A groundbreaking was held last week on a $46.6 million air station operations complex at Marine Corps Base Hawaii at Kaneohe Bay.

The new complex will include an air passenger terminal, dormitory for the Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting Marines, six new fire truck bays and new office space. Construction is expected to be completed by September 2014.

“This project was awarded to the dck-ecc team last year and we recently completed the design phase of this design-build contract for NAVFAC (Naval Facilities Engineering Command) Hawaii,” said Eric Tessem, dck pacific senior vice president and general manager. “Now with construction activities ready to begin, we are confident that our project team will be successful inconstructing state-of-the-art, sustainable, and highly functional facilities for the Marines and sailors at MCBH.”

The partnership combines the talents and resources of dck pacific and Environmental Chemical Corporation, and was created specifically to complete complex, large design-build projects in Hawaii and throughout the Pacific. This award represents dck-ecc’s fourth project as a partnership. dck-ecc is currently constructing a $128 million contract for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at South Range, Schofield Barracks.
