The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has awarded a $176 million contract for the next phase of a massive building upgrade of the Canandaigua VA Medical Center.
The contract to Hueber-Breuer Construction and Pike Co. (HBP) Joint Venture, of Rochester, sets in motion work to begin in spring 2020. That will include demolition of Buildings 33 and 34 to provide adequate space for the construction of eight single-story, cottage-style structures with a centralized community center. Renovations to Building 9 will provide domiciliary facilities for veterans and include logistical features such as a loading dock.
Several existing buildings on the campus at Fort Hill Avenue are also set to receive partial renovations in order to accommodate non-patient functions and swing-space. Utilities will also be upgraded to support the new/renovated spaces.
