The tower is cast-in-place concrete placed atop an existing eight-story parking garage. Approximately half of the facility’s interior was built out with the remaining space serves as warm shell space for future build-out. The team also completed mechanical and electrical upgrades to the energy center to support these areas with emergency power capabilities and redundancies.

Constructed in the heart of a busy hospital campus, the team focused on safety and communication, ensuring the project completed safely while minimizing the effects on staff and patrons.
