Guam - Guam military buildup chair senator Judi Guthertz says she is delighted the first award of $90 million for buildup construction was made, despite the award going to a Colorado firm for utility and site improvements. NAVFAC awarded the contract to Granite JV of Colorado for phase one of site improvement work at Andersen Air Force Base and Naval Base Guam. Guthertz says she is optimistic a number of Guam companies will be subcontracted to help with these projects. She states, "At last, we're starting to pin down some tangible benefits to the buildup. These Japanese funds were already in the bank, we are told, but demonstrate good faith of Japan's support of the eventual plan, which will benefit everyone living in Guam. Now we need a buildup master plan and assurance of funding from Washington and we must make sure that Guam does its part."
