Centerplan Construction Company has completed several projects for William J. Backus Hospital in Norwich, Connecticut. Centerplan was asked to renovate a portion of a two-story office building into an off-site billing department facility for hospital. Although there were many hurdles at the start due to a shortened schedule and budget issues, Centerplan Construction was instrumental in developing different methods to not only deliver the space on time but also alternatives to help with the budget.
The Backus Hospital Labor, Delivery, Recovery, and Postpartum (LDRP) project was a revitalization of a task area for the delivery room staff. The LDRP project was a fast-paced, tight-budget project that was conducted in one of the most critical areas within the hospital, the main nurses' station in the delivery ward. With the ward open 24 hours a day and needing to maintain strict adherence to Indoor Environmental Quality standards, this proved to be a challenging work environment. Comprised of light demolition work, four added light fixtures, relocated outlets and data connections, new millwork countertops, and fresh flooring, this work was completed under negative air containment, during normal working hours, with virtually zero interruption or impact to the hospitalís operation and staff. Working symbiotically with Facilities Management, the Centerplan Construction team was able to bring this project in on time and within the GMP.
Centerplan Construction also completes a 2,000-square-foot reconfiguration of the existing administrative office of the Backus Hospital Patient Care Services Wing. Reconstruction of this environment took place under the hospitalís fast track program, with the work performed off hours under ICCRA standards. The project scope consisted of selective demolition, relocation of IT systems, electrical and low voltage systems modification, and a complete redesign of the architectural components. During the reconstruction, modifications to the existing Mechanical, Electrical and Fire Suppression Systems were also required. The project was completed on time with the owner occupying the space by the end of the summer of 2012.
