Seabee Self-Help can provide tools, materials to JBPHH building managers

Naval Facilities Engineering Command Hawaii

Out of the many programs Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam (JBPHH) has available, one is under-utilized — Public Works Department Seabee Self-Help. The purpose of Self-Help is to provide tools and materials to all building managers at JBPHH, including tenant commands, to perform minor maintenance tasks as needed to keep their facilities, equipment, appliances and premises in a good state of repair.

Materials that can be provided are limited to paint brushes/pans, carpet tiles, plywood, drywall, lumber, light switch/receptacle covers, toilet seat/ tank handles, ceiling tiles, door handles/stops, and basic hardware (nails, screws, bolts and other fasteners) for your facility.

The process is easy. Your building manager needs to fill out a TF-1 to submit to JBPHH facilities service desk. Make sure to put a brief description on what you are trying to accomplish, and list all materials and equipment that you may need for your minor project.

Seabee Self-Help will place the order, and notify you once your materials are ready for pickup — normally, within seven to 10 business days unless the materials are not available on the island. Your building manager will pick up materials, check out tools, and receive instructions if needed. Once your project is complete, building managers need to return tools and any remaining materials to Self-Help.

Here are the directions on how to get to the Public Works Department Seabee Self-Help warehouse (building 226) at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam: from Nimitz Gate proceed down South Avenue, turn right onto Fuller Way, and the Seabee Self-Help compound is on the left. Visitor parking is outside of the compound’s fence line.

The normal business hours are from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.
