General Contractor: Charles Perry Partners, Inc.
The south tower expansion of North Florida Regional added neonatal rooms, birthing units, adult-intensive care facilities and specialized orthopedic services. This project was a 3-story vertical expansion on top of an existing 4 story building. There was approximately 28,000 sf of panels made in the Tampa factory and shipped to Gainesville to be installed by the tower crane. One of the biggest challenges was the expectation that all windows and reveals needed to align with the existing structure. Wal-Mark laser scanned the structure to locate existing window openings and reveals, then used this information to create panel joint and window opening layout for the new structure.
