GWWH, a joint venture team comprised of Granite, Webcor Construction LP, Weeks Marine, Inc., and Healy Tibbitts Builders, Inc. has been awarded a $15 million design build contract by the United States Coast Guard (USCG) for the Recapitalize Airfield Pavements and Airfield Lighting Project in Elizabeth City.

Granite says in a statement that its scope of work includes pavement rehabilitation; lighting and signage, supporting various taxiways and aprons, construction of an electrical duct bank and reconstruction of the existing concrete helipad.

Construction phasing with airfield closures will be integrated into the design as the airfield will continue to operate search and recovery launch and recovery missions for the USCG as well as serving as a regional airport for private and commercial aviation.

Design is underway with construction scheduled to begin in summer 2020 and be complete in summer 2021.
