It was a great week at the Smithfield Hospital ICU addition. Approximately 175 tradeworkers were on site this week and we expect that to go up in the coming weeks. Here are a few highlights from the week.

  • the formwork at the 3rd floor west half of the building was completed
  • reinforcing was installed in the 3rd floor west half
  • shoring was installed at the first floor to allow the upper concrete floors to be installed
  • steel studs were being installed at the perimeter of the first floor
  • electricians were setting main electrical gear in the lower level electrical utility room
  • sitework continues with stormwater piping being installed in the west and south parking lots
  • additionally, the storm detention basin east of the building is being constructed

It is going to be a busy few weeks on the project. Winter is coming! Our team is pushing hard to complete sitework. Here is what you can expect in the weeks ahead.

  • next week, both halves of the 3rd floor will be poured
  • we will then move to the roof structure — anticipate that will be poured by mid-October
  • exterior enclosure will continue for the next 6–8 weeks and we anticipate it being substantially complete in early December
  • rough-ins for mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire sprinklers will begin on the 1st floor in early October
  • interior steel stud framing will begin in mid to late October
  • the west driveway out to Highway 72 is anticipated to open to full traffic by November 15th
