Greenland was the Construction Manager responsible for constructing a new boiler plant at the Wilkes-Barre VA Medical Center in Wilkes-Barre, PA.

A complete replacement of the 2,000 amp electrical switchgear was also included. A building addition to the existing boiler plant was added along with a new control room and plant offices.
