We look forward to working in Charleston and helping the community by hiring local contractors.
Sarasota, FL (PRWEB) April 29, 2010
Michael Beaumier, vice president of Suffolk Construction, today announced that the Sarasota, Fla., firm has been awarded a $9,498,000 firm-fixed-price contract to design and construct a data center at Naval Weapons Station Charleston in South Carolina.
The Naval Weapons Station is a U.S. Department of Defense training center with a Naval Nuclear Power Training Command and Nuclear Power Training Unit, as well as an engineering center with the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center. As the Army logistics hub, the station is the busiest continental U.S. surface port in the defense transportation system.
Suffolk teamed with Reynolds, Smith & Hill and X-nth on this design build project.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be working with the Navy on another project,” said Beaumier.
This is the third contract awarded to Suffolk Construction by the Navy this year.
“Our team has been keenly focused on expanding Suffolk’s presence with the Federal Government throughout the Southeast. We look forward to working in Charleston and helping the community by hiring local contractors,” Beaumier said.
Construction on the project is scheduled to begin this fall and is expected to be completed by June 2011.
