While Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Naval Support Activity Bethesda [NSAB] is undergoing demolition and construction, patient care will still be the priority.
To provide for the patient during this time of transition, out of what is now the G-Lot parking area will come a temporary hospital structure.
“We are adding a second temporary structure similar to the Dosimetry building [84T] that is already there now,” said Bryan Larkin, Naval Facilities Engineering Command construction manager for the project. “This is going to be much larger, an L-shaped, two-story structure and all modular.”
 
When construction begins at the medical center, the new structure will be utilized in two stages of personnel and departments.
 
“It is going to be a swing space, so as [medical center construction] comes into action, multiple areas of the hospital will be able to move in and out of the structure of G-Lot in two phases,” said Larkin.
 
The shipping and construction of the structure will continue throughout the rest of 2017, said Larkin.
 
“The building will be made up of modules, each 60 ft. by 11 ft., and are being custom-manufactured at a plant in Pennsylvania,” said Larkin. “They will truck them down, install them and route the utilities.”
 
Minimal traffic impact is expected, said Larkin.
