This project involved construction of a three-story addition to an existing hospital. The addition included new exam rooms, classrooms and educational areas, labor and delivery rooms, patient rooms, nursery rooms, pre/post-op rooms, and two new C-section operating rooms.

The floor-to-floor elevations of the addition had to meet those of the existing hospital, which required extensive design and coordination. Mechanical systems were carefully designed and installed above the ceilings to blend with overall aesthetics of the interior and as well as the design intent.

The project also included renovating 43,000 SF of various departments throughout the existing hospital. All work was performed while maintaining full operation of critical areas.
