Bethesda, MD General Contractor: Whiting-Turner Contracting Company
Contract Amount: $25,647,800
Start Date: 2/1/2010
Completion Date: 6/1/2011
This design/assist project, which was three projects in one, includes all mechanical components and systems, including steam and chilled water site utilities. From a manpower standpoint, it is the largest job Shapiro & Duncan has ever taken on.
Our biggest challenge, in addition to the size and scope of the project, was the tight and inflexible completion date. With patients coming from the old Walter Reed facility in Northwest Washington, D.C. as part of the Base Relocation and Closure (BRAC) initiative, the end date could not be moved.
