    Six construction companies have received almost a quarter billion dollars work of orders to build or expand US Navy facilities in Hawaii Area of Responsibility, the US Department of Defense announced.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Most of the construction work will be carried out within the Naval Facilities Engineering Command in the Hawaii area of responsibility, the Defense Department stated.

    "CCI Construction Services; D&D Construction; Dawson Federal; GSI Pacific; TKH-ASI LLC and Hawaii Pacific JV [all in] Hawaii are each being awarded… contracts for construction projects… [worth] $245 million," the announcement said on Monday.

    The work will involve providing equipment for "new construction, repair, alteration and related demolition of existing infrastructure… within the state of Hawaii," the announcement added.

    US Pacific Command, which is based at Camp H. M. Smith in the US state of Hawaii plays a central role in implementing the Obama administration’s "pivot to Asia" policy.
