Greeley, Colo. — Pinkard Construction began construction on a renovation of the Emergency Department of Banner Health’s North Colorado Medical Center.
The 13,500 sq. ft. project consists of an update of emergency department finishes which will include replacing the countertops and refacing millwork at the nurse stations, wall protection throughout the corridors, replacing light fixtures, reworking lighting controls, and painting throughout corridors and bathrooms.
The project is part of Pinkard's companywide commitment to their healthcare clients, including a push to certify project team members through partner organizations so they are experts on important patient safety concepts. Quentin Lowe, the onsite superintendent supervising the work, is a Certified Healthcare Constructor through the American Hospital Association.
“By earning the CHC, I wanted to show our clients that I have the very specific qualifications and experience necessary to execute their project,” said Lowe. "These facilities have important safety and infection control concerns, so it is important that we know how to handle them.”
The project will be completed under Pinkard’s special projects group, founded in 2021. This division was created to formalize the company’s commitment to providing existing and future clients’ small project needs with the same client-first services Pinkard is known for.
“Our teams have a lot of renovation and healthcare experience and they provide a client experience that is top-notch,” Jim Pagano, Director of Pinkard’s Special projects division. “I want to give Banner access to that same level of service on a smaller scale.”
To date, Pinkard has completed over 55 healthcare projects and more than 243 renovations/expansions across the Colorado Front Range.
