Stalco served as general contractor for the phased expansion and renovation of the emergency department at Lincoln Medical and Mental Health Center Emergency Department, the busiest emergency room in New York City and the seventh busiest one in the nation, which treats 180,000 patients a year.
The new 8,000s/f entrance pavilion and a paved outdoor plaza provide an elegant walk-in entrance for patients, a private vehicle drop-off, and a separate area for ambulance traffic. The 100-foot long, 18-foot high entry pavilion features steel and glass glazing exterior, and an entrance canopy composed of Kawneer composite aluminum panels. The foundation includes 21 concrete piles and a grade slab. The new design provides greater efficiency, improved patient privacy, children's play area and adequate seating and bathrooms.
25,000s/f of renovations encompassed a trauma treatment room, nurse station, separate pediatric area, an adult trauma room and waiting area, radiology room, behavioral health section, examination rooms, triage rooms, and bathrooms. Stalco also created a separate behavioral health emergency section with separate entrances. The treatment areas are equipped with a specialized medical infrastructure, such as oxygen lines and lead lining in X-ray rooms.
The Stalco team implemented a complex logistical and staging plan that ensured an uninterrupted operation of the emergency room, which remained open during construction. Stalco isolated the areas under construction to prevent dust contamination by erecting temporary walls and dust barriers, and protecting the HVAC ductwork.
