    Aurora, CO VA Health Center project nears 80 percent completion; focusing on the task at hand

    It has been nearly a year since the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Omaha District awarded a $570 million fixed price-incentive contract to Kiewit-Turner, A Joint Venture, to continue construction of the Veterans Affairs Eastern Colorado Health Care System Hospital in Aurora, Colorado. The notice to proceed was issued a few days later on Nov. 2. The project is being constructed in partnership with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Department of Veterans Affairs with Kiewit-Turner as the primary contractor. In mid-June, the project, 12 buildings includes 2 inpatient buildings, 2 clinic buildings, a diagnostic and treatment center, a research building, concourse, and energy center totaling 1.2 million square feet, and 3 garages for staff and visitor parking totaling 2,242 spaces, was nearly 55 percent complete.
