project at a glance

Fort Irwin Replacement Hospital replaces Weed Army Community Hospital, and marks a significant milestone in the United States Department of Defense commitment to delivering world-class healthcare to all service members and their families.

Situated in the Mojave Desert, the project is the first of its kind, combining LEED Platinum requirements along with a Net Zero energy consumption and a Net Zero carbon foot print. Designed by a joint venture of AECOM/RLF Architects and managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, this project, initially contracted in 2012, includes a 2.0Ms solar field, a 550,000 gallon water storage tank, underground sewage storage capacity of 475,000 gallons, and 50,000 gallons of diesel fuel storage which allows the facility to continue to operate for more than two weeks should all utility services be severed to the Army base.

It will be the first healthcare facility in the Department of Defense to achieve LEED Platinum status.
