Health Science & Nursing School

Powers & Sons served as general contractor for an interior renovation and remodel of a 22,600 SF Ivy Tech Community College health science and nursing facility located at 9900 Connecticut Drive in Crown Point, Indiana. Our scope of work included converting existing space into 16 patient training stations for students. Each station is a fully simulated hospital space with privacy curtain and call system, with oxygen lines, vacuum lines, and electrical outlets on the head wall. New plumbing and sinks were installed. An intensive care unit (ICU) was created in addition to two nursing labs, two respiratory labs, and an observation room. The first phase of work was completed in 30 working days, ten days ahead of schedule, for a total project duration of 50 working days. The building remained occupied and operational throughout construction, which was completed in August 2015.
