BOSTON, August 22, 2011 — Jones Lang LaSalle’s Construction team has completed an interior renovation for Boston Medical Center in its Preston Family Buildings Center for Endocrinology, Diabetes, Nutrition and Weight Management on 732 Harrison Avenue Boston. The $2.5 million project provides the community with contemporary, state of the art patient care facility. Jones Lang LaSalle is the Construction Manager/General Contractor.
Patient treatment and common areas in the new 10,000-square-foot hospital clinic on the second floor have been significantly upgraded. Features include: upgraded HVAC and electrical systems, new finishes, comfortable check in and waiting areas, and other system upgrades and improvements on the existing floor. The construction work was multi-phased so as not to interrupt clinic operations.
“The construction for the second floor went extremely well and did not impact patient care during any of the phases,” said Anthony Lanci, construction project manager of Boston Medical Center. “Jones Lang LaSalle’s project superintendent Niles Carter did an outstanding job with communication back to the BMC project team for any potential shutdowns. The Preston building is one of the most difficult buildings on campus to work on because of the low ceiling to deck heights. Even with those difficulties Jones Lang LaSalle completed the project ahead of schedule and under budget.”
“We are pleased to have delivered the project ahead of schedule with no impact on daily patient service,” said Jones Lang LaSalle Senior Vice President and Construction Manager Larry Carpenter. “This was achieved through careful planning, and a tight collaborative effort between our long-standing client Boston Medical Center and all contractors.”
Joining Larry on the Jones Lang LaSalle Construction team was Managing Director and Project Executive Steven Wassersug, Senior Superintendent Niles Carter, and Senior Estimator Chris Hardiman.About Jones Lang LaSalle ConstructionJones Lang LaSalle offers comprehensive services as a construction manager, general contractor and design/builder, completing over 500 diverse assignments annually.
