"Our Veterans have waited a long time for a new medical facility promised to them a decade ago. And now finally, we have enormous progress. I had the opportunity to go on the construction site in early April, and I was amazed at the progress KT and the VA made in just a few months. I’m equally pleased with the ongoing communication between KT, the VA, my office and others in the delegation. The KT team is very responsive and open about the progress of the facility." - Congressman Ed Perlmutter, Seventh District of Colorado
"The United Veterans Committee of Colorado (UVC) is pleased with the ongoing process of the new VA hospital construction on the Fitzsimons campus, Aurora. Joint Venture contractor, Kiewit-Turner has proactively opened the lines of communication with UVC through quarterly meetings on site and keeping the veteran community apprised of project progress. Veteran participation on the project has exceeded the congressional mandates. One example of a service-disabled veteran success is Jim Hurley of JE Hurley. Jim recently won the U.S. Small Business Administration Small Business Person of the Year for Colorado. UVC looks forward to maintaining this positive relationship with Kiewit-Turner, and further success for the veterans of Colorado and the Western Region." - Ralph Bozella, President UVC
Recognizing those who go above and beyond on this project is a joy. Kiewit-Turner and the Department of Veteran Affairs have high standards. As such, as the project has evolved, so has recognition. With 11 new structures in progress, Safety and Quality recognition are now by building and celebrated at the project level. The months highlighted below were before the site went vertical and building teams commenced. We are proud of our hard-working teammates and subcontractors and applaud your efforts.
