Construction Manager:


This project was a finish-out of the ADA compliant 5th floor west wing and included new linoleum flooring, Acrovyn wall protection, updated med-gas connections, as well as Zero VOC paint throughout.

State of the art technology used in all aspects of construction. We used Starc Wall Systems to contain the construction site from exposing any dust and air particles into the air inside an active hospital. Infection control and prevention measures were paramount every day, we used air scrubbers and negative air machines to mitigate risk. With that, we installed insulated ducted returns in the entire wing.

In each room, we installed state of the art Hillrom Nurse Call Systems and Curbell Medical Products were used for pillow speakers, new sheetrock ceilings to accompany new structural steel supports for medical lights and Human Care Patient Lifts. Dedicated exhaust and monolithic ceilings were installed in isolation rooms, along with room pressure monitors that are tied into the hospital’s building management system that sends readings showing the current air pressure level. Additionally, Swanstone solid surfaces were used for shower surrounds. Nurses’ stations included new custom millwork, updated Swisslog system, new GE Healthcare Patient Monitoring Systems and new integral blind systems.
