Sundt is nearing completion of a $23 million federal construction project at Naval Weapons Station (NWS) Earle in Colts Neck, New Jersey, to reverse damage caused by Hurricane Sandy in 2012. The storm affected the utility infrastructure and several buildings along NWS Earle’s 2.9-mile-long pier complex, where the weapons station carries out its mission to safely deliver ordnance to U.S. Navy warships.
The completed potable water and sanitary sewer lines (approximately 9,600 linear feet of each) installed along the trestle/pier.
NWS Earle is one of only two naval installations on the east coast with this ordnance mission, which makes our project especially important and critical to keeping the world’s sea lanes open.

Sailors stationed at Naval Weapons Station (NWS) Earle in Colts Neck, New Jersey, will have more cash to use for their holiday meals this year, thanks to a $1,000 donation made by Sundt to the NWS Earle First Class Petty Officers’ Association (FCPOA). The group will use the funds to purchase hams, turkeys and pies for holiday dinners, grocery gift cards for families in need, and toys for children’s gifts. (Sundt also made a $1,000 donation to Earle’s FCPOA for the same purpose at Thanksgiving.)
“Being given the opportunity to contribute to this group and support the work they are doing at Earle was a truly uplifting experience,” said Keon Bates, Sundt Senior Project Engineer.
Sundt is currently performing a $23.9 million federal construction project at NWS Earle that involves repairing damage caused in 2012 by Hurricane Sandy. Most of the storm’s impact occurred along NWS Earle’s 2.9-mile-long pier complex, where the weapons station carries out its mission to safely deliver ordnance to U.S. Navy warships. Sundt is replacing or repairing damaged or missing sections of the potable water mains, steam systems, sanitary sewer systems, and electrical systems on several of the trestles that support rail access to and from pier-side vessels. The project also includes replacement/repair of architectural, plumbing, mechanical, fire protection and electrical systems at two of the buildings located on the pier, as well as demolition, electrical, foundation/structural and civil work at the electrical substation located on shore at the head of the pier complex.

Damaged utility lines along the pier are being demolished, removed and replaced.
When Hurricane Sandy pummeled the east coast in 2012, the storm damaged the utility infrastructure and several buildings at Naval Weapons Station (NWS) Earle in Colts Neck, New Jersey. Most of the damage occurred along NWS Earle’s 2.9-mile-long pier complex, where the Weapons Station carries out its mission to safely deliver ordnance to U.S. Navy warships. A number of temporary repairs have kept NWS Earle functioning since the storm, but permanent repairs and improvements are on the way.
Sundt has begun a $23.9 million federal construction project that will reverse the damage from Sandy while readying the Weapons Station, specifically the pier complex, for the next 100-year storm event. Read more here.

Sundt and a joint venture partner were selected to construct a replacement of the 50-year-old Delalio Elementary School at Marine Corps Air Station New River in North Carolina. Find out more about how this $23.3 million project – our third for the Marine Corps and the Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Mid-Atlantic – will create a much-needed, modern educational facility.

The federal construction project at MCAS Yuma included construction of an air traffic control tower to guide the F-35Bs during training missions.
Sundt’s most recent federal construction project at Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) Yuma, Ariz., is providing training space for the F-35B – the principal aircraft supporting Marine Corps reconnaissance and combat missions around the world. The F-35B is a joint-strike-fighter (JSF) aircraft with short takeoff, vertical landing and stealth capabilities.
Sundt’s $24.3 million contract includes construction of a 198,756-square-foot landing field consisting of two simulated aircraft carrier landing decks; a 72,990-square-foot aircraft direct fueling station; an air traffic control tower; air operations space; three separate helicopter landing deck replicas; installation of tramline lights; a fire/maintenance building; a temporary F-35B hangar; and connecting roads and infrastructure.
All of the project’s concrete paving – totaling 41,700 cubic yards – was performed by Sundt’s own crews. We also performed the masonry work for the control tower and placed 3,400 cubic yards of high-temperature concrete on the simulated aircraft carrier flight decks. High-temperature concrete is designed to withstand the extreme heat generated by the F-35B’s jet engines during takeoffs and landings.
Sundt also completed a $20.4 million JSF flight simulation facility for the F-35B at MCAS Yuma prior to the award of the auxiliary landing field project.
