UHC Ribbon Cutting
Marks-Landau Construction recently completed United Hospital Center’s Bruce Carter United Orthopaedic and Spine Center. The $15 million dollar project encompasses 57,000 SF and was completed in less than twelve months. Marks-Landau president Jeff Landau presented UHC CEO Michael Tillman with a customized plaque to commemorate the event at the ribbon cutting ceremony held on April 2nd.
The new Center combines the Orthopaedics, Neurosurgery, Pain Management, Spine Care, and Rehabilitation departments into one main building, which allows for better communication between departments and specialists. It also includes two hundred rooms and a therapy pool. United Hospital Center requested that the new building match the existing hospital facade, so careful attention to detail was required when selecting the brick. Mock-ups of the facade were fashioned and approved by the owners. The HVAC system was highly specialized, and a new program was written in order for it to operate successfully. Project Manager Jeremy Bowlby and Project Engineer Doug Brenneman worked closely with architects Gresham, Smith & Partners and UHC to complete a beautiful project under budget and on time. Recently, Marks-Landau was awarded additional work at UHC and will renovate the Physician’s Office Building fourth floor.
