Omaha, NE –  A $570 million fixed price-incentive contract was awarded today to Kiewit-Turner, A Joint Venture, to continue construction of the Veterans Affairs Eastern Colorado Health Care System Hospital in Aurora, Colorado. The project's estimated completion will be in 2018.

“We are moving forward in partnership with the Department of Veterans Affairs and Kiewit-Turner to deliver a quality project that meets the needs of our Veterans while also honoring our fiscal responsibilities to U. S. taxpayers,” said Col. John W. Henderson, Omaha District Commander.

When completed, this 12-building, 1.2 million-square-foot campus will serve U.S. Veterans.

"We are  extremely grateful to our respective team members at the VA, KT, and from within the Corps, for their hard work and spirit of cooperation while working through the details of this extremely important and complex procurement," said Henderson. 

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is the world’s premiere public engineering organization, responding to our nation’s needs in peace and war. The Corps provides engineering and construction services, environmental restoration and management services, research and development assistance, management of water and land related natural resources, relief and recovery work, and other management and technical services. The Omaha District manages over 1800 projects and an annual program of more than $1 billion.
