SAN DIEGO (NNS) -- Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Southwest awarded Weston Solutions of West Chester, Pa., Recovery Act funded construction contracts, July 28 and 29, totaling $6.3 million for new construction and renovations of various petroleum fuel, oil and lubricant facilities and systems at Marine Corps Base (MCB) Camp Pendleton.
"I'm proud to be involved with these projects that are going to put people back to work, while fixing the ailing gas infrastructure through the base," said David Noya, NAVFAC Southwest Resident Officer In Charge of Construction (ROICC) construction manager for this project.
"Fixing the distribution lines all the way up to the building risers will make sure Marines will not have to be without heat and hot water and can live and train in a safer environment."

The construction consists of replacing all existing steel and PVC pipe and installing new polyethylene gas pipe. Work will include traffic control, pothole all existing utilities at the crossings, pavement, sidewalk and repairs to curbs and gutters.
"We support the president's stimulus initiative and look forward to working with NAVFAC to complete this project as efficiently as possible and put dollars back into the local economy," said Patrick G. McCann, Weston president and chief executive officer.
"Weston is proud of our role in improving the infrastructure that is so important to the Marines, their families and DoD civilians at Camp Pendleton."
Weston Solutions shall provide all labor, supervision, engineering, materials, equipment, tools, parts, supplies and transportation to perform all work. Antiterrorism/force protection requirements will also be provided.
"Weston will work with NAVFAC and the facilities department at MCB Camp Pendleton to complete this work safely and with as little disruption to the installation mission as possible," stated Tim Cowan, Weston Navy program manager.
"We have a long history of working to improve the quality of life for our nation's Marines, Sailors, Soldiers and Airmen, so we understand the importance of projects like this for the installation."
