FORT SHAFTER — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers-Honolulu District awarded a $28.3 million contract to Watts Constructors, Honolulu, Jan. 27, for a fiscal year 2012 project to build a central vehicle wash facility at Schofield Barracks.

The central vehicle wash facility is essential for the 25th Infantry Division to meet its future mission requirements, which will include having the capability to deploy anywhere within 96 hours.

Currently, no central vehicle wash facilities are available for units stationed on Oahu.

The central vehicle wash facility will include a pre-wash bath, 10 wash stations consisting of six-single and two-tandem wash bays, and a separate four-bay maintenance facility for detailed washing of tactical vehicles prior to maintenance.

Supporting requirements included in the construction are utilities, exterior lighting for security and nighttime washing operations, sanitary and industrial waste systems, paving, storm drainage, erosion control measure and signage.

Work is slated to begin in April or May.

The contract was awarded after competition by sealed bidding. Fourteen bids were received, and award was made to the lowest responsible bidder.
