Colby Co. Completes Design of VA Clinic

Colby Co. recently completed the Type A study and Type B design services for a Community Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC) for the U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs in New Bedford, Massachusetts. The design included a 6,500 SF renovation and 2,000 SF addition to existing CBOC. Phasing plans were created to allow the facility to remain operational throughout the entire construction period.

The design scope included:

  • Survey
  • Geotechnical
  • Parking and Traffic Studies
  • Civil and Drainage Design
  • Anti Terrorism Force Protection Design
  • Architecture
  • Structural Engineering
  • Environmental Testing
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Fire Protection Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering

The project will go to construction in the summer of 2013 with Colby Co. providing Type C construction administration services.
