Program: New construction of a 3-story hospital facility which includes: 5 operation rooms, 23 intensive care unit patient rooms, nurse’s stations, waiting area, bathrooms, storage areas, sterile areas and a loading dock. Description: As lead building inspector and part of the team of 504 Construction Managers, Inc., a full-service inspection and management were provided to the Hospital. The services provided included weekly CPM Scheduling, daily safety inspections. The design consisted of state-of-the-art facilities and innovative construction details and specifications. A ‘floating’ concrete slab was designed and built for the operating rooms in order to separate and isolate any possible vibrations from the buildings structure. The project’s infrastructure like for example, gas lines, water, power and data had to be connected to existing Hospital provisions without interruption of on-going activities.
