Naval Base (NB) Kitsap, Bremerton, held a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of the new CVN maintenance complex, Sept. 14. The old warehouse, where the complex now stands, was transformed and renovated to create the CVN maintenance building as a way to help the Navy efforts to improve the efficiency and quality of work of the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard (PSNS) and Intermediate Maintenance Facility (IMF) personnel.

During the ribbon cutting ceremony, Capt. Reid Tanaka, NB Kitsap commanding officer, welcomed and thanked guests for attending the special event.

The CVN maintenance complex will support its staff by providing 61,462 square feet in a three story building with shop areas, project administrative areas and extra outdoor storage. The complex also improves the quality of work life for contractors by providing expanded restroom facilities, hazmat showers and locker rooms for contractors.

After the ribbon cutting ceremony, a tour was opened to all guests to view the new facility.
