For more than 90 years, P. Agnes Inc. has strived to provide the best possible general contracting and construction management services to its clients throughout the Delaware Valley. For more than 150 years, Lankenau Medical Center has cared for and treated residents of suburban Philadelphia with advanced healthcare services. When two organizations with such long histories of excellence come together on a single project, it goes without saying that such a project would be among the best in the region. That is what P. Agnes and Lankenau Medical Center are counting on with the construction of the hospital’s new Patient Pavilion.

Healthcare is constantly evolving, and as the treatments and methodologies change, healthcare facilities must change, as well. This can be one of the biggest challenges facing any healthcare organization, as it struggles to balance the resources available to it with the need to modernize its operations to provide the most effective care. John Sealy Hospital in Galveston, Texas, is one of those facilities keeping up with the times as it engages in a modernization project aimed at allowing it to offer more family centered patient care.

There’s no question that renovation and expansion work in an active healthcare environment is one of the most challenging types of construction. There’s also no question that the extensive experience of Integrated Facilities Solutions (IFS) Inc. makes it one of the preferred program management firms in the Chicago area for projects of this nature. The company’s recent work on a $100 million campus improvement plan for NorthShore University HealthSystem’s Skokie Hospital in Skokie, Ill., is proof of that. IFS President and founder Tim Vander Molen says the extensive infrastructure project with its daily challenges is relatively routine for IFS due to its experience and up-front planning.

The Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation (CCT) are implementing salmon and steelhead enhancement projects to mitigate the effects of hydropower development on fish populations in the Okanogan and Columbia rivers of Washington. The projects will provide wide-ranging ecological, social and economic benefits within those river basins.

For GTF JV, a joint venture of Granite Construction Northeast, Traylor Bros. and Frontier Kemper, the East Side Access project for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority Capital Construction Company (MTA CCC) is much more than just a normal railroad project. “The overall program has been [in] design for more than 40 years,” Project Executive Stephen Price declares.

With a recently opened office in Houston, Seattle-based Global Diving & Salvage Inc. is steadily covering more ground – or water, that is. Its founders began the company in 1979 and grew it to be a reputable diving contractor in the Pacific Northwest. However, at the turn of the century, the company began to look north, south, and east for new possibilities.

Now embarking on the most significant modernization project in its more than 80-year history, the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport is not only placing itself in a position to meet the ever-changing demands of passengers, but also to improve security throughout the facility. The $201.6 million modernization project is intended to not only increase passenger convenience and efficiency, but also encourage airlines to add new, non-stop flights.

Sometimes, the final touch that can help distinguish a structure is the last coat of paint. That addition of color can make it far more memorable, or even help restore an aged structure to its original glory. And that is what Abhe & Svoboda Inc. strives to do in its work.
