Troy Community Hospital
Owner: Guthrie Health
Contractor: Layton Construction Company
Contract Amount: $3,763,796
Lee Company provided mechanical and plumbing design and build services for the construction of this 55,000-square-foot hospital in rural Pennsylvania.
The construction method using insulating concrete forms (ICFs) provided only a small window to install underground plumbing. Because of time and cost constraints, we used coordinated drawings from a fully integrated building information model (BIM) to spool and fabricate the underground plumbing on-site. To stay out ahead of the framers, prefabricated plumbing cans were built and shipped to accelerate the in-wall rough-in required on 265 plumbing fixtures.
We installed a piped medical-gas system that includes oxygen, nitrous oxide, carbon dioxide, nitrogen, medical air and a medical vacuum with local alarm panels and isolation valves, as well as two master alarm panels.
We also installed 74,000 pounds of sheet metal, three Trane DX packaged rooftop units providing 215 tons of cooling, two 113-horsepower Bryan boilers and two dual-fuel water heaters for domestic hot water.
Our system of working—which Guthrie Health’s project manager called highly integrated from the start—allowed us to meet an extremely tight schedule while saving time, paperwork and money.
