Firm wins bid for Pearl Harbor job

The Navy has awarded a $17.9 million contract to a Ho­nolulu company for the renovation of a historic 1930s Art Deco building at Pearl Harbor and the building of a new storage facility.

Naval Facilities Engineering Command Hawaii said Friday that dck/Ttec LLC has been hired to renovate historic Building 55, which was built in 1936 and designed by C.W. Dickey Architects. The building is due to be turned into office space to accommodate Naval Special Warfare Group Three, which is moving to Pearl Harbor from Naval Amphibious Base Coronado in California.

The contract also calls for dck/Ttec to design and build a storage facility for SEAL Delivery Vehicle Team One. Both projects are expected to be finished by January 2013.

Fences meant to keep areas animal-free

Workers installed two fences recently that will keep pigs and goats out of remote parts of Kauai and protect the island's water supply under a Nature Conservancy project.

Pigs and goats trample on native plants, encouraging erosion and disrupting the ecosystem. The two fences together protect 8,000 acres and create Kauai's largest pig-free and goat-free area.

One fence cuts through the Alakai Swamp. The other sweeps between cliff faces in upper Wainiha Valley. The areas are so remote that crews and fencing materials had to be brought by helicopter.

Federal and state funds paid the $700,000 cost with the help of private donors.
