Hauppauge, NY – April 18, 2023 – Axis Construction Corporation, an award-winning leader in off-site modular and conventional commercial construction for the Northeast, has been awarded the emergency department expansion for Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital–Plymouth of Beth Israel Lahey Health system. The completed facility will add approximately 6,900 square feet to the Emergency Department, including 25 patient rooms, nurses’ station, restrooms/showers, plus medical prep and chart work areas, nourishment stations, data and electrical rooms, and other amenities.
“Mark Tarlton, Senior Director of Facility Planning & Construction at Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Plymouth, chose off-site modular construction to accelerate completion and minimize disruption to their space-constrained campus,” says Brent Doucette, Business Development Manager of the Modular Division for Axis Construction. “After evaluating numerous modular partners, they chose Axis Construction because of our extensive portfolio of successful modular healthcare projects. In addition to Axis Construction’s proven track record, our deep familiarity with the strict regulatory regimes associated with permanent healthcare facilities gave Mark and architect, Sean Greene, R.A., AIA, Principal of n|e|m|d Architects, complete confidence in our ability to meet their tight deadline, work within a confined footprint, reduce construction dust, noise, and safety hazards at the site, and fully deliver on their design vision.”
Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Plymouth broke ground in February 2023, preparing the site and laying the foundation and required retaining wall. At the same time, modular partner MODLOGIQ began manufacturing module in their New Holland, PA plant. Compared to conventional construction, this simultaneous production approach will cut months off the schedule. As soon as the foundation and site prep work are complete—targeted for June of 2023—the 12 modules will be transported and installed in a matter of days, greatly reducing the amount of construction disruption on the hospital grounds. With the modules finished to an 85% completion level—including plumbing, AC, lighting, drywall, doors, windows, flooring, HVAC, FF&E, and fully installed fire safety and medical gas and telemetry systems—finishing off the modules and restoring the site will be completed in record time for an accelerated opening date of November 2023.
