The Navy has awarded three contracts for the design and construction of three separate housing projects at Marine bases in North Carolina.
The bachelor enlisted quarters will be built at Camp Lejeune and at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point.
The Naval Facilities Engineering Command in Norfolk, Va., says the buildings will more closely resemble campus dormitories than traditional military barracks.
All three facilities will cost about $41 million each. They are expected to be completed by the summer of 2013.
The two Camp Lejune projects were awarded to Andale Construction, Inc./Sundt 8A Mentor Protégé JV of Tempe, Ariz.
Kisaq-RQ JV of Carlsbad, Calif. has been awarded the Cherry Point contract.
