GREAT LAKES (NNS) -- Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Midwest awarded a two-year, $11-million contract to a Pittsburgh, Pa.-based small business joint venture July 31, to build a new training and administrative headquarters for local Navy Reservists.

CPM-PJD MPA, Joint Venture, will build the new Navy Operational Support Center (NOSC) at the Armed Forces Reserve Center aboard the Pittsburgh International Airport Air Reserve Station.

The two-story, 30,000-square-foot building will house support functions for Reservists including administration, classroom training, drill hall assemblies, exercise and fitness, routine medical examinations, recruiting and storage, as well as locker and shower rooms.

The project is unique for NAVFAC, because while NAVFAC Midwest oversaw the design and contract award, NAVFAC Mid-Atlantic will execute the post-award administration and construction oversight because Pittsburgh is in the Mid-Atlantic area of responsibility.

"NAVFAC and the Navy are pleased this project will support small business and provide a new home that will better meet the needs of Navy Reservists as they train and deploy to missions around the world," said NAVFAC Midwest Assistant Operations Officer Lt. Cmdr. Jason Lockhart.

"We look forward to working with our contract partners from Construction Performance Management, LLC, and PJ Dick over the coming 18 months," said NAVFAC Mid-Atlantic Assistant Operations Officer Cmdr. La Tanya Simms.

Work is expected to be completed by February 2014.

The contract, set aside for award to an 8(a) small business, was competitively procured via the Navy Electronic Commerce Online website, with 10 proposals received.
