Back to Naval ER Page
Vet Industrial performed this general construction project as a Prime Subcontractor to renovate the existing Emergency Department at Naval Hospital Bremerton. As a task order under an IDIQ contract, the scope of work included:
• Installation and configuration of multiple utility lines and other systems
• Rerouting of traffic patterns and parking area
• Demolishing and relocating walls
• Reconfiguring ingress/egress
• Installing new interior finishes, doors, window-walls and architectural accessories
• Installation and maintenance of infectious-control barriers
• Upgrading the facility’s mechanical, electrical and fire-suppression systems
• Upgrading to ADA compliance
• Correcting existing layout deficiencies
• Improving support for increasing numbers of patient visits
The facility was constructed with the flexibility to accommodate a fluctuating number of multiple, simultaneous, patient visits and to process users in a timely and efficient manner with partitioning the flow of space and processing areas as prime consideration, ingress/egress facilitated a smooth and efficient flow of patients, including a clearly defined check-in area for optimal patient processing. The facility also required the installation and configuration of multiple utility lines and other systems to ensure uninterrupted facility operations.
Vet Industrial installed cooling systems to maintain proper refrigeration of sensitive materials. In addition, the emergency department included numerous areas designed to accommodate patients and users while ensuring access to the facility’s primary functions. Vet Industrial maintained strict sanitary and infection-control levels in order to prevent air-borne contaminants from affecting the hospital’s operations, demonstrating our understanding of facility sanitation standards. This effort encompassed maintaining strict air-system conditions in order to meet the Navy’s health and safety requirements. In addition, we configured the emergency department to allow for the installation of complex medical equipment and devices, as needed. Vet Industrial coordinated closely with medical staff and the Navy to ensure the highest-quality project completion while minimizing user delays.
We had a wall mural developed (see photo below) and installed to personalize the project to the Navy’s staff and patients. Weekly progress meetings and open communication with all involved parties ensured on-time completion within budget. Vet Industrial’s outstanding management and performance on this project is best demonstrated by a letter of commendation.
