RALEIGH, N.C. — Brasfield & Gorrie recently completed construction of a freestanding emergency department at Carolinas HealthCare System SouthPark in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The project, which totaled $17.5 million in construction costs, involved a one-story, 30,000-square-foot freestanding emergency department, as well as a three-level, 60,000-square-foot parking deck addition. Located adjacent to the medical buildings and urgent care operation at Carolinas HealthCare System SouthPark, the facility includes 14 treatment rooms, two observation rooms, laboratories and a pharmacy.
Serving as construction manager, Brasfield & Gorrie’s Raleigh office partnered with architect BBH Design on this project. The team incorporated numerous innovations in the construction of this facility, including the use of Building Information Modeling to a degree not previously seen in the Charlotte market.
The 24-hour emergency department opened to the public on May 12.
