Fifty new Coast Guard housing units are coming to Kodiak. That’s according to Perini Management Services – a Massachusetts-based construction firm that announced this week it had been awarded a nearly $85 million contract for the project. The build-out is expected to be completed in 2025.
The development is slated for Nemetz Park – which is located about 3 miles off base and near existing Coast Guard housing.
Coast Guard Base Kodiak received more than $200 million dollars from the bipartisan infrastructure bill – $40 million of that was allocated for new housing on the island, and $40 million will go towards a new childcare center. Plans for the Nemetz Park site encompass three and four bedroom duplex units for Coast Guard families. Perini Management Services will also build roads and sidewalks as part of the development.
The Nemetz Park development will be Perini Management’s second Coast Guard housing build on Kodiak – the company built 10 units on base back in 2016.
Work on the new development is expected to begin immediately, according to the company’s press release.
Perini Management Services is a subsidiary of Tutor Perini Corporation, which is headquartered in Sylmar, California. A company spokesperson deferred questions about the contract to the Coast Guard. They could not be reached by phone for comment.
