This project consists of an 11,520 SF addition to Minden Medical Center. An entirely new fifth floor was added to the existing hospital to house the expanded Intensive Care Unit (ICU). The ICU follows the linear footprint of the existing patient tower below, while maintaining a functional and efficient layout. Also included in the project was the addition of two elevators to serve the new ICU. The elevator addition was quite challenging as it required connecting multiple sections of the hospital that were built at different times with different construction types and with different floor-to-floor heights. The new elevator lobbies at each level serve as transition points between the old and new areas of the hospital. All areas of work were completed in one phase, and the hospital remained fully operational throughout construction.
