Doctors and medical staff have recently moved into the renovated Langley Air Force Base Hospital and Veterinary Clinic. The 160,000 SF renovation reconfigured and modernized the United State Air Force first Medical Group facilities to support the latest technologies and equipment. The $62 million expansion project was named best project in a public sector building over $15 million by the Design Build Institute of America – Southeast Region.
Langley Air Force Base Hospital and Veterinary Clinic was an integrated design-build project, where Heery provided architecture, engineering, interior design, and construction for the phased expansion to reconfigure, right size, and modernize the U.S. Air Force 1st Medical Group. Heery was also responsible and held the contract for Initial Outfitting and Transition (IO&T). The majority of the 160,000 SF renovation occurred in the main hospital, Building 257, but included phased renovation to Building 267, located on the hospital main campus, and on-base medical assets Building 74. All phasing of the project occurred within existing assets with no temporary trailers or modular buildings allowed. All departments not undergoing renovation remained in operation.
The entire mechanical system was replaced while the building was occupied; the system was designed, scheduled, and built so that the existing facilities would remain climate controlled during construction. The project also included the design and construction of a veterinarian care facility of 3,492 SF to serve the military working dogs and the base pet population. Additionally, Heery removed the exterior skin and replaced with precast, this was accomplished while the building was occupied and remained operational.
