Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Southwest Capital Improvements - Southwestern United States
World-Class Support of NAVFAC’s Mission
In response to increasing demands on our armed forces, the President announced the Grow the Force initiative in 2007. Congress in 2008 authorized the Department of Defense (DOD) to implement a construction program to accommodate military growth and infrastructure improvements. That year, the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Southwest began the largest rebuilding program since World War II for Navy shore facilities, Marine Corps facilities, and other DOD facilities. One of the U.S. Navy’s 10 facilities engineering commands, NAVFAC Southwest handles facilities and environmental engineering in California, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Colorado, and New Mexico. The command provides services such as planning, engineering, design, construction, environmental, and acquisition and disposal of facilities and real estate. It also performs public works services such as transportation, maintenance, utilities/energy delivery, facilities management, and base operations support. Projects under NAVFAC Southwest’s capital improvements include F-35B Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) facilities in Yuma, AZ; MV-22 Osprey facilities in San Diego, CA; and the Naval Hospital at Camp Pendleton, CA.
The Marine Corps Grow the Force initiative will expand the Corps to 202,000 warriors from a baseline of 175,000, reducing stress on personnel and providing necessary forces for the global war on terrorism. To meet these increases, NAVFAC Southwest anticipated significantly increased design workload from 2008 through 2012 and construction workload from 2008 through 2014. NAVFAC Southwest hired Parsons to provide technical services in all phases of project delivery of this $7 billion military construction program. We are supporting NAVFAC Southwest in many ways, including:
- Project scope, schedule, budget, status report, and briefing assistance
- Design and submittal review
- Design-build request for proposal (RFP) development
- Overall program coordination
- Scheduling and cost estimating
- Program management
- Design management
- Quality assurance
- Facility commissioning and testing
- Facility assessments
In addition, we perform construction management and inspection services to Marine Corps and Navy installations throughout NAVFAC Southwest.
