← Back to the Portfolio
  • 14,000 GSF multi-phased, multi-Service Renovation Project.
  • Located on 7th floor of a 9-story, 57-year old Historic Hospital building.
  • Infection Control was of high concern for the ENT (Otolaryngology) trauma Patients who will occupy this nursing unit.
  • This 4-wing nursing unit had experienced little change from its original construction. Existing Clay tile partitions are prevalent throughout the unit.
  • Nursing units above and below the 7th floor will remain occupied during construction.
  • All construction materials and personnel will enter the building via a multi-story scaffold/stair/lift.
  • Major goals of the project were: Replace HVAC system; provide code-required support spaces; replace/relocate central Nurse Station; provide 20-private Patient Rooms; maintain existing functional Rooms; Replace Architectural finishes and provide additional Staff support spaces if possible.
  • Additional objectives included: provide an isolated wing for highest acuity Patients; convert all bathtubs to showers; upgrade all support spaces to current codes; provide patient family centered care considerations in all aspects of design. Additionally, all plumbing and electrical systems to be upgraded or replaced.
