Archstone Builders working with Tetra Tech, Cosentini Associates, JBA, and the Army Corps of Engineers converted a 100K SF under-used section of the East Orange General Hospital into a fully functional 250 Bed Covid-19 Care Clinic. With only 13 days to complete the project, the Archstone team worked 24/7 in staggered shifts to complete the essential project by the established deadline on direct orders from the New Jersey Governor.
Archstone participated in briefings twice a day with the USACE Philadelphia District, New Jersey Office of Emergency Management, New Jersey Department of Health, University Hospitals, and East Orange General Hospital to identify hospital needs and review the integrated design and construction progress. Drawing on the team’s vast experience in building repositioning projects, they were able to expeditiously design and install necessary infrastructure including; new patient care rooms, water and sanitation system upgrades, emergency power and fire protection systems, and wireless communication networks.
Following the stringent health and safety guidelines onsite, Archstone Builders is happy to announce the project was completed without a single safety incident or participant contracting the virus.
