West Palm VA Hospital

Project: West Palm VA Hospital, Linear Accelerator Wing

General Contractor: Phoenix Medical Construction

Description: This project consists of 35,000 SF addition to the West Palm VA Hospital. Some of the many things that made this project challenging was that it was a Mass Concrete Construction project with 3-6 feet thick reinforced concrete: foundations, slab, walls and roof that required the use of the heavy duty Logic crane set form system. The weight and density of the concrete were of major importance so there were multiple specially designed concrete mixes that required a tremendous collaboration between all parties: Engineers, ready mix provider and pump company. Concrete pours consisted of 1000 yard pours with the different mixes being poured at the same time in some cases and required the need for 3 boom pumps simultaneous. And once the pour was completed the entire structure would have to be completely blanketed in Burline material for curing purposes. In addition the building abuts the hospital and required the use of a mesh stay form in one of the 4 foot thick walls. And all material required "Made In the USA". Again another successful project that finished ahead of schedule and landed a very similar project for the Bay Pines VA Hospital.
