Perlmutter Statement on Signing of Long-Term Contract to Complete Construction of Aurora VA Medical Facility
U.S. Representative Ed Perlmutter (CO-07) issued the following statement on the long-term contract signed today to complete the replacement VA medical facility under construction in Aurora, CO:
“I’m pleased to see a long-term contract signed today between the Army Corps of Engineers and Kiewit Turner to complete the VA medical facility in Aurora. With this contract, the Army Corps will officially take over as project manager, the number of people working on site will double, and a new target opening date is set for February 2018. In addition, the Army Corps has a rigorous oversight plan in place and will provide regular reports to Congress regarding cost and schedule to ensure the project stays on track.”
“Last month, Congress did its part to finish this project by lifting the spending cap and securing the full remaining balance to complete the facility. I will continue to monitor the project to make sure this world class facility is completed to serve our Veterans as quickly as possible.”
