The US Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Hawaii has awarded a $20.5m firm-fixed-price task order to California-based Insight Pacific, to renovate Air Mobility Command’s (AMC) passenger terminal in Hawaii.

As part of the contract, which comes under a multiple award construction contract, Insight Pacific will be responsible for repairing the existing two-story AMC passenger terminal at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam (JBPHH).

In addition, the company will renovate in-bound and out-bound passenger processing to comply with current codes, requirements and accessibility standards.

NAVFAC Hawaii commanding officer captain Dean Tufts said: "This project not only increases the efficiency of a facility which serves 100,000 passengers a year; but will also improve the quality of life of everyone there.

"The terminal is vital to Air Mobility Command’s missions, which include worldwide cargo and passenger delivery, air refuelling and aeromedical evacuation."

"NAVFAC Hawaii is honoured to support AMC’s capabilities in the Pacific."

For this task order, NAVFAC received proposals from four companies. The project is scheduled for completion in March 2018.

Tufts added: "NAVFAC Hawaii is honoured to support AMC’s capabilities in the Pacific."

Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam combines two bases, the US Air Force Hickam Field and the US Navy Naval Station Pearl Harbor, into a single joint installation to support both the US Air Force and navy missions.

It enables maximum mission readiness of the tenant commands and activities by delivering the highest quality installation services, facilities support and quality of life programmes.
