Shipbuilder wants grant for skills-training facility
Published: July 16,2013
PASCAGOULA — Ingalls Shipbuilding has applied for a $1.3-million state grant to build a basic skills training annex to the nearly complete Haley Reeves Barbour Maritime Training Academy.
Jackson County has requested proposals for professional services, such as engineering, for the project.
Officials tells The Mississippi Press the 4,105-square-foot multi-purpose classroom that will be able to hold 320 people. The room will be equipped with projectors and other technology needed for presentations.
The room was originally an alternate for the maritime academy project but after the bids came in, Ingalls decided not to award it.
After the county and company learned that the state had freed up some additional Hurricane Katrina community development block grants, they sent in a proposal to get the classroom back on the table.
