Construction Update

Tuesday, October 04, 2011 - Danbury, CT

An architect's rendered version of the new tower building for Danbury Hospital


The precast concrete components of the new garage west addition which was completed July 29th. We immediately started to add a fourth level of precast concrete components to the existing Blue garage which was completed August 31st. We will now begin sealing, caulking, and installing fire protection which will be finished by mid January 2012. This will allow the entire garage to be opened, which will terminate the busing of employees. At the same time, road work will continue on Hospital and Tamarack Avenues through mid-November 2011 to improve that intersection and widen Hospital Avenue.  

New Tower

The North Tower Expansion schedule targets breaking ground on November 15, 2011, with the construction completion targeted for July 2014. Move-in activities by the hospital would then follow. The project permitting approvals, and financing process have gone very well (ahead of schedule) and, with the early bidding of the site/steel, and concrete packages, we anticipate breaking ground as early as mid-October of this year. Additionally, we are finalizing the construction and renovation schedules, and feel that we may be able to complete construction by the spring of 2014, potentially allowing the hospital early occupancy and move-ins to be completed by summer 2014.

We will continue to review available options and to improve these target dates.
