Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command (NAVFAC) Southeast was established June 2, 2006, when NAVFAC Southern Division (Charleston, South Carolina), Navy Public Works Center (Jacksonville, Florida) and the Engineering Field Activity (Jacksonville, Florida) were disestablished.
The commissioning of NAVFAC Southeast was part of a major transformation of the Command’s global engineering, acquisition, and public works organizations. NAVFAC's commands, which were comprised of Engineering Field Divisions, Engineering Field Activities, Resident Officers in Charge of Construction (ROICCs), and Public Works Centers (PWC), were consolidated into Facilities Engineering Commands (FECs). This global transformation was designed to enhance efficiency and effectiveness, and improve product and service delivery; making access to the Navy's engineering, acquisition, facilities maintenance, construction, transportation and utilities services easier for Navy Region Southeast.
NAVFAC Southeast now provides the full range of NAVFAC's products and services to Navy Region Southeast. Innovation and transformation has always been part of the three organizations' cultures. Combining them created a "one stop" organization providing the full range of facility engineering, public works and construction services.
NAVFAC Southeast is comprised of 18 Public Works Departments (PWDs) and 3 ROICCs, and is made up of over 100 military and 1,800 civilian professional engineers, architects, skilled craftsmen, environmental specialists, and acquisition professionals providing a full spectrum of facility support services round-the-clock to the Navy, Marine Corps and other customers from the Department of Defense and other federal agencies. Using dedicated in-house craftsmen and contract resources, they provide maintenance, repair and construction of facilities; engineering and design support; utilities generation and distribution; transportation services; and environmental services.
The command is headquartered at Building 903 onboard Naval Air Station (NAS) Jacksonville. Only part of the organization works at the headquarters facility as most of the workforce is positioned at PWDs and ROICC offices at various installations throughout the Region managing operations on Navy installations from Charleston, South Carolina to Corpus Christi, Texas and south to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
NAVFAC Southeast total volume of business for FY21 exceeded $2.4B, supporting the consolidation of Navy Nuclear Power Training in Charleston, SC; homeporting of Littoral Combat Ships in Mayport, FL; the Advanced Helicopter Training System (AHTS) at Naval Air Station Whiting Field, FL; the COLUMBIA Class program; Joint Task Force, Naval Station Guantanamo Bay surge and the Dry Dock recapitalization at Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay, GA. Concurrently, NAVFAC Southeast provided contingency support for five hurricane events and other natural disasters, totaling over $600M in restoration and repair caused by tornadoes from Hurricane Elsa, Winter Freeze Uri and southern Texas Flooding.
