New Helideck at Burlington Hospital Quickens Emergency Department Arrivals, Improve Patient Outcomes

Construction of a 3,000-square-foot, one-story, elevated helideck at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center in Burlington, Massachusetts is complete.

BOND Building Construction completed construction of this $3-million Design-Build project in collaboration with FEC Heliports, Cube 3 Architects, RW Sullivan Engineering, Souza True & Partners, Allen & Major Associates and Haley & Aldrich.

The new helideck, now located outside of the LHMC’s emergency department, will provide quicker access to the hospital. The pre-existing helipad was a short distance away from the hospital campus and only accessible via ambulance transfer.

BOND Building engaged FEC Heliports to design and build the helideck. The construction required drilled caissons, concrete grade beams and structural steel. The MEPs are fed from inside the ground floor of the building to provide fire suppression and snow melt systems to the deck.
