Hochtief’s US subsidiary Turner Construction and Walsh Construction will build an $840m medical centre for veterans in Louisville, Kentucky in a contract awarded by the US Army Corps of Engineers and the Department of Veterans Affairs.

The 910,000-sq-ft hospital will have 104 beds and will replace Louisville’s current Robley Rex VA Medical Center.

Work includes building parking structures, a central utility plant, roadways and sidewalks.

The facility will integrate what Turner called modern carer concepts, including care for female veterans with a Women’s Health Clinic with four Patient Aligned Care Teams.

Turner said small, local, and veteran-owned groups will be involved in the construction.

Work will begin in Autumn 2021 and is due to be completed by 2025.
