The Department of Veterans Affairs, Veterans Health Administration (VHA), Program Contracting Activity Central (PCAC) is conducting a market survey and is seeking qualified Architect-Engineering (A-E) firms to provide a complete design package for the 590-403 Construct ICU and Pathology on New Floor Building 110B project located at the Hampton VA Medical Center, 100 Emancipation Drive, Hampton, Virginia, 23667.
The Construct ICU and Pathology project is required in the Hampton VA Medical Center (HVAMC), to meet the growing needs of our ICU and Pathology service requirements. It moves the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and Pathology into a larger space located closer to the Surgical services that is properly configured to the most up to date design standards. Reducing the distance from these services and Surgery improves patient privacy and staff efficiency by minimizing transportation of patients in public corridors.
This project will include demolition and new construction to relocate two of the facility's essential medical services from existing space in building 110B to a new, approximate 20,800 SF addition above the second floor in building 110B over the area occupied by Prime 6. The existing structure of Building 110B shall be analyzed to determine what structural improvements are required, if any, to accommodate the third floor addition.

However, the results and analysis of the market research will finalize the determination of the procurement method.
