The contract was a two-step full and open design-build procurement process, says Denisha Braxton, spokeswoman for USACE, Fort Worth.

The two other short-listed teams were Hensel Phelps (Austin) & Robins Morton (Birmingham, Ala.) and Turner-Zachry Fort Hood Healthcare of San Antonio.

The Corps selected the Balfour Beatty/McCarthy joint venture to provide design-build services for the 944,000-sq-ft hospital project that will seek LEED-gold certification.

The facility replaces an existing, 45-year-old army medical center.

Design partners for the project are HKS, Dallas, and Wingler & Sharp, Wichita Falls.

The project received $351 million in funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and construction is scheduled to start in April 2011, aiming for an early 2014 completion.
