SAN DIEGO (NNS) -- Seabees from Construction Battalion Maintenance Unit 303 Bravo Company completed a security gate for Naval Base San Diego, Dec. 12.

The gate is expected to be operational in early 2013. The project consists of a guardhouse for use by Naval Base Auxiliary Security Force personnel. The design is the new standard for Navy Region Southwest.

'Having a guard house with all these high tech security systems makes you feel safe when standing gate guard. Plus, having a restroom right here at the gate will make life a lot easier for all personnel' said Utilitiesman 2nd Class (SCW) Tyson Curtis, a member of CBMU 303 and its Auxiliary Security Force.

CBMU 303 Bravo Company uses construction projects in the region to focus on enhancing Seabee rating skills. 'On the job training is paramount; passing the skills of a journeyman to an apprentice is an important part of what we do,' said Builder 1st Class (SCW) Jordan Parker. This particular project encompasses a wide array of skills from electrical to finish-work.
