David Grant Medical Center Modernization, Phase 3

The David Grant Medical Center (DGMC) at Travis AFB in Northern California is the Air Force Medical Service's flagship medical treatment facility in the US. Currently undergoing modernization, Phase III includes work in seven Departments: Heart Lung Vascular Dept, Surgery Center RVU Dept, Surgery Center RWP Dept, ICU and CVICU Depts, Women's Health Dept, Labor and Delivery Dept, and Mental Health Dept. Countywide Mechanical worked in as many as four departments simultaneously.

The GC, United Excel, is also the architect and engineers on the project (United Excel Design). For Countywide Mechanical, the project is a design-bid-build project delivery method. Working in the cramped and often times congested interstitial spaces requires careful planning and coordination. Maintaining hospital operation during construction is paramount.

Project Location: Travis AFB, California

Project Owner: US Army Corps of Engineers

"The first thing that comes to mind is the teamwork attitude that Countywide portrayed from the first time we reached out to them. We were asking a lot of Countywide to get started on the project in a short amount of time, and everyone on the team went above and beyond — all the while maintaining a professionalism that we don't always see during stressful situations.    The second item that sticks out to me is how quickly the Countywide team jumped in to help resolve an AHU issue as we were trying to turn over a renovated department. This was a reuse unit that ended up having bad motors, and without any hesitation, the Countywide team joined the effort to figure out the quickest way to resolve the situation. They performed as a true trade partner, not just another subcontractor on the project.    My experience on our project with Countywide has been very positive. The team members are responsive, fair, motivated, and approach each and every day with integrity. We look forward to working on more projects with Countywide, and all others associated with the MMC Corp family.
