    NORFOLK, VA – Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command Mid-Atlantic (NAVFAC MIDLANT) awarded The Nutmeg Companies Inc., Norwich, Connecticut, a $22,623,810, firm-fixed-price contract for renovations of Building 79 at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard (PNSY), Kittery, Maine. The contract also contains two unexercised options, which if exercised, would increase the total cumulative contract value to $27,104,580.

    The work is part of the Shipyard Infrastructure Optimization Program (SIOP), and is a continuation of the Navy’s commitment to investing in the nation's critical naval facilities.

    SIOP is a holistic plan that integrates all infrastructure and industrial plant equipment investments at the Navy’s four public shipyards to meet nuclear fleet maintenance requirements, as well as improve Navy maintenance capabilities by expanding shipyard capacity and optimizing shipyard configuration.

    SIOP projects are essential to the on-time completion of submarine availabilities at PNSY, and critical to maintaining the Navy’s maritime superiority.

    “The restoration and modernization of our shipyard’s nuclear engineering and planning spaces substantially improves the quality of service for our most important asset, our people,” said Russ Gagner, PNSY SIOP Program Manager. “As a primary tenet of SIOP, this project will deliver improvements to our spaces – meeting all current codes – and provides savings through reduced sustainment costs to maintain the facility, and utility cost reduction.”

    Work will be performed in Kittery, Maine, and is expected to be completed by September 2025.

    “This project – and many others – is essential to our national defense. It also demonstrates our collaboration with Naval Sea Systems Command and Commander, Navy Installations Command to help modernize our shipyards,” said Capt. Matt Riethmiller, Commanding Officer of NAVFAC MIDLANT. “These direct and significant contributions will support warfighter readiness for many years to come.”

    Fiscal year 2023 operation and maintenance (Navy) funds in the amount of $22,623,810 will be obligated at time of award, and will expire at the end of the current fiscal year.

    This contract was competitively procured via the website, with one proposal received.

    NAVFAC MIDLANT is the contracting activity (N4008523C0049).
