WATSONVILLE–Granite Construction and several partners have been shortlisted to compete for part of a $4 billion joint-venture military contract, the company announced Thursday.
The heavy construction and materials company, which has seen revenues drop due to poor weather and the ongoing economic building slowdown, has been seeking alternative types of contracts such as military and alternative energy construction. Executives said recently they hoped to get to bid on the project related to moving U.S. military bases from Japan.
The massive project overseen by the Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Pacific involves building and rehabilitating roads, bridges, runways and additional naval facilities such as barracks, dormitories and medical buildings in Hawaii, Guam, Diego Garcia and other locations in the Pacific and Indian Oceans. The project completion date is May 2015.
