Almost Done!

Construction of the Emergency Center-Northeast is almost completed! Landscaping, irrigation and paving are now complete, and interior finishes continue with flooring, paint, mill work, electrical and mechanical work, plumbing and fire protection.

We're hoping to get employees in the building and training soon and then have the facility open to the public late in the summer after all inspections have been completed.

Here are a few new pictures below!

New Photos Available!

We're making great progress on the new Tallahassee Memorial Emergency Center - Northeast! It's looking more and more like a finished building each day.

The necessary inspections for the first floor have been completed, and the drywall is 50 percent done. We're expecting second floor inspections and drywall hanging to begin this week, and the third floor drywall is scheduled to start early February.

Maybe we'll be able to show you how the inside is coming along soon! In the meantime, here are some new outdoor shots, so you can see our progress. As always, you can follow the construction in real-time at:

Reaching Milestones!

The Christmas and New Year holidays are notorious for slowing down projects, so we're excited that the construction of the new Tallahassee Memorial Emergency Center - Northeast kept moving right along.

We're happy to announce that a construction milestone was recently achieved. We now have the foundation of a roof! The light-weight concrete on the roof deck has been poured. This allows for the roof to be finished within a couple of weeks and provides weather protection for finishing the fireproofing and starting sheet rock hanging.

The construction team will start hanging sheet rock room-by-room as elements like electrical wiring, data, medical gas, in-wall blocking, plumbing and head walls are inspected and verified as correct. Window frames have been installed on the north face second and third floors and will continue around to the east. Light gauge framing of the south screen wall has begun. 

Soon, the construction team will focus both on grading and curbing at the west parking area and installation of the site fire line piping just outside the north face of the building. 

Stay tuned for more updates! And don't forget to check the "Watch Construction" page for live photos!

Half Way There!

Construction of the Tallahassee Memorial Emergency Center - Northeast is half way completed! The walls and ceilings of all three floors are in process and the exterior framing and sheathing of the building is 99 percent completed. The west stairs have been completed, and the east stairs are 75 percent complete.

If you're in the area and have never had the luxury of seeing a concrete pour, there is one scheduled for the roof today! In preparation for the pour, the steel erection crews installed tube steel below the roof for support.

We can't wait until the outside of the building is completed and the inside work begins. Don't forget to check our "Watch Construction" page regularly for real-time construction photos of the emergency center!
