Members of the Clark team joined representatives from the Naval Facilities Engineering Systems Command (NAVFAC), the Defense Health Agency (DHA), Medical Facilities Program Office (MFPO), Walter Reed National Military Medical Center Command (WRNMMC), and the project’s craftworkers to commemorate the milestone with a topping out celebration. Over the last year, crews have poured 35,276 cubic yards of concrete to bring Building C to full height.
The P-114 Medical Center Addition and Alteration project is being completed in phases to allow the hospital to remain fully operational during construction. Phase 1 started in the first quarter of 2020 with interior demolition and once complete will consist of 47,000 square feet of medical office space accompanied with four new MRI rooms. Then, in May 2020, the Clark team demolished three buildings to make way for the new 575,000-square-foot health care building.
Phase 2 is scheduled to start in the third quarter of 2024 with two additional buildings being demolished to make space for 38,000 square feet of medical office space, an auditorium that can seat 318 people, as well as a chapel large enough to seat 104 people.
The project is slated to be complete in spring 2027.
