    Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command (NAVFAC) Southeast awarded four new contracts, totaling $104.8 million, for Hurricane Sally recovery efforts onboard Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola.

    On Sept. 14, a contract in the amount of $38.8 million, a firm-fixed-price task order, was awarded to Sauer Construction LLC, from Jacksonville, Florida, under a multiple award construction contract to provide demolition, construction, and repair work associated with storm damage.

    “The repairs are vital to the installation to allow proper drainage of sewer and rainfall from the base,” said Ensign Alexander Pangelinan, construction manager for Resident Officer in Charge of Construction (ROICC) Sally. “In addition, many of the base’s substations and pipes are reaching the end of their effective lifespan. Replacement of these components will save on further maintenance cost of aging systems.”

    The work to be performed provides replacing 13 damaged substations, repairing or replacing existing power poles supporting the overhead power distribution system, replacing manholes, replacing hand holes, replacing underground circuits, abandoning and replacing an existing 5kV direct-buried cable, replacing portions of overhead power with underground circuits, and providing a new reinforced concrete duct back between two substations.

    Within the Hurricane Sally destruction area, 15 specific storm-water infrastructure areas were identified as needing repair or replacement. Work consists of removal and replacement of a damaged gangway, removing and replacing a damaged fabric canopy over the entrance gate, repairing damaged sidewalks and lighting along the seawall, backfilling and grading scour areas, repairing one boardwalk, repairing a Golf Cart Bridge, and minor repairs to the Main Gate Bridge.

    Building envelope repairs consist of repairing and replacing roof systems, replacing damaged windows, replacing vinyl siding, mold remediation, replacing ceiling systems, and patching and repairing interior finishes to a limited number of facilities.

    Work will be performed in Pensacola, Florida and is expected to be completed by March 2025.

    On Sept. 21, a contract for $14.8 million, also a firm-fixed-price task order, was awarded to VHB, LLC, from Boyds, Maryland, under a multiple award construction contract to provide repairs to the sanitary sewer system in the southeast sector and the replacement of a water reservoir tank.

    “The water treatment plant is the main plant serving both Corry Station and NAS Pensacola,” said Pangelinan.

    The work to be performed provides for replacing, repairing, cleaning, and abandoning manholes; cleaning, replacing and repairing lining, or plugging cleanouts, laterals, and mains; installing and replacing manhole inserts.

    The work also provides the replacement of the existing 500,000-gallon reinforced concrete water reservoir and 150,000-gallon metal water tank water treatment plant at Corry Station.

    Pangelinan stated, “The contractor will be providing the design and construction to replace the existing concrete water reservoir and metal water tank water treatment plant, which will provide the base a continued source of clean water.”

    Work will be performed in Pensacola, Florida and is expected to be completed by June 2024.

    Two contracts were awarded on Sept. 23. The first was a $25 million firm-fixed-price modification to Sauer Construction, LLC, from Jacksonville, Florida, under a previously awarded task order placed against a multiple award construction contract, which provides for demolition, construction, and repair work associated with storm damage.

    The work to be performed provides repairs to the overhead power distribution system, relocates the portion of the power distribution system underground in a concrete duct bank, installs sectionalizing cabinets, replaces damaged and vulnerable electrical equipment including transformers, breakers, wire, cable terminations and smart meter, and demolishes existing circuits including cable, poles, and cross arms.

    Work will be performed in Pensacola, Florida and is expected to be completed by March 2025.

    Also on Sept. 23 was a $26.2 million firm-fixed-price task order to The Korte Company from St. Louis, Missouri, under a multiple award construction contract to provide storm damage repairs to six facilities onboard Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola, Florida.

    The contract includes storm damage repairs to two student barracks, two buildings associated with the installation’s Family Services Center, and two maintenance hangars.

    The work provides for architectural column repair and replacement, window repair and replacement, roof repair and replacement, attic insulation replacement, asbestos, lead paint and mold abatement, interior finish repairs including walls and ceiling grid, fire alarm repairs, HVAC repairs and replacement, structural steel repair and replacement, structural steel coating and concrete repair.

    Work will be performed in Pensacola, Florida and is expected to be completed by May 2024.

    Hurricane Sally made landfall as a Category 2 storm back on Sept. 16, 2020, bringing 92 mph wind gusts to Pensacola and damaging over 350 facilities on the installation. NAVFAC Southeast established ROICC Sally to focus solely on hurricane recovery projects over the next few years.
