The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Los Angeles District, is building the Fort Irwin Replacement Hospital in San Bernardino, Calif. The new $160 million hospital, designed by Ellerbe Becket and RLF, and constructed by Turner Construction will replace the Weed Army Community Hospital. A 216,000-sf facility, which will provide tertiary care, emergency medicine, and clinical support, will be built and the Mary Walker clinic will receive a 9,000-sf renovation. A helipad, ambulance shelter, central utilities plant, and photovoltaic farm, which will provide sustainable energy to the hospital and ancillary buildings, will also be added. This is the first in a series that highlights the construction project.
