The 28,330-square foot Operations Control Facility will provide the staff with improved functional workspaces to support subordinate Naval Construction Force units in order to meet the operational needs of Seabees deployed around the globe. The lead contractor for the $9.03 million contract is NOAH Enterprises.

Participants in the groundbreaking ceremony were Rear Admiral Mark Handley, Commander, First Naval Construction Division; Captain Charles Stuppard, Commanding Officer, Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story; Captain Mark Libonate, Commanding Officer, Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Mid-Atlantic; and Carol Curtis, President, Noah Enterprises, Inc.

The new building is scheduled for occupancy in March 2012 and will replace the current 1NCD building, which was originally built as a temporary barracks in 1943. A February 2008 audit determined that the facility must be vacated and demolished due to extensive deterioration. Leased trailers are currently used to accommodate part of the staff.
