Bath, Me. – PC Construction has been awarded a $61.2 million contract to build and modernize facilities at Bath Iron Works.
The expansion at the historic shipyard on the banks of the Kennebec River marks the third major contract with General Dynamics Bath Iron Works for PC Construction, which has offices in Portland.
The project includes the construction of an outfitting hall measuring 311 feet long, 165 feet wide, and 110 feet high; a state-of-the-art blast and paint facility; and a new boiler building designed to increase energy efficiency.
The expansion will employ hundreds of workers from various trades over the course of the multi-building project, including significant participation from Maine-based labor. With more than 5,600 workers, Bath Iron Works already ranks as one of Maine’s largest private employers.
A delegation from PC Construction was on hand in April when the USS Zumwalt, the Navy’s newest and most technologically advanced destroyer – was christened at Bath Iron Works.
“Our Maine-based team is incredibly proud to serve Bath Iron Works, and our country, through this significant expansion of the storied shipyard that has done so much to preserve and protect our nation,” noted Jay Fayette, senior vice president of PC Construction.
