Adding a 2,000 square-foot entrance, and renovating a 1929 hospital presented a number of unique challenges. The exterior of the hospital property saw a change as well, with a new main entrance coming off of North Avenue and a new facade on the existing structure using a thin brick TRESPA panel system.
The renovations consisted of mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and data/information technology systems. The first phase of the three-phase project called for renovation of the former kitchen and cafeteria space on the ground floor for relocation of highly utilized outpatient services including Cardiac Rehabilitation, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Speech/Language Pathology. The next two phases provided space for relocation of the Peppermint Parlor gift shop and snack bar to the ground floor, as well as renovations to the Emergency Department. Welliver self-performed the demolition, concrete, masonry, carpentry, door installs as well as all drywall and ceiling construction.
Project phasing and maintaining ASHE requirements were all challenges. Throughout the renovations, our team strategically worked around operations while keeping patients a safe distance from dust or contaminants in accordance with ICRA.
