The new 1.2 million square foot campus includes a four-story concourse, research facilities, diagnostic and treatment buildings, inpatient treatment buildings, and clinic buildings.
With over 35,000 recorded man hours from Beacon Communications alone, Dan Amoroso, Beacon’s Director of Pre-Construction & Engineering, admits that this project has been a big undertaking, but remains grateful to Beacon staff for playing their respective parts.
According to Dan, “This project taught Beacon a lot. It taught us a lot about project management, handling the RFI process, and communication with contractors. As a group, this project taught us how to persevere; and it trained some of our key staff. There’s a long list of people that worked on this project; and they all learned key lessons.”
The project was expansive with Buildings holding multiple specialty clinics, including Cardiology, Endocrinology, General Surgery, Oncology, Orthopedics and more. Other buildings were designed for Therapy and Rehabilitation. Still more buildings hold facilities for Veterans Support Services.
Dan admits that the sheer geography and size of the project posed a unique challenge. “Every building had its own team; and we had project foremen assigned to each building. This project exposed our good qualities, our leadership qualities, and demonstrated how talented the Beacon team was when it came to job control on all levels.”
Beacon’s scope of work included the BiAmp Vocia Distributed Audio System and the Rauland-Borg responder 5 Nurse Call System, integrated, and easy-to-use communication and audio systems that will help to provide the best possible patient care.
Cutting the ribbon
On July 21, 2018, a ribbon cutting ceremony will take place for veterans at 10:00 a.m. at 1700 N. Wheeling Street, Aurora, Colorado.
“To say this place is extraordinary would be an understatement,” said Meagan Baalman Wairama, Integrated Marketing Specialist at Beacon Communications. “This was a large project accomplished for the veterans of our country. Beacon Communications was honored to play our part.”
