GVMH Construction Update

It’s been a while since I’ve provided a construction update so here goes…

If you’ve driven by the hospital lately you’ve probably noticed that the exterior is really coming together what you can’t see is all the work occurring on the inside.

Let’s start with the exterior.  Brick work is complete, windows are in and a large portion of the parking lot is complete, which you can see from the picture above.  A portion of the parking lot and the sidewalks had to be left out to accommodate construction equipment, that work will occur closer to time the new space opens.

What you can’t see is what’s happening on the inside.  The interior is really coming together.  In the picture above you’ll notice framing is complete and dry wall is up.  In some areas painting has started and ceiling grid is going in.

The project is progressing as anticipated and we are on-track to occupy new space as early as mid-March 2016.

Here’s some interesting trivia.  The new generator that was placed to power the new space in the event of a power outage weighs 71,000 pounds.  There are over twelve and a half miles of pipe in the new expansion and that pipe does not include conduit.

Here’s a rendering of the expansion once complete.
