Medical Services Building Project Update

A Look Inside

 

Project construction this spring and early summer focused on the interior of the building. Recent construction activities include defining and finishing the interior spaces and completing mechanical and electrical system installation for all clinical and public spaces on the main level.

 

Activities that are nearly complete include drywall finishes and the ceiling support grid in the gastroenrology procedure suites, operating rooms, patient care rooms, outpatient lab, main entry, and public spaces. The next stage of interior finishes will include painting and installation of casework and flooring. The start-up and testing of the mechanical systems begins August 10. Space and construction planning has started for the medical offices on the second floor.

Building Exterior

Activity is ramping up on the outside of the building with the arrival of exterior siding and window glazing materials. The exterior of the building will be finished by late August.

Site Development

An enclosed corridor will link the medical services building with the main hospital and provide a protected environment to transport patients. The concrete foundation for the corridor has been poured. Framing steel for the connector structure has arrived and will be installed by the end of July.

Trees, shrubs, grasses and landscape materials have been planted along the new roadway perimeter and in the bio swales that will catch rainwater and storm runoff. Grasses are planted on the dirt berms that dot the landscape along with temporary irrigation to keep them going during the summer months. These mounds will be transformed to reflect the landscape theme inspired by the slopes and grass meadows of Mt. Hood.
