This Design-Build contract involves the design and construction of a “lunchbox” secure facility to support classified military technology research at NAWS China Lake. Approximately 1.1 million acres in overall size, NAWSCL is the Navy’s largest single landholding and represents 85% of the Navy’s land primarily used in its Research, Development, Acquisition, Test & Evaluation (RDAT&E) mission and 38% of the Navy’s total landholding worldwide. It has more than 20,000 square miles of controlled airspace. This small-scale Warfare Technology Office (WTO) project will provide a state-of-the-art facility to perform a part of the Navy’s critical mission for China Lake.
