The new Franciscan Health Michigan City is located on an 86-acre site at the northwest corner of U.S. 421 and Interstate 94. The $243 million facility has 123 private, inpatient beds, robust outpatient services with cutting-edge diagnostic imaging equipment and the most advanced, life-saving innovations and patient amenities. One of the main challenges was soundproofing the facility to quiet I-94 traffic, so our team incorporated acoustical glazing and glass for noise control. More than 300 Tradespeople worked on the 35-acre construction site to complete the hospital by the end of 2018. Our Building Information Modeling (BIM) department was crucial throughout the entire process to ensure the structure was accurate as possible before breaking ground.
