Menasha, Wis. (Jan. 9, 2012) - Faith Technologies, a full-service electrical and technology systems provider, has partnered with Bergelectric in a joint venture to provide the electrical construction services for Irwin Army Community Hospital in Fort Riley, Kan. This new facility is replacing the existing 50-year-old hospital to provide state-of-the-art health care for soldiers and their family members.
“We commend the brave men and women who make sacrifices every day by serving our country,” said Jeff Neathery, project manager. “We’re proud to work on a project that will return America’s heroes to good health and provide their family members a place for comfort and rest.”
Faith Technologies is working on the new $334 million, 565,000 square foot hospital under direction of the joint venture team of Balfour Beatty Construction and Walton Construction. The electrical construction includes complete lighting, power systems, central energy plant, emergency generator, automatic transfer switches and paralleling switchgear, as well as low voltage systems.
The 26-month, fast track project was designed utilizing Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology, and is being built to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver specifications. With new open spaces, healing gardens, and water therapy units, it is a stepping-stone for Army medicine and patients will be able to receive the care they deserve.
