    Naval Construction Group ONE

    Feb 15th marks a monumental milestone for the United States Navy's Seabees - the 50th anniversary of their Underwater Construction Teams (UCTs). Since their inception, these elite teams have played a crucial role in supporting naval and marine operations through underwater construction, inspection, repair, and demolition work across the globe.

    The UCTs, part of the renowned Naval Construction Force known as the Seabees, were established to undertake complex construction projects in austere environments that are inaccessible to conventional construction methods. Their work includes the installation and maintenance of underwater cables, harbor defenses, and pier damage repair, among other critical tasks. These highly skilled divers and construction professionals have ensured the operational readiness of the Navy's fleet and infrastructure, demonstrating unparalleled dedication and expertise.

    As we look to the future, the UCTs continue to evolve, incorporating advanced technologies and techniques to meet the changing needs of underwater construction and repair. Their ongoing commitment to excellence ensures that the Seabee legacy of innovation and resilience will continue to thrive.

    Naval Construction Group One (NCG-1) operates from Port Hueneme, California, and serves as the immediate superior in command (ISIC) for its assigned forces. NCG1 leads and manages the overall capability and readiness of Naval Construction Regiments (NCRs), Naval Mobile Construction Battalions (NMCBs), Construction Battalion Maintenance Units (CBMUs), and Underwater Construction Teams (UCTs). NCG1 is responsible for manning, training, equipping, and deploying combat-ready Naval Construction Force (NCF) units in support of combatant commanders (CCDRs) and Navy component commanders (NCCs). NCG1 provides program management and oversight in support of subordinate units and supports the Navy Expeditionary Combat Enterprise Force Development efforts. NCG1 provides the required engineering support that the Navy and nation need to construct and maintain base facilities, repair battle-damaged facilities, conduct defensive operations as required, and meet disaster preparedness and recovery missions.
