LANCASTER, CA-Barnhart-Heery of San Diego and the California Department of Veterans Affairs have completed a 46,620-square-foot project called the William J. “Pete” Knight Veterans Home on a 30-acre site that was donated by the City of Lancaster to provide room for further potential expansion. The $22.2 million project was built to Green Guide to Health Care standards, which is equivalent to a LEED-certified building.

The home will provide California’s disabled and aging veterans with rehabilitative, residential and medical care services and is named after the late California state senator Pete Knight, a record-setting test pilot and combat veteran. The single-story, four-wing complex is composed of two residential wings with a total of 60 beds for full-time residents, a 50-person adult day health care wing, and a services and administration wing, all surrounding a central courtyard.

The new facility, at 45221 30th Street West, was developed by a Barnhart-Heery team that included Richard Bruce, executive vice president; Chris Haga, vice president; Dennis Kuykendall, senior project manager; and Richard Jackson, superintendent.

The Pete Knight Veterans’ Home is one of a number of new veterans’ homes under construction or completed by the California Department of Veterans Affairs, referred to collectively as the Veterans Homes of California. Besides the Lancaster facility, the others include the Veterans Home of California in Ventura and the Veterans Home of California in West Los Angeles.

In addition, the Department of General Services and the Department of Veterans Affairs recently said that Hensel Phelps Construction of San Jose and Costa Mesa-based Clark Design/Build of California have been selected to build two new veterans homes in Fresno and Redding beginning in April 2010.
