Two years after beginning construction on the Replacement Naval Hospital at Camp Pendleton, the Clark/McCarthy Joint Venture (CMJV) and hospital team is 70 percent into the build, with more than $270 million worth of work in place.
Navy Facilities Engineering Command Southwest (NAVFAC) awarded a contract with a total value of $451 million on Sept. 1, 2010.
The Replacement Naval Hospital project has required a collaborative effort among the Navy, hospital, and all contractor teams to achieve this milestone. The joint venture team includes HKS Architects Inc. for the fast-tracked, design-build project.
The Replacement Naval Hospital is under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, and represents the largest Recovery Act Project in the Navy, having a base contract value of $394 million and incorporating a planned modification for turnkey medical equipment valued at approximately $55 million.
The Replacement Naval Hospital is currently two months ahead of schedule and under budget.
