Up to $11.4M to Stronghold to Rebuild NAS Lemoore Barracks
Stronghold Engineering in Riverside, CA won a $10 million firm-fixed-price task order (#0006) under a multiple-award construction contract (N62473-06-D-1057) for modernization of barracks – Buildings 14 and 15 – at Naval Air Station Lemoore in California.
Stronghold Engineering will repair the existing barracks, converting 130 rooms from 2+0 to 1+1E bachelor housing standard. The 1+1E module will feature two private sleeping rooms with closet, a shared bathroom, kitchenette, an area for stackable washer and dryer, and telephone, internet, and cable TV capability in each private room. Stronghold will replace the associated furniture, fixtures, and equipment necessary for a complete usable facility.
The task order also contains one planned modification, which, if issued, would increase cumulative task order value to $11.4 million. Work will be performed in Lemoore, CA and is expected to be completed by January 2011. For this task order, 4 proposals were received by the Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southwest in San Diego, CA.
