LeChase is planning projects at two western Connecticut locations of the Nuvance Health system. The scope includes renovating behavioral health offices in Norwalk and refitting space for new food service machinery in Danbury Hospital.
The Norwalk project will rehab the entire 15,000-SF second floor of a medical office building to create a new suite of offices. In Danbury, LeChase will refit an area of the food service department for a new automated cart-washing system.
Construction should begin this month in Danbury and in June on the Norwalk renovation. The projects are scheduled to be completed by October.
Both projects will use equipment and safety practices from the Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) Training Center in LeChase’s New York Metro office in Armonk, N.Y. At the center, teams learn how to block off a construction area using temporary barriers designed to look like permanent walls. They also use HEPA-filtered vacuums to minimize noise, dust and disruption in adjacent areas.
The work will entail close collaboration with Nuvance officials, particularly in Danbury, where the project is in the center of the hospital’s sterile storage area.
“As a leader in renovations within hospitals and health centers, we are committed to maintaining the highest levels of cleanliness and to enabling health care operations to continue safely and without disturbance during construction,” said David Campbell, LeChase vice president. “We have vast experience in efficiently delivering these types of projects, and look forward to helping Nuvance continue to enhance its services in Western Connecticut.”
