Hopedale Medical Complex‘s expansion is chugging along.┬áLocated about two hours north of St. Louis, HMC is constructing an oculus-shaped addition that joins two existing buildings. The 35,000 sq ft expansion includes a new lobby, emergency department, imaging space, an intensive care unit, spa-like luxury patient rooms, and a courtyard garden. The addition will be LEED Silver certified, and we have included renewable energy features such as wind turbines, photovoltaic panels, a geothermal bore field, native prairie landscaping, and flexible outdoor space to be used for community events, like farmers markets. Steve and Neil visit the site every Wednesday, and these are the latest-and-greatest shots from this week’s trip. We’ve included a rendering to help you visualize what the construction images are showing:
