Guam - Tutor Perini Corporation based out of California was awarded a $73 million task order for a new aircraft-parking apron at Andersen Air Force Base. Business Wire reports the construction company will be working with its subsidiary Black Construction Corporation on the firm-fixed-price task order by the Naval Facilities engineering command Marianas.
The construction includes an MV-22 aircraft concrete parking apron, hot mix asphalt apron replacement pavement, aircraft rinse facility, aircraft wash-rack facility, three direct fueling stations and a tow-way with a retaining wall.
Company CEO and chairman Ronald Tutor says, "The diversity of the work that will be performed under these contracts illustrate Tutor Perini's ability to deliver projects across a wide range of sectors and geographies."
The project on AAFB is expected to be complete by July 2013.
