Construction is under way on a $5.8 million renovation of the eighth floor of the Shoenberg Pavilion on the Barnes-Jewish Hospital north campus in St. Louis, Missouri.
The project is divided into four phases, each encompassing a portion of the nearly 23,000-square-foot space being renovated. The renovation will create a new 25-bed patient division while relocating an ICU to an alternate location within the eighth floor.
A new rooftop air handling unit also will be installed as part of the project, to meet the new air and ventilation requirements.
A significant challenge for this project will be keeping the ICU operational throughout all stages of construction. McGrath will be implementing strict contamination isolation and infectious prevention measures to ensure a safe work environment and clean air quality for staff and patients.
