BATTLE CREEK, Mich. — SSOE Group (www.ssoe.com), an international engineering, procurement, and construction management firm, announced today it has completed the design development for the ambulatory care expansion project taking place at the Battle Creek Veteran Affairs Medical Center. A team comprised of SSOE, VOA Associates Incorporated and three other consultants was selected as the most highly qualified team for this 21,760-square-foot expansion and 9,600-square-foot renovation project.
The Battle Creek VAMC provides a wide variety of inpatient and outpatient services to more than 217,000 area veterans. The goal of the project is to relieve overcrowding in examination and treatment areas that are currently 54 percent undersized.
The project involves adding 16 new exam rooms and two new procedure rooms as well as support areas including reception and waiting areas, restrooms and physicians’ offices. Renovation will include the necessary modifications to access this new space and correct several other existing space deficiencies.
SSOE was chosen for this project because of extensive experience in the industry. “SSOE is honored to lead the design of this project, which will ultimately enhance the healthcare treatment environment for some of our nation’s heroes,” said Mike Duffey, P.E., director of Federal Programs for SSOE Group.
Construction is anticipated to begin in August 2011 and completion slated for 2012.
