Boldt Honored with National Awards for 2 Healthcare Projects

The Boldt Company has been honored with several awards from national organizations recognizing recent construction projects.

The company won a Lean in Design award from the Lean Construction Institute for work done on the Pleasant Prairie Medical Center located in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin. The $130-million project opened in the summer of 2020, and is owned by Advocate Aurora Health. The Boldt Company provided construction management on the project and HGA Architects was responsible for design work.

The medical center was designed to offer the best patient experience and provide new and expanded services to meet the rapidly growing healthcare needs of individuals living in the surrounding communities in southeastern Wisconsin.

When Aurora Health Care merged with Advocate Health Care in 2018, the design/construction team reorganized plans for a new site in Pleasant Prairie after the initial design had been completed at an alternate site. The design adaptation happened without impact to schedule, relying on best practices, system standards and Lean project delivery innovation to achieve design and construction objectives.

This is the first Lean in Design award from LCI and recognizes businesses and projects that deliver outstanding design, while advancing the industry through collaborative Lean project delivery.

The International District Energy Association awarded the Milwaukee Regional Medical Center Thermal Services its System of the Year award. The award is the highest honor from IDEA and recognizes district energy systems that provide high-level performance and service.

From 2015 to 2018, Boldt provided construction management with project partner Burns & McDonnell, to transform the medical center’s aging power plant. Project goals were to increase resiliency, reduce costs, improve efficiency and better the environmental profile of the system. Construction teams recommended building a bifurcated plant, then built a temporary power plant to meet campus needs, while the 66-year-old power plant was demolished and rebuilt. The project called for removing old steam-driven turbines, four boilers and old infrastructure and replacing with new boilers, chillers, water pumps, a three-cell cooling tower and renovating office space and control rooms.

During the three-year project, teams continued to keep energy services online to support patient care, medical education and research.
