SAN DIEGO, CALIF. — The 500,000-square-foot Replacement Hospital at Camp Pendleton topped out today. The Clark/McCarthy design-build team erected more than 4,000 tons of structural steel to reach the milestone. The team, with Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Southwest, marked the completion of the project’s structure with a jobsite lunch and celebration. The Replacement Hospital at Camp Pendleton Project team has worked more than 250,000 manhours over the past 14 months with zero lost-time incidents. The project is currently one month ahead of schedule.
When complete in 2014, the new hospital will include inpatient medical facilities with 54 patient rooms and up to 60 beds, ancillary departments, emergency care, primary care, specialty care clinics, and support spaces and facilities for non-ambulatory patients who require stays in excess of 24 hours. Additional construction includes a central utilities plant; more than 2,500 parking spaces including a 1,500 space, multi-level parking structure, and site development. Clark/McCarthy’s contract also includes a planned modification to furnish and install the furniture, fixtures, and equipment necessary to support the facility’s function and enhance turnover of the hospital. The project team anticipates earning LEED® Gold certification. Jim Eisenhart of VCG is facilitating this project. Click HERE to read more.
