DeMaria recently completed the Louis Stokes VA Medical Center project in Cleveland, OH. The project is an eight-story, 268,000 sf bed tower addition at the existing medical center.
The new addition included cast-in-place concrete construction of eight levels with a structural steel mechanical penthouse. The new bed tower includes 265 beds that will provide services for blind rehabilitation, spinal care injury, skilled rehab, hospice/palliative care and mental and behavior health, which includes acute psychiatric care.
The project scope includes new mechanical, plumbing, electrical, fire alarm, fire suppression, telephone/data, security, nurse call, medical gas, elevators, as well as medical and kitchen equipment. All new MEP systems had to be tied into the existing hospital during scheduled off hour shut downs.
The project also included renovation work within the existing facility. The renovation work required for this new addition occurs in multiple locations on each floor. Renovation work on each floor included demolition of existing rooms to provide new corridors, updated architectural finish work, as well as MEP tie-ins and connections.
