GUAM – Design Partners, Inc. of Honolulu has won a $7.5 million contract to provide architect-engineering services for military installations in the Far East, Hawaii and Guam.

The company will provide “design, engineering, specification writing, cost estimating, and related services at various locations in the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Pacific area of responsibility,” according to a Defense Department announcement. The Navy expects 55 percent of the work to be in Hawaii, 30 percent in Guam and 15 percent in the Far East at various Navy and Marine Corps installations and other government facilities.

Established in 1979, Design Partners has completed a number of projects over the years for the military in Hawaii, Guam, Okinawa and mainland Japan. Some projects in Guam include a fitness center and community facility at Andersen Air Force Base, North Tipalao Housing (Phases I and II) and replacement housing (Phase I) at Old Apra on Naval Base Guam, among others.

Under its new contract, Design Partners will work with NAVFAC Pacific on plan preparation, cost estimates, functional analysis and concept development, proposal documentation for design-build and design-bid-build projects, military construction documentation and planning for disposal of hazardous materials.

No task orders are being issued at this time. The term of contract is not to exceed 36 months, with an expected completion date of July 2014.

The Navy said it received 15 competitive proposals for the procurement, which was first announced in February under solicitation number N62742-11-D-0006.
