Kiewit-Turner and Subcontractors Hire Veterans

February 21, 2013

Kiewit-Turner and subcontractor LPR Construction as well as other subcontractors are working with Work Initiative Now (WIN) to hire unemployed and homeless veterans to help build the new Replacement Medical Center Facility, Eastern Colorado Health Care System for the Department of Veterans Affairs.

“The hands-on, paid training will allow these veterans to build skills that will employ them not only now, but also in the future,” said AJ Klebba, deputy managing partner of Kiewit-Turner.

 Over $74 million is currently contracted to service-disabled and veteran-owned businesses. With this, Kiewit-Turner is exceeding the 5 percent federally mandated participation goal – achieving over 18 percent subcontracted dollars to veteran and service-disabled veteran owned small businesses. 

“Hiring veterans to help build the new hospital is a personal commitment,” said Klebba. “A service-disabled veteran myself, I know the pride I feel in helping to build a healing center for our veterans. We applaud our nation’s heroes and are fortunate to help them transition into the civilian workforce.”

The new hospital campus will replace the Denver Medical Center for the Eastern Colorado Health Care System and is being constructed at the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, Colo. The 182-bed replacement medical center will include a 30-bed spinal cord injury center, a 30-bed community living center, a research building, a central utility plant and parking structures.
