Memorial Hospital West – Bed Expansion Project
- Project Size: 71,000 GSF
- Completion Date: November 2011
- Delivery Method: CM/GMP
- Project Manager: Peter Kurszewski
- Superintendent: John Hughes
Scope of Work
This project is the new construction of a 80 bed patient tower connecting to the existing hospital at Memorial Hospital West. The fourth floor are standard patient rooms and the third floor consists of a forty bed bone marrow transplant unit. This unit includes an oncology pharmacy, chemo hood, ante room, two isolation rooms, 99.9 hepa filters at each patient room, ICU headwalls at each patient bed, scrubbable acoustic ceiling tile with a gasket grid, epoxy paint on the walls, air tight partitions and patient view windows at all patient rooms.
This project was challenging since it was a horizontal expansion to an existing bed tower that required rerouting of access and keeping the lobby open during construction.
This Bed Expansion Project was built with the exactitude and prospect of future LEED Certification. The design required compliance with sustainable and construction procedures.
