Tuesday July 7, 2020

NAVFAC Hawaii awarded Hensel Phelps the $54.2 million design-build P-463 SOF Undersea Operational Training Facility located at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam (JBPHH) on Oahu, Hawaii.

The project involves the design and construction of a two-story, 54,380 SF operations training center that will support a variety of functions, including operator and SEAL Delivery Vehicle (SDV) training, utilizing a 150,000-gallon combat training tank. The first floor will feature a mechanic/maintenance bay, workspace, technical and computer laboratories, a fabrication and fiberglass/ABS repair room, a diver suite with lockers and a workstation, drying cages, medical exam office and compressor room. The building’s large high bay area will house the 50-by-20-foot combat training tank with a 10-ton overhead crane to raise and lower the SDV. The second floor will include classrooms, a breakroom, offices, telecommunications and utility rooms, a SIPR cafe and a server room.

The design-build team consists of Cass | Sowatsky Architects, Coffman Engineers, Pan-Pacific Mechanical, Aquatic Design Consultants, Helix Electric and Geolabs. The project is scheduled for April 2022 completion.
