Veitas and Veitas Provides Structural Design for High Point Hospital
May 15, 2014
Braintree, MA – Veitas and Veitas Engineers partnered with Anson Courtright to provide structural design for High Point Hospital.
The former St. Luke’s Hospital building is being transformed into a 72-bed, state-of-the-art drug and mental health treatment facility. Extensive renovations of the 62,700sf structure are underway and the new facility is scheduled to open this summer.
A section of the wood framed roof structure was reconstructed to meet non-combustible code requirements. A new stairwell was incorporated into the design, providing universal access from the main level to the second floor. The existing chiller support frame was reworked to accommodate new mechanical equipment and a pedestrian walkway. Additional structural work for this project includes a new elevator pit and shaft, foundation underpinning, exterior wall and slab infills, handicap access points and enclosure walls and footings for two new courtyards.
