Ventura County Medical Center Hits Structural Milestone Ahead of Schedule
VENTURA, Calif. - The Ventura County Medical Center (VCMC) Replacement Wing project has topped out 15 days ahead of schedule. Clark Construction Group, the lead design-builder, placed the project's final structural beam on March 2 and celebrated the effort with a jobsite barbeque. With major structural work complete, the project team will focus on erecting the 226,000 square-foot medical center's exterior and begin interior work.
Construction of VCMC's new medical wing began in May 2013 and, since then, the project team has worked more than 220,000 man hours without a recordable or lost time safety incident.
Planned to achieve LEED® for Healthcare Silver certification, the hospital design includes green roofs, a healing and viewing garden, skylights, exterior canopies and screens, and a pediatrics play area that will enhance the facility's healing environment.
The VCMC Replacement Wing is expected to be complete in 2017.
