The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has awarded Nika a four-year, $10 million to provide architect-engineer support representative services during the construction of the future Weed Army Community Hospital in Fort Irwin, California.
Nika will provide multidisciplinary personnel and full-time on-site representatives such as mechanical engineers, electrical engineers, cost estimators, commissioning managers and master schedulers as the company oversees major construction work on the healthcare facility, Nika said Thursday.
The 216,000-square-foot healthcare facility is designed to utilize its location to meet projected sustainability goals such as energy efficiency and the U.S. Green Building Council LEED-BD+C platinum-level rating.
Kabir Chaudhary, Nika president and CEO, said that the company’s experience in energy design and green building solutions plus LEED-accredited professional engineers and architects will work to provide WACH environmental and economic services.
WACH will work to support soldiers and military families at the National Training Center.
