Kiewit-Turner has filed a federal complaint seeking to quit working as lead contractor for a Department of Veterans Affairs hospital in Aurora, Colo. -- originally estimated to cost $604 million -- citing concerns over cost overruns and a resulting loss of revenue. At issue are "bungled designs and mismanagement" from the VA, according to the company. Because the VA chose to "build a complex of different buildings rather than a simpler hospital tower," the cost of finishing the project will top $1 billion.
