The team used evidence-based design to create a quieter facility, which is linked to better health outcomes. In order to reduce noise from air handling systems into the patient spaces, the project incorporated high-density structural concrete under the air handling units that not only absorbs and reflects noise; it also reduces vibration transmission from air handling equipment into the structure and the patient space.
Sundt provided preconstruction and construction services for a new one-story, 54,000-square-foot inpatient rehabilitation facility supporting 50 private patient rooms and physical, occupational and speech therapies. The facility provides rehabilitation care for stroke, hip fracture, cardiac and other complex medical conditions. It was designed to accommodate a future 17,000-square-foot vertical expansion for 25 patient beds.
