NAB Complex 320-325

The Navy understands the unfortunate and unplanned configuration of the Naval Amphibious Base Coronado barracks buildings is a sensitive issue. We work very hard to maintain the balance between mission readiness and our desire to be good neighbors. We are also constrained by fiscal realities and challenges.

The barracks buildings are home to many of our local sailors. Naval Base Coronado recently completed a necessary $14.1M repair project for three of the barracks in this 4-building complex at NAB, in which critical quality of life issues were rehabilitated. Deteriorated bathrooms, fixtures, tiling and plumbing throughout the housing facility were repaired, as were electrical systems and lighting. Other safety and habitability concerns were also addressed.

During the design development of this project, there was some consideration given to installing shade screens that might obfuscate any reference to a swastika shape.  This concept was not pursued due to funding limitations for repair projects.

In 2010, a Military Construction Project was developed in response to public concern about the configuration of four L-shaped buildings.  The initial cost for each building to be demolished and rebuilt per the MILCON project was about $12M per building.  All MILCON projects must be approved by Congress and the MILCON was left unfunded because mission critical projects took precedence.
At the time the Navy was also working to resolve a critical housing deficit for NAB sailors. Berthing space was at a premium.  When the MILCON to address the aerial configuration was not approved for funding, the Navy looked at the feasibility of rehabilitating the buildings under a Special Project.

The US Navy remains committed to our warfighters and their safety.  By completing this recent project and making repairs to the buildings; the Navy was able to mitigate a housing deficit, return the building to current life, health and safety codes, as well as remaining fiscally responsible.
