Contract includes new facility, consolidation and renovation of existing buildings
Methuen Construction Company of Plaistow, NH, has won a $59 million contract from the U.S. Navy to build a facility at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery, Maine.
The paint, blast and rubber consolidation facility will include industrial shop areas as well as offices, break rooms, locker rooms and training and support spaces.
The low-rise facility will consist of high- and low-bay industrial shop areas, as well as offices, break rooms, locker rooms, training and support spaces.
The project also includes renovation of Buildings 55, 60 and 74, which will be converted to support industrial, maintenance and administrative functions.
The new facility will support installation of new blast and paint booths requiring ventilation systems, dust collectors and full floor grit recovery systems. New production areas will also support consolidation of rubber production and molding operations, fiberglass repairs, adequate cleaning/prep areas, and environmentally controlled storage for curing preserved products.
The high bay area and shaft refurbishment booth will be equipped with bridge cranes.
