Turner Construction Company Awarded Fort Irwin Replacement Hospital

WASHINGTON, June 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Los Angeles District selected Turner Construction Company to build the Fort Irwin Replacement Hospital in San Bernardino, California.  The $160 million hospital replaces the Weed Army Community Hospital, and marks a significant milestone in the United States Department of Defense commitment to delivering world-class healthcare to all service members and their families.  

The project consists of a 216,000 square foot hospital, which provides tertiary care, emergency medicine, and clinical support.  Additionally, the project includes a 9,000-square-foot renovation of the Mary Walker clinic and construction of a helipad, ambulance shelter, central utilities plant, and photovoltaic farm which will provide sustainable energy to the hospital and ancillary buildings.  

The hospital's design will utilize evidence-based and world class design principles, and will be designed and constructed to achieve LEED Platinum certification.  Ellerbe Becket/RLF Joint Venture will provide full design services for the project.

"The Fort Irwin Replacement Hospital is a significant win for our company because it builds upon Turner's outstanding reputation as the leading builder of premiere healthcare facilities for the government," said Chris Jahrling, Vice President and General Manager of Turner's Federal Services group in Washington, D.C.  "We are excited and honored to partner with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and contribute to their mission to provide world class care to service members and their families." 

Turner recently completed the Fort Belvoir Community Hospital in Virginia in a joint venture with Gilbane Building Company and is constructing the Martin Army Community Hospital at Fort Benning, Georgia and the Department of Veterans Affairs Denver Replacement Hospital in Aurora, Colorado in joint venture with the Kiewit Building Group.
