JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (NNS) -- Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Southeast awarded a $10.8 million multiple award construction contract (MACC) Sept. 25 to Burns, Roe & Dick, A Joint Venture of Pittsburgh, Pa., for repairs to Naval Hospital Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

"We're ready for the restoration and rehabilitation to begin. Staff members continue to work very hard providing patient care services since a flood on the hospital's second floor in January 2009, which damaged multiple wings and facility systems," said Capt. David Wright, commanding officer, Naval Hospital Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. "While the full restoration will take some time, we look forward to the completion of the project when we can fully utilize the entire hospital again."

The work to be performed provides for the design and construction of repairs to flood-damaged portions of the hospital facility interior and additional construction and renovation in other portions of the hospital.

Damage was caused by the rupture of a 6-foot portion of a 4-inch diameter fire main Jan. 25. The rupture released an estimated 40,000 gallons of potable water on the second floor of a patient-care wing, resulting in the first and second floors to be closed to patient care.

Work for this task order is expected to be completed by September 2012.

This is the third task order on this MACC that was originally awarded July 17, 2008.
