BOSTON, Mass. — The Jones Lang LaSalle construction team has completed an interior renovation for Boston Medical Center’s Endocrinology, Diabetes, Nutrition and Weight Management department in the Preston Family Building in Boston. The $2.5-million project provides the community with contemporary, state-of-the-art patient care facility. Jones Lang LaSalle is the Construction Manager and General Contractor.
Patient treatment and common areas in the new 10,000-square-foot hospital clinic on the second floor of the Preston Family Building have been significantly upgraded. Features include upgraded HVAC and electrical systems, new finishes, comfortable check-in and waiting areas, and other system upgrades and improvements on the existing floor. The construction work was multi-phased so as not to interrupt clinic operations.
“The construction for the second floor went extremely well and did not impact patient care during any of the phases,” said Anthony Lanci, Construction Project Manager with the Boston Medical Center. “Jones Lang LaSalle’s Project Superintendent Niles Carter did an outstanding job with communication back to the BMC project team for any potential shutdowns. The Preston building is one of the most difficult buildings on campus to work on because of the low ceiling-to-deck heights. Even with those difficulties Jones Lang LaSalle completed the project ahead of schedule and under budget.”
“We are pleased to have delivered the project ahead of schedule with no impact on daily patient service,” said Jones Lang LaSalle Senior Vice President and Construction Manager Larry Carpenter. “This was achieved through careful planning and a tight collaborative effort between our long-standing client Boston Medical Center and all contractors.”
