Charlotte VA Health Center Project Team Wins 2017 John L. Martin Award

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The project team for the Department of Veterans Affairs’ Charlotte Health Care Center in Charlotte, North Carolina has been awarded the 2017 John L. Martin Partnered Project of the Year Award, in the category of Buildings/Public Infrastructure Projects between $25-250 million, by the International Partnering Institute.

Completed in January 2016, this outpatient center is – to date – the largest VA health facility in the United States, augmenting the Salisbury VA Health Care System, which serves about 94,000 veterans per year (2014).

The award honors project teams who have exhibited the highest levels of collaboration on projects completed in 2016. Childress Klein and Cambridge teamed with RPA Design, PC and J.E. Dunn Construction Group and, together with the Department of Veterans Affairs, utilized Neal Flesner and Ventura Consulting Group throughout the process.

Cambridge’s president, T. Michael Scott, says, “We conducted six all-day sessions so that all stakeholders could deeply understand the concerns and goals of those designing, constructing and building the facility. As a result, we have a superior product with innovations in the process (e.g., BIM modeling for real-time permitting), as well as our final product (e.g., functional care adjacencies and communications). This is an experience that the VA and all involved can be very proud of.”
