Major Construction at VA Palo Alto Health Care System

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- The Department of Veterans Affairs’ Office of Construction and Facilities Management recently announced the award of “Phase 2” major construction project within the VA Palo Alto Health Care System to S. J. Amoroso Construction Company, located in Redwood City, Calif.

“This next phase in construction at the VA Palo Alto Health Care System is very exciting for us, as we continue to transform facilities and access to meet the ever-changing needs of California Veterans,” said Jason Nietupski, VA Palo Alto Health Care System Chief of Facility Planning and Development.

The $111 million project is anticipated to begin April 2014 and should be completed within a 30-month construction period. Phase 2 consists of three significant parts:

* Loop Road Realignment and Site Utilities. This construction will relocate a section of the VA Palo Alto campus’ Loop Rd. to improve vehicle and pedestrian congestion and allow for long-term growth of the eastern portion of the Palo Alto campus. Additionally, the project will include approximately 1,700 feet of underground utilities upgrade.

* Radiology Consolidation. This construction consists of a multi-level, 34,000-square-feet addition to the primary hospital (Bldg. 100) on the VA Palo Alto campus, which will replace the existing radiology facility (Bldg. 102) and renovate approximately 10,000-square-feet of the existing radiology department in Bldg. 100. The new space will centralize and accommodate a large variety of new radiology equipment for patients.

* Parking Structure 2. This new parking structure will provide a five-level, 750-space facility to primarily serve Veterans visiting Primary Care (Bldg. 5), the main hospital (Bldg. 100), Building 6, the new Research Center and Ambulatory Care Center. The concrete structure will be located on the eastern side of the VA Palo Alto campus.
