University of Kentucky Patient Tower Core & Shell Package

MMC Contractors along with our Joint Venture Partner, Thomas J. Dyer Company provided plumbing, piping, HVAC and Medical Gas 3D coordination and installation for the Core & Shell Package of this 12-story, 1.2 million square foot hospital on the University of Kentucky - Lexington campus.

Upon completion, this state-of-the-art teaching hospital included spacious individual patient rooms that will have the ability to convert from regular patient rooms to individualized Intensive Care Patient Rooms.

Challenges during this project included a very tight urban college campus setting that also had another on-going major construction project at the same site: the University of Kentucky College of Pharmacy building. However, the MMC Contractors/Dyer Company joint venture was working on that project as well. The College of Pharmacy project was completed prior to the completion of the Patient Tower project, thus allowing re-deployment of people and equipment resources.

Much of the plumbing, piping and sheet metal fabrication for the both projects was fabricated in nearby shop space and delivered as needed to each project.
