Fort Bliss Replacement Hospital Project
Location:El Paso, Texas
Markets:Hospitals, Concrete Construction
Design Consultants:Architect-HDR (Corporate)
Sundt performed the entire concrete construction package for this new Army hospital as a subcontractor to the project’s general contractor. The facility replaces the aging William Beaumont Army Medical Center at Fort Bliss in El Paso, Texas. Sundt’s scope included all of the concrete elements – foundations, walls, slab-on-grades and slab-on-metal-decks – for six major structures: a seven-story hospital building, administration building, two clinical buildings, clinical investigation building, and central utility plant that will provide power and water to the facility. Nearly all of the 55,000 cubic yards of concrete were placed in just 14 months.
This wasn't Sundt’s first experience working to ready the site for the new hospital at Fort Bliss. Under a separate heavy civil construction contract performed directly for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the company performed $48 million worth of infrastructure work that included fencing the entire 320-acre site, installing wet and dry utilities, concrete paving, building an electrical substation for the hospital, and constructing a 300-foot-long precast concrete bridge and an on/off ramp to connect the project to the adjacent highway.
