Construction on the new SSM St. Mary’s Hospital in Jefferson City has recently come to a completion, nearly 3 months ahead of schedule. Working with General Contractor, Alberici Constructors and partnering with local electrical contractor, Coastal Electric, the new regional hospital will deliver state-of-the-art, energy efficient healthcare to the mid-Missouri region. The new St. Mary’s Health Center uses evidenced-based design to create an environment that encourages healing, and increases safety and efficiency of care. According to Tim Gunn, Project Director for Alberici Constructors, "The Guarantee/Coastal team's experience, insights and efficient implementations, as well as their overall commitment to constructing one of the finest health care centers in the U.S. were major factors in allowing the hospital to be completed 3 months ahead of schedule."
The SSM St. Mary’s Hospital project reflects Guarantee Electrical Company’s commitment to delivering a turnkey, integrated project. On this project, the GECO/Coastal team made a particular commitment to engineering, constructability, LEAN construction methodology and a collaborative team concept which will elevate both the local healthcare environment and local construction partners. In an effort to develop a hospital which is extremely energy efficient, the team installed over 7,000 LED/compact fluorescent light fixtures, 2.5 million ft. of line voltage wire, 5,000 feet of LED Cove lighting, and ½ million feet of systems cabling. Additionally the GECO Systems group provided all voice/data, Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS), infant abduction, CCTV, Card-Access, Nurse-Call, Programmable Lighting Control systems, seven (7) O-R panel boards, 10,000+ switches & receptacles as well as provided all temporary power distribution to accommodate all construction.
