Demolition and new steel columns

This week was another heavy week of demolition on parts of the old Care Center and future remodeling areas for the existing hospital.  Crews are selectively placing new steel columns in the existing hospital where they will be remodeling in the future.  Rough in continues in the hospital patient wing addition and new kitchen.

Patient room mock up

We hit another major milestone of sort this past week as the team created a patient room head wall mock-up.  This allows nursing to have input on preferred locations for oxygen, outlets, light switches, vacuum suction, nurse calls, etc.  Other progress includes putting in plumbing in the new kitchen, in areas to be remodeled, the crews continue to partition off work areas where they remove a small portion of the existing floor, box out a new footing and install a new steel beam column for a new roof.  The Old 100 Wing is now officially tore down and crews are jack hammering out the old concrete slab. The siding crews have been removing and re-installing the new siding to make some adjustments to the insulation behind the siding.

Saying good bye to the Old 100 Wing

Last week the construction crews began demolition of the Old 100 Wing of the Care Center. The staff reminisced about all the wonderful years of working in the Old 100 Wing; many recounting having worked most of their career there.  Meanwhile, progress continues on the new hospital addition as crews continue to frame up and rough in for the future patient rooms, the “blue” exterior showed up again as crews applied to the walls of the new addition.

Cornerstone, cleaning, spa, sidewalks and new furniture

Crews continue to finish the Care Center spaces as they are putting in the tile in the new spa area.  Furniture for the resident rooms has arrived and is being placed in the rooms.  The crews are finishing the resident’s dining and living room areas.  Demo crews are starting to take out walls in the admin area.  The construction crews have taken out the cornerstone of the existing building during demo to save in a time capsule.  New sidewalks were poured for the Care Center additions. Boldt laborer, Jason was putting on some finishing touches by cleaning the resident rooms, and yes even cleaning we make it safe by wearing hard hats!

More siding and structural steel

The crews are busy on the exterior of the Care Center additions putting up siding and erecting structural steel in front to the new entryway.  Inside the ceiling tiles are being installed, but if you notice in the below picture, quite a few are “custom cuts” to include light fixtures, sprinklers, smoke detectors, call lights, cameras and air vents.  In the mechanical mezzanine, one of the new air handlers is up and running, providing air to the new Care Center additions and existing Care Center.
