Healthcare
Martin Army Community Replacement Hospital

Designed to LEED Silver

This U.S. Army Corps of Engineers hospital that includes a 21,000-SF, 3,600 ton Central Utility Plant to support the new design/build 752,400 square foot community hospital. MMC Contractors was selected as part of Turner’s design/build team to provide full mechanical services for the plumbing, medical gas, piping, HVAC including the design, fabrication and installation of all systems.

We have established an 18,000-SF fabrication shop near the site to expedite the fabrication of plumbing, medical gas and HVAC piping assemblies, equipment skids and pipe racks. The Martin Army Community Replacement Hospital (MACH) at Ft. Benning, Georgia is a design/build project that by nature incorporated many concepts of Integrated Project Delivery (IPD). Our BIM leader remained located in our Kansas City office while 2 CAD/BIM operators were on site producing the drawings and holding the regular coordination meetings with the rest of the project team.

Our project management and supervision team were able to begin fabrication of equipment skids, piping and system components as drawings were released. The hospital is currently under construction with a 2014 anticipated completion date. The Central Utility Plant is nearing completion.

""TLC and MMC Contractors have worked hand-in-hand on the development of the design for the new Martin Army Community Hospital at Fort Benning. While the project delivery may be design-build, our working efforts have always looked toward collaboratively finding the most efficient pathway to design, detail and coordinate the installation work. Relying upon your team to complete the production level construction documents and the BIM model resulted in the ability to begin fabrication of key elements of the M/P systems earlier than we have ever experienced on a project of this size and complexity.  Your team has been timely, competent, knowledgeable, and understanding of our role as the design lead and Engineer of Record, and they have provided us the insight, construction know-how, and the resources of the large, capable mechanical team that you have. Great work!" "
