MILFORD, Del.- Bayhealth has selected Whiting-Turner Contracting Company of Newark for construction management of its $250 million health campus project along Route 1 in Milford.
As the construction managers, Whiting-Turner will oversee construction and collaborate with the project team on this 165-acre project, which is scheduled to open in 2018. Bayhealth said Whiting-Turner will ensure the work complies with contract provisions, state and local regulations, and project specifications. Whiting-Turner joins CannonDesign and Bayhealth for this project.
Bayhealth said it and Whiting-Turner have a longstanding, successful working relationship. Most recently, Whiting-Turner managed the construction of the new third floor Progressive Care Unit at Kent General. Whiting-Turner also provided construction oversight of Kent General's integrated cancer center, pavilion, parking garage, and emergency department, which opened in 2011.
Bayhealth President and Chief Executive Officer Terry Murphy said he pleased with the progress that has been made since the health campus project was announced in late November 2014.
Whiting-Turner will oversee dozens of subcontractor firms and more than 1,300 construction workers over the two-year construction schedule, Bayhealth said.
Bayhealth said its new health campus will include an inpatient hospital and emergency department. It will also include an array of outpatient services such as primary care and specialist physicians as well as diagnostic services.
