NAVAL Facilities Engineering Command Pacific is seeking public comment on the Navy's proposed plan to build an aircraft maintenance shop and storage facility at Andersen Air Force Base.
The proposed shop is among the projects identified in the programmatic agreement for the relocation of Marines from Okinawa to Guam.
The project involves the construction of a ground support equipment maintenance shop, holding shed, aviation armament shop and aviation life support systems shop.
Deadline for public comment is June 16, according to a NavFac memo issued Thursday.
"The GSE Shop shall provide maintenance bay space for intermediate level maintenance of aircraft and provides functional space for paint and blast booths, tire repair, battery repair, parts and tool storage, and administrative space," the memo said.
NavFac said the aviation armament shop will provide a work space for inspection and maintenance of aviation weapon support equipment, including a dedicated space for ammunition stock records, production control, supply and tool storage, caged turret storage, equipment pool trailers, and administrative space.
"The facility shall be concrete-framed with reinforced concrete or precast wall and roof components, and supported on concrete foundations," the memo said. "Structural and exterior architectural systems will be constructed with features appropriate for Guam's extremely demanding environment."
