St. Joseph’s Hospital Critical Care Tower Addition

St. Joseph's Hospital Construction Project in Lexington, Kentucky

Project Description

Wehr Constructors provided construction management services for a two-story addition to the emergency department building. The two new floors added 36,000 square feet of new ICU rooms and support services.

Project Unique Characteristics:

• The new floors were added over existing ICU patient rooms on the third floor that remained in operation during construction. Included in the scope of this project was the remodeling of the third floor. All utility connections for the new floors took place above the third floor ceilings.

• Renovation was phased one-half of a floor at a time, leaving the other half in operation, while ensuring that there was no intermingling of construction activity with the hospital functions.
