Memorial 7th Floor East

Memorial Hospital of South Bend contacted Creative Design Solutions in June of 2012 to design and coordinate the renovation of the 1956 patient bed tower. 

The project involved replacing and upgrading all systems for the Patient Tower including Mechanical, Plumbing, Electrical, Fire Sprinkler, Medical Gases, and Nurse Call systems.  Additionally, the seventh floor was completely gutted to allow for a new patient unit to be built.  The completed floor serves as the model for all future floor renovations. Memorial plans on remodeling one floor per year.

In order to accommodate the new mechanical systems for the Patient Tower, the penthouse was also expanded.  To coordinate with the new systems new chases were added at every floor  and  a number of new electrical service rooms have been provided in the basement.  

Creative Design Solutions is providing comprehensive Construction Administration Service including site observation, responses to all RFI’s/ASI’s etc.
