KILLEEN (Business Wire) – A joint venture made up of Balfour Beatty-McCarthy, HKS Architects
and Wingler & Sharp was chosen by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to construct a 944,000-sf
facility that will replace the existing 45-year-old Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center at Fort Hood.
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 funded $351 million of the $503 million project,
which will include a hospital, outpatient clinics, ambulance garage, logistics building, central utility plant
and three parking structures. The facility will be designed and constructed to achieve LEED Gold certification.
Construction is slated to begin in April with a May 2014 completion date.
