Orlando, Fla. — Brasfield & Gorrie recently announced the start of construction on a $14-million expansion project for HCA Healthcare at Northwest Medical Center in Margate, Fla.

Other aspects of the project include modifications to the existing central energy plant with the replacement of a chiller and cooling tower, as well as an expansion and renovation of the Florida Power and Light vault and electrical room.
