JE Dunn Construction, the 5th largest healthcare building contractor in the United States, has been awarded the $52 million Hospital addition and Century Utility Plant (CUP) Replacement at the Joint Base Langley-Eustis (JBLE) Air Force Base in Joint Base Langley-Eustis, VA. The expansion project is a part of the national medical Multiple Award Task Order Contract (MATOC) program with the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Little Rock District.
Partnered with Hoefer Wysocki Architecture, JE Dunn has designed and constructed over $750 million in healthcare facilities at more than ten military bases across the nation to support the US Air Force Healthcare Facilities Modernization Program over the past eight years. The team is part of a federal government program that allows the team to compete for the design and construction of healthcare facilities across the country at active military bases against a select pool of qualified teams.
The project includes a new, two-story, 50,544-square-foot hospital addition to the existing facility and an 11,634-square-foot CUP replacement. Departments housed also include mental health, physical medicine, TOPA, education/training, information management, RMO and various common areas. The new CUP will serve the new addition and the entire existing hospital. Significant coordination will occur to ensure new piping connections and tie-ins to the existing hospital will not impact hospital functions or patient care. After the new CUP is completed and fully functional, the existing CUP will be demolished.
“This is an incredible time for JE Dunn and its federal healthcare work,” says Senior Project Manager, Chris Grant.” Our ability to expand into the East with the USACE Norfolk District opens the door to a new federal geography. We are excited to take this on with our long-time partners, Hoefer Wysocki Architecture.”
The contract also includes outfitting the building with furnishings and equipment. The project will be designed to achieve LEED Silver certification. Design and construction will take 39 months. Joint-Base Langley-Eustis is home to the 633rd Medical Group, which serves 40,000 active-duty members, their families and retirees. Joint Base Langley-Eustis Air Combat Command is the primary force provider of combat airpower to America’s warfighting commands. Established in 1916, Langley AFB is the oldest continuously active air force base in the United States.
