Last week, Boldt’s Superintendent and foreman lead tours for the CCNSHCC staff and residents through parts of the new southwest Care Center addition to see the progress; a lot of final taping, mudding and sanding of the sheetrock. The staff was able to see a “pass-through” cabinet on the new rooms. The shiny new duct work in the mechanical mezzanine was uncovered.
We are now officially North Shore Health, as of April 1. Well to be official it is – Cook County Hospital District doing business as North Shore Health, but North Shore Health is much shorter! To celebrate the new logo and the new beginning, a group photo was taken to commemorate the moment near the building’s southeast addition.
Always a major milestone on projects; when the windows are installed. The recently installed windows on both the north and south Care Center additions add a nice touch to the building an give people a better grasp of what the final product will look like. Inside the electrical room the panel covers are installed. We’ve included some demolition / remodel pictures to portray what a challenge this part of the project can be. But don’t worry it will be transitioned to a nice, new area.
Boldt’s CCNSHCC Project Team Members including Superintendent – Mike Knudsen, Laborer – Jason Eilefson, Safety – Jay Block and from our Cloquet office Business Development Manager – Kirk Ilenda accepted the 2015 Minnesota LECET (Laborers-Employers Cooperation and Education Trust) Safety Driven Contractors Award for our safety accomplishments. Laborer, Jason Eilefson was one of seven Union Laborers from throughout the state to receive the 2015 Safety Driven Laborer Award for his personal commitment to safety.
The first day of spring has come and gone, but we’re still enjoying winter; snow and cold. The crews continue to hang sheetrock, put up metal studs, run duct work, grout the showers and hook up the electrical panels. According to our Superintendent, they’ll be receiving the windows this week and we’ll start taping the sheetrock. Good thing the windows are coming, because we hear the employees are drawing their own outside scenes on the future window openings.
The tiling crews have started putting the tile in the new resident showers. Crews are now installing the steel door frames in the new addition. Crews have focused a lot of work on the tie-in portions of the two additions.
Each week the exterior of the building moves towards taking its’ final shape. Inside the crews continue to frame in the interior walls and rough in plumbing and electrical for the future resident rooms in the Care Center additions.
It was brought to our attention that there has been much conversation about the “Room with a View” above the Care Center. In fact, the Boldt crane was on-site to lift some equipment into the new space. Drum roll….it was not in fact desks, but mechanical / hvac equipment for the new mechanical room. Inside the south Care Center addition, crews are putting up sheetrock. Holden/Agate Electric is busy hooking up the generators to the automatic switches and installing new switchboards and panels in the electrical room.
