DALLAS — Brasfield & Gorrie, a construction management firm with offices in Dallas, is currently working on two major Texas medical facilities: Medical City Hospital in Dallas and Kingwood Medical South Tower in Kingwood.
The firm was recently awarded the vertical expansion and renovation of Medical City Hospital. The project is expected to begin in October and will include a 160,307-square-foot, four-story expansion above the existing emergency department and ambulance drop-off. It will also feature a 68,576-square-foot, phased interior renovation of several campus departments, including surgery, medical oncology, surgical oncology, stem ell and the emergency department/cardio diagnostic unit. This will be the fifth — and largest — renovation project that Brasfield & Gorrie has completed for the facility. Perkins + Will, with offices in Dallas, is serving as the project’s architect of record.
On May 31, the firm also celebrated the official topping out of the South Tower addition at Kingwood Medical Center. The 152,000-square-foot project, which began in October 2012 and is slated for completion in October 2014, includes a three-story addition and renovations of the existing hospital.
The first floor of the addition will feature 12 labor, delivery and recovery rooms, eight high-risk antepartum beds, 24 neonatal intensive care beds, two C-section operating rooms and a four-bed obstetric triage suite. The second floor will include 36 postpartum beds and 32 well-baby nursery beds. On the third floor, there will be shell space for future pediatric and medical or surgical beds. Also part of the project is the new central energy plant. Nashville, Tenn.-based Gould Turner Group is the architect on the expansion.
During construction of the addition, Brasfield & Gorrie is also working on several renovations of the existing hospital, including ones to administrative, admissions and kitchen and dining areas. Parking will also be added to the southeast and northwest corners of the campus.
