New Facility Planned for Portsmouth Naval Shipyard
October 13, 2010

According to information made available from Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC), plans are underway for a new waterfront support facility at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard after Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Mid-Atlantic awarded a $16.9 million firm-fixed price task order Sept. 29th to Consigli Construction Co., Inc. of Milford, Maine.

Work on this project will take place in Kittery, Maine and is expected to begin mid-November this year. Expected completion date is September 2012.

The task order comes under a previously awarded multiple award construction contract and provides for the construction of a two-story steel framed addition to the east side of the existing high bay of Building 174.

The project is designed according to the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Silver certification standards.

Many upgrades have been made in preparation for the arrival of Virginia class submarines at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, the first of which was the USS Virginia (SSN 774) when it docked at the shipyard in early September. Additions and renovations will enhance productivity and efficiency at the shipyard while providing an improved working environment for its personnel.
