According to information available from the US Army Corps of EngineersĀ® Norfolk District, the $806.9 million Fort Belvoir Community Hospital Military Construction project, which began Nov. 8th, 2007, and is set for completion in spring of 2011, is developing well on schedule, said project team members. The Norfolk District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers manages the project’s construction phase, which is on an accelerated timeline as mandated by the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) authorization. Once completed, the Joint Task Force National Capital Region (Medical) will staff and equip the facility for subsequent operation.
