Architecture + Design
Our team was selected by the State of West Virginia to design the first West Virginia Veterans Nursing Facility. We utilized the services of WBCM of Baltimore to assist in project planning and programming. The team was asked to complete construction documents in a compressed time frame resulting from the need to meet VA time constraints. Construction documents on the $22,000,000.00 building were completed within three months and the State benefited from a $16.3 million dollar grant from the VA. Building construction began in early 2004 with completion in 2008.

Fast-track Design to save the State $16 million grant from VA
A True Turnkey Project
One interesting aspect of the 120-Bed facility is the development of a controlled 18-Bed Alzheimer’s Unit. These patients are allowed freedom of movement throughout the Unit and all adjacent courtyards. Patient control is maintained by both video and electronic (Wandering Resident System) means.
The team also provided full services for selection and purchasing of interior furnishings and equipment. This portion of work was approximately $1,750,000.00 – $2,000,000.00. Ultimately, the Nursing Facility has become a true turnkey project for the State of West Virginia.
