Electrical work included a new transformer, LED lighting, passenger elevator, and data. New mechanical work included a new boiler and chiller, air handling systems, ductwork, and controls. Site work included grading, new utility lines, surface parking, and landscaping. As this is a historic building, work was in accordance with the state historic preservation office requirements and relevant national historic preservation briefs for each definable feature of work.

RENOVATE & EXPAND CLC & HOSPICE (BLDG 23) – DURHAM, NC VA MEDICAL CENTER
The project consisted of 11,995 square feet of select renovation at floors 1 and 2 of the existing Community Living Center. Additionally, the project included the construction of a new 14,540 SF hospice wing and new courtyard between the existing Community Living Center and the new expansion. The cost magnitude was $5-10M. The project was located at the active Durham VA Medical Center for the Department of Veterans Affairs. Close coordination was required with the VA Staff, Hospital Staff, and Contracting representatives to assure little to no disruption in hospital functionality. This particular VA campus faced challenges with very limited parking and site space. MSK closely coordinated our site activity with the VA and subcontractors to maintain access to the site and surrounding buildings without disturbing the day to day operations of the VAMC. Major trades included grading, asbestos abatement, structure demolition, concrete, structural steel framing, steel decking, metal fabrications, all finishes, specialties, furnishings, fire protection, MEP, communications, mass notification system, paving, as well as new and existing utility work.

NEW PARKING STRUCTURE MT. HOME VAMC, TN
The Construct Above Ground parking garage project involved the demolition of an existing parking lots followed by the construction of a multi-story parking garage for the James H. Quillen VA Medical Center in Mountain Home, Tennessee. The scope included but was not limited to general construction, alterations, caissons, paving, grading, steel, masonry, mechanical, architectural, civil/site, utility, electrical, removal of structures, and the erection of pre-cast concrete.

MSK Construction offered complimentary value engineering services through this RFP negotiated bid. Pairing with a precast industry leader, Tindall Corp, MSK was able to offer the Department of the VA several cost saving solutions. Many unforeseen conditions involving unfavorable soil conditions and sink holes were discovered during this project, which led to significant change orders for additional caisson work. MSK kept up diligent and transparent negotiations throughout these change orders with the VA.
CORRECT DEFICIENCIES & RENOVATE BUILDING 7 – SALISBURY, NC VAMC
This project scope included but was not limited to general construction, alterations, walks, grading, drainage, mechanical and electrical work, utility systems, necessary removal of existing structures and construction and certain other items. MSK provided all materials and completed all work with little to no effect or down time to B7 and surrounding buildings, other than what had been indicated on the drawings for phasing.
MSK ran two crews, a day time crew for exterior work and a night time crew for the interior work. By having these two crews it allowed us to truly utilize every contract day to its fullest. HVAC Scope: HVAC scope for project 659-14-202 consisted of the installation of new HVAC equipment to include 3 air handling units, 49 VAVs with associated seismic and hydronic plumbing, radiant ceiling panels, heat exchangers, expansion tanks, inline booster pumps, and all DDC Controls. In order to properly install this equipment MSK tapped into the campuses steam, CW, and HW mains and routed appropriately to the new units sitting on the roof of both the Core Clinic and Building 7. Phasing of HVAC: Per the contract documents there was to be no demolition of the existing system and all associated equipment until the new HVAC system has been properly installed, tested, and certified. At that time the existing equipment was removed from the roof and within the interior ceilings. Electrical Scope: Per the contract documents MSK was required to remove and then reinstall 2 electrical panels rated at 400amp and 600amp. This also required all new feeders and associated circuitry. In addition to the panels, MSK installed new lighting protection on the roof as well as new data and communication lines.
