HEALTH & WELLNESS IN CONSTRUCTION PART 2: PERSPECTIVE

July 21, 2010

In 2006 we realized our system of providing health care to employees was broken. We weren’t providing “health” care; we were providing “sick” care.

This issue was addressed during the preconstruction process and, as a result, we researched several alternatives to conventional building systems that are typically constructed on-site. After exploring many options, we settled on a precast foundation and prefabricated wall panels since this approach works well for a building of this size and type. To date the results are very positive.
