NEW YORK – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New York District, has awarded an $8.9 million contract to Structural Associates a small business located in Syracuse, N.Y., for the construction of a Soldier Family Care Clinic at Fort Drum.

The 22,500 square foot clinic will be designed utilizing a method referred to as “Environment of Care.”  This method addresses the interplay between a facility’s architect, floor plan, interior finishes, and furniture to establish the best possible work and patient environments.


“This facility will be designed with the patient in mind and provide them much needed outpatient care and clinical and administrative space,” said New York District Commander Col. Paul E. Owen. “The Soldier Family Care Clinic will help ensure the Fort Drum military community - servicemen and women and their families receive the best health care available.”


As part of the contract, the facility must meet environmental requirements to be certified as at least LEED Silver by the U.S. Green Buildings Council standards


Construction on The Soldier Family Care Clinic will take two years and the facility is slated to open in summer 2015.
