Wakefield, RI – South County Hospital has been upgrading its facility through a number of major additions and renovations. The most recent of these upgrades has been the complete gutting and replacement of the Borda Wing’s second floor. The former lab areas were transformed into a new orthopedic wing with 10 patient suites, complete with private baths. The renovations started with existing windows being replaced with new energy-efficient units and continued to the interior spaces with state-of-the-arts patient rooms, complete with med gas connections, mechanical, electrical and fire-suppression installations. The $3 million, six-month contact for the overall work was handled by Warwick-based construction manager E. W. Burman, Inc., and the redesign of the floor was under the supervision of C. W. Design Group of Lexington, Mass. Job superintendent for the Burman firm was Tom Hurst and project manager was Andrew Burman.
