EW Howell Construction Group Expands Healthcare Division

PLAINVIEW, N.Y. – EW Howell Construction Group has expanded its Healthcare Division with the promotion and hiring of three executives. Robert Timperio has been promoted to vice president, and Chris Caponegro and Daniel Abbruzzese have joined the division as project executives.

The company’s Healthcare team has provided general contracting and construction management services to some of the New York area’s leading healthcare and assisted-living providers, including Good Samaritan Hospital, Southampton Hospital, Montefiore Medical Center, Stony Brook Hospital, Northwell Health and Sunrise Assisted Living, among others. They are currently providing core and shell and interior construction services for Long island’s largest development, the $300-million Stony Brook Medical and Research Translation project located on Stony Brook’s Academic Medical Center campus. The superstructure is 95 percent complete and the interiors are about 20 percent complete.

The project includes two separate buildings: construction of the 245,000-square-foot MART building and a 225,000-square-foot Hospital Pavilion. The eight-level MART will be devoted to cancer research and care, including the new home for the Stony Brook University Cancer Center. The 10-level Hospital Pavilion will contain 150 inpatient beds; two of these floors will be dedicated to a new Stony Brook Children’s Hospital. The expansion also includes 12 new classrooms and a 300-seat auditorium.
