JBHM Facility Resource Group, a division of JBHM Architects, managed the funds awarded to Northrop
Grumman for improvement by the Mississippi State Legislature for MDA.
Mark Pipper served as Project Manager for a number of Facility Modernization Program (FMP) projects at the Northrop Grumman Ship Systems (NGSS) shipyard in Pascagoula. JBHM Facility Resource Group managed approximately $100 million for the West Bay 6 & 7 Expansion Project aswell as a few Blast & Paint Hall Projects and the Panel Line Expansion Project. The FMP was estimated to be a five (5) to seven (7) year plan. Aside from the normal anticipated capital improvements, much of the need for the FMP expansion is driven by the award of new defense contracts.
