Guam - Joint Guam Program Office deputy director Major Darren Alvarez continued to spread the word on the Navy's proposal and address any further concerns during the Guam Contractors Association membership luncheon.

He says while the buildup is different than what was initially proposed with a slower pace it's still good news for the construction industry. He explained, "The good news for construction companies here is the fact that the island itself can actually handle the construction tempo a lot more than before, so that opens up possibilities for local companies to get in the contract process and actually help with the buildup and be viable for some of those contracts that will soon be available."

While the GCA has stated its support of the buildup, he still encourages them to read through the SEIS and provide additional comments.
