VA Medical Center
New Mental Health Facility for VA Medical Center
HICAPS is pleased to announce the construction of a new mental health facility on the campus of the Fayetteville, N.C. VA Medical Center. The $5.8 million project features a 16,000 s.f. two-story structure, designed for future expansion of potentially three more floors. This building will be utilized by the Department of Veteran Affairs to provide examination and counseling services for our veterans.
This ground-up construction project requires complete site demolition of existing parking lots, trees, and light poles. New underground utilities, to include underground telecommunications, will be required for this building which is constructed using structural steel with a brick and polished block veneer, EIFS and a fiberglass cornice around the roof. This project will have complete finishes provided to include MEP, nurse call and fire alarm systems. An elevator will be provided with an additional pit and hoist way provided for a future elevator, and it will include a complete storefront window system to include bullet resistant doors. HICAPS broke ground on this project in February 2018. It is currently scheduled for a February 2019 completion. Darren McClerren is HICAPS’ construction manager and superintendent for the project.
