More than 800 facilities at Camp Lejeune, New River and Cherry Point sustained damage during Hurricane Florence, requiring a $1.2 billion repair and a $1.7 billion replacement program.  NAVFAC is acquiring the repair work in FY (Fiscal Year) 2019 and first quarter FY2020, which began on Oct. 1, 2019.

NAVFAC has initiated acquisition of the $1.7 billion MILCON work, which includes 31 design build projects in seven contract packages, which NAVFAC will award in fiscal year 2020 (which ends Sept. 30, 2020).  NAVFAC will award each package to a single prime contractor.

Packages include:

  • Package 1: Five projects at MCAS Cherry Point, including seven buildings – one headquarters, one security building, one maintenance facility, two fire stations, one academic facility and one range operations facility, estimated at $175-$225 million.
  • Package 2: Seven projects, including 14 headquarters facilities buildings at Camp Lejeune. Total estimate for Package 2 is $175-$225 million.
  • Package 3: Three projects, including five buildings – one renovation and three new training facilities and one new warehouse Camp Lejeune. Package estimate is $275-$325 million
  • Package 4: Two bridge projects at Camp Lejeune, including a movable bridge over the Intracoastal Waterway and a railway trestle over the White Oak River. Package estimate is $125-$175 million.
  • Package 5: Seven support and applied instruction projects at Camp Lejeune, including nine buildings – two first stations, three headquarters, one mess hall with parking garage and two academic facilities, estimated at $275-$325 million.
  • Package 6: Three projects at Camp Lejeune’s Stone Bay area, including two headquarters and one academic facility, estimated at $50-$100 million.
  • Package 7: Four projects at MCAS New River including a barracks, academic building, a CH-53K and a C-12 hanger, each with associated facilities.Total estimated budget is $425-$475 million.

NAVFAC will use a “two-phase” selection process for each package.  Phase one responses for Packages 1, 2 and 4 were due Nov. 8, with announcement of “down-select” to three contractors expected in December or January.  Packages 3 and 7 are in “pre-solicitation,” with packages 5 and 6 expected soon – with responses due in December and “down-select” announcements in January.

The NCMBC will partner with Carolinas AGC to inform members about the status of these solicitations through direct email and, and to host consolidated “teaming forums” for the three contractors selected to proceed to Phase 2 for each package.

“CAGC and the NCMBC encourage all general and specialty contractors, designers and suppliers to monitor these opportunities, to engage in teaming events and to actively partner with contractors the Navy selects to execute this $1.7 billion in work at North Carolina bases,” the statement says.
