Newport, R.I. -- The U.S. Naval War College renovation contract for upgrades at Sims Hall on Naval Station Newport was recently awarded by Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Mid-Atlantic. The July 31 award of a $12 million firm-fixed price contract went to J&J Contractors Inc. of North Billerica, Massachusetts. The project will renovate the Sims Hall center wing.
"This project will result in a substantive improvement in our ability to execute a range of classified research and war gaming activities in Sims Hall, which has historically served as the center for those events," said Rear Adm. Shoshana Chatfield, president, NWC. "Ultimately this investment in Naval War College's infrastructure will significantly improve our capability for the college to meet the current and future demands from the Navy and the other services in the Department of Defense for classified war gaming expertise."
Work on this contract will be performed at Naval Station Newport in Newport, Rhode Island, with an expected completion date of January 2021.
The contract was competitively procured via the Navy Electronic Commerce Online and Federal Business Opportunities website with two proposals received.
