Remodeling Frederick Memorial Hospital without disrupting operations
The Frederick Memorial Hospital FMH-MFP project was 85% remodel and 15% new construction. This project spanned a two and a half year period.
The project required over 100,000 pounds of galvanized metal, stainless steel, and aluminum ductwork. This project also included 14 exhaust fans and 486 registers, grilles, and diffusers.
The areas of new construction consisted of a new emergency entrance, as well as a new ambulatory entrance.
The remodeled areas included constructing a new MRI room, an endoscopy wing, and renovations to patient rooms. Additionally, the entire imaging suite was remodeled along with 50% of the emergency department. This was accomplished while maintaining the spaces critical to operation for the hospital that were outside of the construction space.
Due to the complexity of the project, including ensuring and maintaining a fully operating medical facility, Kaempf and Harris worked intently with Gilbane and Leach Wallace, as well as the other trades. This cooperation was critical in keeping the necessary elements of the contract drawings, determining the sizing and routing of the ductwork, and assisting in locating services of other trades.
The remodel work required Kaempf and Harris to field measure and assemble the entire portion of the renovation project. Our foreman Greg McKinley, did an outstanding job assisting in the design, as was stated many times by the Gilbane team.
