With Contract Dispute Settled, Corps Breaks Ground on Ft. Benning Hospital

Publication Date: 5/23/2011
Format: HTML

After lengthy delays from bid protests and legal action, the Army Corps of Engineers' Savannah District held a ceremonial groundbreaking last month for the $333-million Martin Army Community Hospital at Fort Benning, Ga. Turner Construction Co., Atlanta, will lead the design-build contract for construction of the 745,000-sq-ft facility. The Corps first awarded Turner the contract in 2009.Shortly thereafter, Ellerbe Becket, Turner's design partner, was acquired by AECOM. Competing bidders cited that fact as a conflict of interest because another AECOM entity, HSMM, had been previously contracted to work on the project. The U.S. Government Accountability Office ultimately recommended that Turner's contract be terminated. Turner appealed, and a U.S. Court of Federal Claims judge ordered the contract be reinstated. The project is now targeting a January 2014 completion.
