Client: Department of Veterans Affairs
Architect: S+B James Design Build
Square Footage: 28,000
S+B James worked on the new buildings at the Veterans Domiciliary along Highway 62 in White City, ensuring the exterior facade reflected the historic architecture. The building projects were made to capture the historic look of the center, which was built over 70 years ago. Additionally, the brick that was used during construction was meant to complement the original brick buildings already there. The new buildings offer more beds, and create additional space to house Veterans and offer more services.
Terry Mackey managed the construction of this design-build project replacing a 28,000 square foot wood framed dormitory and connecting corridors. The adjacent dorm buildings were occupied during the entire project. Site access from the North was very limited due to the congestion of the VA patients and staff, thus requiring detailed scheduling and coordination of the construction activities to ensure minimal interruptions to the VA patients and staff.
