AUSTIN, Texas—Brasfield & Gorrie recently celebrated the topping out of HCA St. David’s North Austin Women’s Services expansion and renovation. The topping out ceremony celebrates the completion of the building’s structure and is an opportunity to thank those involved in the construction.
“We’re grateful for our ongoing relationship with HCA Healthcare and excited to expand our presence in Texas,” said Brasfield & Gorrie Vice President and Division Manager Chris Wall. “Healthcare facilities have a direct effect on the areas they serve, and we are honored to play a role in building this strong community.”
The four-story, 166,369-square-foot vertical expansion will add to the Women’s Center four Caesarean section operating rooms, 36 labor/delivery/recovery/postpartum rooms, 59 postpartum rooms, and 24 antepartum rooms. Following the vertical expansion’s completion, Brasfield & Gorrie will renovate 28,325 square feet of interior space, adding 30 neonatal critical care unit beds, 36 neonatal intensive care unit beds, and four postpartum rooms. Brasfield & Gorrie is also working on a one-story, 21,214-square-foot vertical expansion at HCA St. David’s North Austin Medical Center. That project will add 32 medical surgery patient rooms. The general contractor is including prefabricated exterior wall panels and bathroom pods on that addition.
Brasfield & Gorrie’s past work for HCA Healthcare includes Medical City Dallas renovation and Medical City Dallas Women’s Hospital, as well as projects in Florida, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. Brasfield & Gorrie has worked in Texas for more than 20 years and established its first office in the state in 2011.
