Worcester, MA - Timberline Construction Corp has been working with the S/L/A/M Collaborative on several projects for UMass Memorial Medical Center. The UMass Medical Center provides a range of specialized health care services within three central Massachusetts campuses: the Memorial Campus, University Campus, and Hahnemann Campus.The Timberline team, lead by Institutional construction professional Christopher Carucci as Senior Project Manager, previously completed capital improvements to the UMass Memorial campus, including a renovation to an existing radiology room for the operating healthcare facility. The project involved millwork, drywall, painting, and the installation of new GE radiology equipment. A loading dock area renovation was also completed, along with campus fire protection and smoke barrier improvements.
Most recently Timberline served as the general contractor for the Angio and C-Arm renovations at the hospital. For this project Carucci and Superintendent Matthew Bussiere returned to the campus for a $1.1 million project involving a two-room radiology renovation with a control room, and two nurse stations. The work is designed around the installations of high-tech imaging equipment. Construction involved demolition efforts and a total renovation with new architectural finishes, as well as mechanical, electrical, and plumbing components.
The work was divided into two-phases within the sensitive location and involved tight trade coordination around the operating facility’s schedule. For this technical project, detailed attention was exercised to provide the necessary infection control measures to keep adjacent affected areas up and running during the construction. The installation of medical structural support systems, now accommodate new Philips imaging equipment; plumbing work includes new medical gas and vacuum services. The mechanical scope incorporates the installation of a new roof-top air handling unit. The new rooms also received electrical upgrades to the existing services to support the power requirements of the new Philips system. Life safety and fire protection upgrades were also be made to the space. The overall new architectural layout accommodates new lighting, lead lined walls, floor finishes, millwork, glass and doors.
