Tutor Perini Nabs $74 Million Contract

Sylmar-based construction contractor Tutor Perini Corp. and one of its subsidiaries have been awarded a $74 million contract to build a child development center at Anderson Air Force Base in the United States Pacific territory of Guam.

The contract was awarded by the U.S. Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command, Pacific District, to a joint venture of Tutor Perini and its subsidiary, Black Construction Corp. Tutor Perini acquired Black Construction in 1995.

Work is expected to begin this summer with substantial completion anticipated in the summer of 2026. Tutor Perini said the contract value will be included in the company’s backlog beginning in the second quarter of 2024.

“We are pleased to continue supporting the U.S. Navy on its mission critical infrastructure projects in Guam and throughout the Indo-Pacific region,” said Leonard Kaae, senior vice president and general manager of Black Construction.

The project calls for the construction of a one-story reinforced concrete building, space for vehicle parking, a storage facility and outdoor activity spaces. The interior of the building will contain child development spaces, as well as administrative, staff and other support spaces. The square footage of the building was not released.

Sitework will include grading, landscaping, walkways, fencing, equipment enclosures, sewer, water, electrical and telecommunication utilities. Work will also include environmental mitigation to maintain cultural and natural resources as well as removal of munitions and other explosives of concern.

This is the second contract announcement in recent months involving Black Construction. The other was a trio of contracts announced in April worth a combined $54.5 million for work on the United States naval support facility on the island of Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean.

The biggest of these three projects, at $43.5 million, is for repair of a parking apron and taxiways at the naval support facility’s airfield. The other two projects consist of repair work for an incinerator and a road.
