McGrath also is renovating elevators at Barnes-Jewish Hospital. McGrath is the construction manager and general contractor for the design/build project.

At Alton Memorial Hospital, McGrath renovated four elevators and built a new elevator equipment room. Elevators are equipped with new geared-traction machines, controllers, elevator entrances, call buttons and lanterns.

McGrath also is renovating 13 elevators on the south campus of Barnes-Jewish Hospital. Renovations to the Central, East Pavilion and Rand-Johnson elevators include new cab interiors, controllers, entrances, hall buttons and lanterns. McGrath is installing new HVAC, electric and architectural elements in equipment rooms, and the existing geared traction drive machines are being refurbished. The Barnes-Jewish Hospital elevator project is scheduled for completion in late December 2017.

Elevator groups at both hospitals remain in service during the renovation project. McGrath follows strict safety protocol when working around elevator shafts, and implements isolation and infection prevention measures when working in occupied health care areas to ensure a clean and safe environment for patients, staff and visitors.

Kenneth H. Lemp Elevator Consultant, Inc. provided the elevator survey and scope of work. The architect is VERVE Design Studio.
