New England Real Estate JournalWorcester, MA Timberline Construction Corp has been working with the S/L/A/M Collaborative on several projects for UMass Memorial Medical Center.

The UMass. Medical Center provides a wide range of specialized health care services and includes three campuses in central Massachusetts: the University Campus, Memorial Campus and Hahnemann Campus. Timberline Construction’s team recently completed capital improvement assignments to the UMass Memorial campus, including a renovation to an existing radiology room for the operating healthcare facility. The project involved millwork, drywall, painting, and the installation of new GE radiology equipment. Additionally a loading dock area renovation and restoration was completed. Timberline then began another small project; fire protection and smoke barrier improvements are currently being made to the campus.

Most recently Timberline was selected as the general contractor for the Angio and C-Arm renovation at the hospital. This current project is valued at over a million and involves a two-room radiology renovation. The work is designed around the installations of advanced imaging equipment. Construction involves demolition efforts and a total renovation with new architectural finishes, as well as mechanical, electrical, and plumbing components.

This technical project involves trade coordination around the operating facility’s schedule. The work is divided into two-phases within the sensitive location; detailed attention is exercised to provide the necessary infection control measures to keep adjacent affected areas up and running during the construction. An installation of medical structural support systems will accommodate the new Philips imaging equipment and plumbing work includes new medical gas and vacuum services. The mechanical scope incorporates the installation of a new roof-top air handling unit. The new rooms will also receive electrical upgrades to the existing services to support the power requirements of the new Philips system. Life safety and fire protection upgrades will also be made to the space. The overall new architectural layout accommodates new lighting, lead lined walls, floor finishes, millwork, glass and doors.

Timberline is a newer company, 10 years strong, hiring the right industry talent, and motivated to prove their strengths while exceeding expectations. As Timberline enters the next 10 years, the company will continue to position and prepare towards continued growth in the healthcare sector.
