in Companies/Homepage Primary/News

McGrath & Associates has begun work on elevator and mechanical upgrades at Christian Hospital in north St. Louis County. The projects include two elevator upgrades, a new air handling unit and electrical distribution upgrades. McGrath is the design/build contractor for the elevators and is providing value engineering, preconstruction and construction services on the other projects.

Construction is underway on two original traction elevators that McGrath is modernizing in the five-story Paul F. Detrick Building. McGrath will sequence construction so that one elevator remains in operation at all times. McGrath follows strict safety protocol when working around elevator shafts, and implements isolation and infection prevention measures in occupied health care areas to ensure a clean and safe environment for patients, staff and visitors. The design/build elevator project is scheduled for completion in August 2018.

The air handling and electrical distribution upgrades currently are in pre-construction, with construction expected to begin in August 2018. McGrath will replace the air handling unit serving the Christian Hospital operating room suite with a more energy-efficient, higher capacity unit. The existing air handler will be removed from the mechanical room and a new unit will be installed on the exterior of the building. The architect for the air handling unit project is Lawrence Group and the engineer is McClure Engineering.

Moving the air handling unit will provide space in the mechanical room for new electrical switchgear for the electrical distribution upgrades project. The engineer for the electrical upgrades is Heideman Associates.

McGrath & Associates completes renovation of the Missouri Baptist Medical Center Heart Center

in Companies/News

McGrath & Associates has completed a renovation of the Missouri Baptist Medical Center Heart Center in St. Louis.  McGrath served as construction manager. The architect was Christner.

The renovation and relocation project involved several spaces on the Missouri Baptist campus totaling approximately 16,000 square feet – two physician office suites, a PET/CT imaging room, and an outpatient testing area. Located in multiple buildings and areas of the hospital complex, the projects were carefully phased and several were constructed simultaneously to ensure completion within an accelerated six-month timeline.

McGrath completely renovated a doctors’ office suite in a medical office building on campus, upgrading the physicians’ offices, four exam rooms, a reception/waiting area and a workroom. McGrath also built a new PET/CT imaging room, which was moved to accommodate the renovation and relocation of cardiothoracic and vascular surgeon office space. The imaging project involved installation of extensive lead shielding for radiation safety prior to relocating the PET/CT equipment. The renovation also included construction to support outpatient cardiac testing.

Because the renovation took place in occupied health care areas, McGrath implemented strict isolation and infection prevention measures to ensure a clean and safe environment for patients and staff.

McGrath & Associates is a 100 percent employee-owned general contractor and construction management firm specializing in commercial, health care, industrial, institutional and pharmaceutical construction projects since 1983.
