Richardson, TX (PRWEB) June 20, 2014
On Friday, June 20, Adolfson & Peterson Construction celebrated the ‘topping out’ of the new $90 million Forest Park Medical Center in Austin, TX. Adolfson & Peterson Construction is serving as the general contractor for the new state-of-the art hospital, which is being developed by Neal Richards Group.
The topping out ceremony officially commemorates reaching the final height of the new building, which is marked at 64 ft. As part of the celebration, Brian Jarrett, Director with Neal Richards Group, smoked 190 pounds of brisket and pork shoulder, providing a barbeque lunch for the 250 employees on-site.
Designed by Page, the 145,000-square-foot, four-story hospital will feature 46 private inpatient rooms, including 12 family suites, six intensive care rooms and 10 fully integrated operating suites. Also part of the development is an 80,000-square-foot medical office building and an 181,000-square-foot garage.
“Adolfson & Peterson is proud to partner with Neal Richards Group and Forest Park Medical Center on this important project,” said Corbett Nichter, Senior Vice President for Adolfson & Peterson Construction. “This is our sixth project with Neal Richards Group and Forest Park Medical Center and, once again, the level of collaboration and commitment has been exceptional, allowing A&P to stay ahead of schedule and on budget.”
This project is being built on an 8.5 acre site inside of a 59-acre master campus located near state highway 45 and La Frontera Boulevard in Williamson County.
“We are excited to continue our partnership with Adolfson & Peterson and Neal Richards Group with the expansion of the Forest Park system to Austin,” said Dr. Robert Wyatt, founding physician and managing partner. “As a physician majority-owned and governed hospital, we look forward to bringing the latest and most effective technology in medical care to the Austin community where we can also provide outstanding, cost-effective care to patients.”
Construction began in the 4th quarter of 2013 with completion scheduled for 1st quarter 2015.
