LSU Health Sciences Center University Hospital Renovations
This post-Hurricane Katrina project reconfigured an existing 10-story, 150,000 SF building into an Emergency Public and Teaching Hospital and Level 1 Trauma Center. This critical healthcare project included the renovation of a state-of-the-art Emergency Department, On-Call Area, Surgical Intensive Care Units, and Laboratory. The work also included the installation of a roof-based heliport as well as the installation of crucial medical gases and sophisticated medical equipment within a sterile environment.
Work included interior build-out of architectural, mechanical, and electrical facilities as well as plumbing for the flooded basement and mold-ridden upper floors. Damaged interior finishes were replaced on the first eight floors as well as new roof installations on the ninth level and penthouse. The powerhouse also received attention, including mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and air conditioning.
