St. Mary’s chooses FCI to construct new phase
The next phase of the multimillion-dollar Century Project at St. Mary’s Hospital and Regional Medical Center will be led by FCI Constructors, it was announced Thursday.
The total estimate for the project is $40 million, hospital officials said, which equates to $23.3 in construction costs; $5.3 million in fees, project management and other permitting costs; $4.7 million in design and consultant costs; and more than $3 million in both equipment and communications.
The latest phase will complete buildout of floors 9 through 12 of the hospital’s modern tower, which were left unfinished during initial construction. The contract calls for floors 11 and 12 to be finished so they can house two patient units, a rehabilitation unit and the hospital’s surgical nursing unit.
Stan Kiser, project manager with FCI, estimated that 30 to 35 local subcontracting companies with 250 to 300 local tradesmen would be put to work in conjunction with the project.
Local firm Chamberlin Architects, in partnership with H&L Architecture of Denver, were previously announced as designers on the project.
Construction on this phase of the project is set to begin this fall, with occupancy of floors 11 and 12 expected in the fall of 2015.
