Sweetwater Hospital Emergency Room Addition
In 2003, we began construction of a three-story cast-in-place concrete addition that added approximately 36,000 square feet to the hospital campus. The existing building had to be supported through the installation of micropiles, and the existing foundation had to be undercut and re-supported in order to accommodate the new structure. Soil pinning also had to be completed to support the existing parking area during construction.
Since our construction site was immediately adjacent to the emergency room entrance, safety concerns were paramount and were successfully managed on this project with a focus being given to patient traffic and ambulance arrivals.
