Description: When the $115 Million, 240,000 square-foot Levine Children’s Hospital opened its doors on Oct. 20, 2007, it became the largest children’s hospital between Atlanta and Washington, D.C. The hospital, located at Carolinas Medical Center, boasts 234 beds, a dedicated pediatric cardiac intensive-care unit and a 24-hour pediatric emergency department. Also notable are its family-centered amenities like a family dining room and a business center for working parents.
The other half of this project was a major expansion to the ICU of the main hospital, Carolinas Medical Center. The $52 million concrete construction project created 193,000 square feet and can be defined in two parts: a new 13-story tower (including two stories for mechanical equipment) built between an existing stair tower and an existing seven-story hospital building; and an over-build structure that added six stories (including two stories for mechanical equipment) to the existing seven-story hospital building. Eighty-seven new ICU rooms were added during this process. Robins & Morton self-performed 7.5% of the work on this part of the project.
This project has won an Alabama ABC Excellence in Construction – Merit Award
