Whiting-Turner Contracting has won a $29.4 million contract to construct temporary modular medical or clinical facilities at a U.S. Navy base in Bethesda, Maryland.
The Defense Department said Thursday the company will build the healthcare facilities at Naval Support Activity Bethesda to supplement space vacated by a demolition effort.
The Naval Facilities Engineering Command received two offers for the project via the Navy Electronic Commerce Online website and obligated the full contract amount at the time of award from military construction funds in fiscal year 2013.
The project is scheduled for completion in December 2017.
NSA Bethesda provides base operational support to more than 40 tenant commands such as the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, the Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute and the Warrior Transition Brigade.
