Hospital addition, entryway and kitchen progress

A lot of activity in the heart of the campus; entryway, kitchen and hospital addition.  In the entryway and kitchen area, crews are putting up the roof decking with roofers to follow this week.  Plumbing is now going into the kitchen.  In the hospital wing addition they are putting up the metal stud walls and roughing in the plumbing fro the patient rooms.

Final clean in the new Care Center additions and entryway, hospital addition progress

The Care Center staff was doing their final housekeeping clean-up on the two new Care Center additions in preparations for the residents to move in. On the front entry and new kitchen area, crews are setting roofing and installing metal studs to partition off the future areas. Out back on the hospital addition, the structural steel has been set, roof decking is going up and the concrete slabs have been poured.

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!

Happy Memorial Day !

As we get closer to real summer weather, the crews are making solid progress to finish the Care Center additions.  Outside you’ll notice the structural steel going up in the kitchen/entry way area, more siding going up on the Care Center additions and the concrete foundations are in for the hospital addition in the back.

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.

We have siding !

It’s not much yet, but a small sampling of siding was installed this past week and gives a glimpse into what the new exterior will look like.  The concrete crews were busy pouring the footings for the hospital addition and the ironworkers have been setting steel for the new entryway.  Crews continue to put in ceiling tiles in the hallways and resident rooms, the resident’s bathroom’s got their mirrors, and the mezzanine now has its’ permanent lighting. It’s always amazing to see how much low voltage cabling goes into a healthcare facility; nurse call, computers, media, fire alarms, wonder guards, etc.

Outside, the new kitchen/dining area and new entry area are taking shape as the footings and foundations have been poured.  Inside the Care center additions, the rooms now have sinks.  Progress continues inside the mezzanine; new shiny ductwork is being installed to make sure the building stays comfortable.
