St. Louis, MO, United States, 2011/06/21 - The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and California Prison Health Care Services announced that McCarthy, has been selected as the successful design-build entity for the second phase of the California Health Care Facility (CHCF) Sto.
The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) and California Prison Health Care Services (CPHCS) recently announced that McCarthy, in joint venture with Clark Construction Group—California, LP, and in association with HDR Architecture, has been selected as the successful design-build entity for the second phase of the California Health Care Facility (CHCF) Stockton. Regional offices of Clark and McCarthy, located in Oakland and San Francisco, respectively, will lead the project team. Combined, the two companies have operated offices in California for more than 50 years and completed nearly $2 billion of work in the state last year.
The team will be responsible for the construction of housing for 1,722 patient-inmates, a diagnostics and treatment center, program spaces, and administrative support spaces. The contract is valued at approximately $512 million.
CHCF Stockton is an intermediate-level medical and mental health care facility for patient-inmates within the California state prison system. The total project is approximately 1.2 million square feet. The first phase of construction includes on-site and off-site utilities, road work, grading, secure perimeter fencing, and a central utility plant and was previously awarded to a separate design-build team.
The construction of CHCF Stockton will result in a significant positive impact for the Stockton/San Joaquin community, creating more than $1 billion in economic activity and 5,500 regional jobs.
Clark and McCarthy have partnered on several healthcare projects in California. The companies completed the 1.5 million square-foot LAC+USC Medical Replacement Facility in 2008 and are currently constructing a 500,000-square-foot hospital at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton.
