WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Los Angeles District selected Turner Construction Company to build the Fort Irwin Replacement Hospital in San Bernardino, Calif. 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 that 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.
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.
