This project involved the construction of a three-level concrete hospital parking garage with approximately 250,000 square feet of elevated concrete deck located at Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas. The garage is one of three garages (hospital, clinic, staff) and is part of the $600M construction of the new army base hospital. The original contractor for the garage, retained by the project’s general contractor, defaulted. Subsequently, the completion contractor selected to finish the project walked off the job after numerous issues and non-payment to subcontractors and suppliers. The surety retained VERTEX to manage the completion of the hospital garage and the remaining scope at the clinic garage. Following completion of the work, VERTEX served as an expert for the surety in resolution of the claims of the Project, which resulted in a favorable settlement for the surety.
