U.S. Navy North Island Naval Base
Owner / General
Serving as a the prime design-build subcontractor for decentralization, Jackson & Blanc worked alongside Energy Systems Group to update and replace an inefficient centralized steam plant at the North Island Naval Base in Coronado, Calif. The $50 million project was complex and required construction of an 800HP temporary steam system to keep the base operational during construction. The Jackson & Blanc team also assisted in designing specialized prefabricated “clean” steam plants to serve the nuclear-powered ships while in port, additional prefabricated steam plants to serve industrial portions of the Fleet Readiness Center segment of North Island, as well as individual renovations to more than 40 additional facilities that provide local steam and heating services. To ensure timely and on-budget delivery, our team developed a four-phased approach segmenting the project to seamlessly meet deadlines and avoid impacting ongoing operations at the facility. The project was completed in just 18 months and ensures the naval base is properly prepared for the future. The project was fully funded through energy and maintenance savings over a 20-year performance period.
