Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital is located in Vermont’s rural Northeast Kingdom. Originally built in the 1960’s, the hospital’s birthing center was in dire need of a complete overhaul.
Being in a small hospital with limited space, the birthing center work needed to occur above and alongside active care patient rooms. This required precise, coordinated activities for medical gas tie-ins and below-floor waste piping. The building also received a new central air handling unit that provides fresh air to multiple departments. Expectant mothers will be able to control room temperatures with wall mounted T-stats that connect to radiant ceiling panels and variable-air-volume boxes, while enjoying a private bathroom and beautiful views of the Green Mountains from their third floor rooms.
The project went smoothly, coming in on budget and on schedule. Patients and staff are extremely happy with their new digs!
