William Beaumont Army Medical Center
Size: 1,132,000 Square Feet
Project Type: Military Hospital
Location: Fort Bliss, Texas
Midwest Steel of Detroit Michigan announced today that they have been awarded a significant structural steel contract to build the replacement hospital at Fort Bliss, Texas. The new 1,132,000 square-foot facility will replace the existing William Beaumont Army Medical Center to accommodate the increased troop presence and dependent care resulting from the recent Fort Bliss expansion program.
Midwest Steel is pleased to have been selected for the structural steel portion of the project. The new medical center design incorporated numerous sustainable initiatives with the goal of receiving Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED, Silver certification. This project is expected to open in 2017.
“Midwest Steel is known for many things, but our expertise as a structural steel contractor on large health care projects is something we take particular pride in. These projects require significant expertise both in the design and the construction stages and that’s where we excel. When we can be involved in the design discussion early, it helps make everything run very smoothly when steel erection actually begins.” said Tom Broad, Executive Vice President, Midwest Steel.
Midwest Steel is a union contractor headquartered in Detroit Michigan with offices across North America. It has established itself as the leader of the structural steel industry through its innovative pre-construction design services, delivery of world class quality while maintaining an unmatched job site safety record.
