US Awards Nearly $100Mln to Build-up Infrastructure at Hawaii Naval Base ::

The US Navy is spending almost $100 million to expand its infrastructure in Hawaii and the Pacific region, the Department of Defense said in a press release.

"The work to be performed provides for but is not limited to labor, supervision, tools, materials and equipment necessary to perform new construction, repair, alteration and related demolition of existing infrastructure based on design-build, or design-bid-build (full plans and specifications) for infrastructure within the State of Hawaii," the release stated.

The construction work will be carried out on infrastructure primarily within the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Hawaii area of responsibility (AOR) over the next five years for a combined cost of $98,000,000, the Defense Department said.

Four US-based suppliers were picked, according to the release, including D Square, Hawk-Niking, Lakewood, and Tokunaga Elite.

The new construction contracts were announced as China continues to protest what it regards as unnecessary provocative US military forward deployments in the South China Sea.
