Guam - The Navy unveiled the completion of its new Bachelor Enlisted Quarters on Naval Base Guam this morning. The more than 99,000-square foot, multi-story housing facility is valued at more than $53.7 million, and was awarded to Hensel Phelps Construction in April 2009.

The energy efficient-designed barracks provides living space for up to 420 sailors, and includes multiple common areas. Captain Richard Wood is the commander for the Naval Base, and says this building will house the sailors aboard the USS Frank Cable. "By moving those cable sailors here will allow us to provide a better quality of life for all our bachelor sailors throughout our entire barracks by reducing overcrowding and providing them quality facilities," he told KUAM News.

The facility is also the first LEED Gold building on the naval base built under U.S. Green Building Council requirements.
