High Concrete Group Shapes New Orthopedic and Spine Center in Cincinnati
Denver, Pa. (December 29, 2013)—High Concrete Group LLC is producing precast concrete components for a new Orthopedic and Spine Center (OSC). Christ Hospital's new, 381,000-square-foot healthcare facility in Cincinnati, Ohio, is scheduled for completion in 2015 and will provide orthopedic, spine and sports medicine treatment options for patients.
High Concrete Group was awarded the $6.7 million contract by Messer Construction Company, a full-service construction company specializing in healthcare facilities, located in Cincinnati. A total of 960 precast pieces will be erected starting in October 2013. The project was designed by Chicago-based Skidmore, Owens & Merrill, with local design representation from Champlin Architecture's Cincinnati office. Additional consulting services were proved by THP Limited, from Cincinnati.
The overall design will enhance the patient's experience by promoting peaceful, tranquil spaces that provide the best therapeutic environment. The exterior serves complex needs that blend the existing hospital buildings and historic neighborhood, while reflecting the innovative and modern treatments available at the new OSC. The precast concrete will be produced at High Concrete Group's Springboro, Ohio plant.
