Project Managers Tour Bloated VA Hospital Construction Jobsite

In Aurora, Colorado, construction professionals joined news reporters for an inside peek at a Veteran’s Administration hospital that’s being built. The $1.73 billion project is mired in controversy. It’s well over budget and delayed, as contractors point fingers at VA officials, and vice versa.  To try and sort out the mess, the project is now operating under a provisional contract managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Meanwhile, contractor Kiewit-Turner is keeping some 650 construction workers on site on an interim contract, reports The Denver Post. That’s barely half the number employed at the site before the shutdown.
