of water and wastewater utility services at the Yigo base while Oklahoma-based Overland Corporation was awarded a $5.3 million task order for construction of a new communication duct bank at AAFB.
Joint Guam Program Office Director Joseph Ludovici says the projects at Andersen provide necessary support for Marine Corps aviation operations and the awards demonstrate their commitment to partnering with small businesses.
