VENTURA, Calif. — Ventura Consulting Group was recently honored with an Excellence in Partnering Award at the AGC of California’s 2014 Constructor Awards banquet held at Disney’s Grand Californian hotel in Anaheim on June 7.
VCG facilitated the partnering on the new LEED-Gold designed Naval Hospital at Camp Pendleton which was the recipient in the over $50-million project category. Earlier in the year, the Naval Hospital project won the AGC Build America Marvin M. Black Excellence in Partnering Award, the industry’s highest partnering honor.
Built by Clark/McCarthy, a joint venture, the replacement hospital project was delivered six months ahead of schedule and more than $100 million below the Navy’s original budget. Located just inside the main gate on the south end of Camp Pendleton, the project included construction of a 500,000-square-foot hospital; a central utility plant; a new 1,500-space parking facility and 1,000 surface parking spaces. In addition to leading the project’s design and construction efforts, Clark/McCarthy conducted the planning, procuring and installation of all medical equipment, furniture and artwork, as well as the training of hospital staff. This was the first time the Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southwest had relied on this contracting method.
