The new Barrow Hospital is the largest and most significant project in Barrow in the last 30 years. Construction on the project has been continuous since August 2010, including working through the wintertime periods, which involves sequencing temperature-sensitive work. The Barrow Replacement Hospital is an approximately 100,000-square-foot, two-story hospital. The hospital will be I2 occupancy with 8 patient rooms, exam rooms, a pharmacy, dental and vision facilities, along with LDRP rooms, a laboratory, and physical therapy abilities. The building itself is a Type 1B fully-sprinkled construction with a lower level utility crawl space, and the structure will be elevated a minimum of three feet off the ground to accommodate snow blow-through. The structure will be steel-framed with a steel pile foundation system. Construction completion is scheduled for December 15, 2012.
