This complete overhaul of the existing Nursery and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit was a landmark project for SMC for a number of reasons. First, the sheer size and complexity of this project made it one of SMC’s biggest jobs to date. Secondly, it proved that SMC was capable of working in and around one of the most delicate hospital atmospheres, the NICU. Lastly, the project involved almost every trade of construction ranging from structural and masonry to emergency power generators and medical gases. Please see the attached pictures from construction to completion.
Similar to the prior Cath Lab Renovation at the Hospital, the MRI project required heavy structural-steel and concrete reinforcements to the existing space on the 1st floor. After the foundational work was complete, the next 3 months on the project demanded extremely close coordination between SMC and the Hospital’s equipment vender - Siemens. The biggest challenge on this project, aside from fully constructing an MRI room, was placing the multi-ton magnet into the space with only a ½” tolerance for error.
This new catherization lab was built for retrofitted equipment which required very close coordination with the Owner's Equipment vendor - Philips Healthcare. The scope of work required additional structural steel to support the equipment from the ceiling and floor, resulting in concrete demolition and pour back inside the hospital. Furthermore, heavy coordination was implemented to complete the lead shielding, mechanical and electrical work inside our project schedule.
This project involved the renovation of office space into an extension of an existing Transplant Clinic. The space consists of 5,015 sf of business space including nine (9) exam rooms, blood draw, consult rooms, and a classroom along with associated office and support spaces.
This project consisted of repair work for an existing facility due to damages caused by Hurricane Isaac.
This project consisted of renovating an existing unoccupied Psychiatric Unit back to it's previous function as a Medical/Surgical Nursing Unit. The interior core rooms of the Unit and some former patient rooms were reconfigured to provide support spaces for patients and staff. Some of the existing patient rooms were reconfigured to better serve handicapped patients. For the spaces to function properly most of the electrical services, plumbing fixtures, mechanical systems and finishes were renovated throughout.
This project consisted of the partial renovation of the 6th and 8th floors of the hospital from recently occupied space into additional Medical/Surgical patient rooms for the hospital. One side of the 6th floor North Wing was renovated into specially equipped Observation Rooms.
