The U.S. Navy awarded Escondido-based Bilbro Construction Co. a $7.2 million task order to perform interior renovations to Building 457 at March Air Reserve Base in Moreno Valley. The project also includes an emergency control center facility.

The order has one planned modification which if exercised would increase the value of the task order to $8.6 million.

Work is expected to last through April 2019.

Bilbro Construction is a small business.

The Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southwest in San Diego awarded the task order. It received five proposals for the work. Operations and maintenance funds for the work were scheduled to expire at the end of the federal fiscal year on Sept. 30.
