The Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Construction & Facilities Management on September 20, 2013, awarded a 20 year lease contract to Graham & Company, LLC for a 50,500 net usable square feet Primary Care Annex (PCA) and 2,334 parking spaces. The new PCA will relocate some primary care services from the Birmingham VA Medical Center and will help decompress the campus. Additionally, the parking spaces will replace several parking leases throughout Birmingham and provide a centralized parking location for Veterans, visitors, and staff members. The location of the site will be at the 2400 block of University Boulevard. Construction is scheduled to begin next week, with an expected completion date of September 2015. The medical center will be planning a ground breaking ceremony in the upcoming weeks.
