Scope Of Work

Construction Manager at Risk - Construction of a four-story, 50,300 square foot NICU addition attached to the east elevation of Memorial Regional Hospital. The work is to be completed in three phases:

Phase One:Shell space for future remodeling on the first floor, twenty (20) new NICU beds on the second floor, office space on the third floor, and a Mechanical penthouse on the fourth floor.

Unique challenges for the NICU project: Building a four-story structure adjacent to an active roadway with powerlines located within 30 feet of the jobsite. All work, material lifts and crane (erection, operation and dismantle) had to be taken into consideration while keeping the roadway active. Building a four-story structure that abutted to three (3) existing buildings one on each elevation except for the east elevation. This restricted the Balfour Beatty use of only the east elevation to construct the building and use as a lay-down area.
