The Time We Installed 140+ Windows In A WORKING Hospital
Our GINORMOUS Hospital Windows
Project Is One For The Books
13,000 Square Feet, 2 Months, And
140 + Windows In The Making
At Rosenello’s Windows, Siding, & Roofing, we’ve completed some major commercial window replacement projects, including schools, churches, and local businesses. But when it comes to size, scope, and magnitude, our Henry J. Austin Health Center windows project really takes the cake.
You see, in the fall of 2022, we got the opportunity to truly demonstrate our skills, understanding, and expertise when it comes to commercial building window replacement.
What do we mean by that?
We mean that we took on one of our biggest projects to date – replacing all the windows on a 13,000-square-foot working hospital in Trenton, NJ. And two months and over 140 windows later, the Henry J. Austin Health Center was outfitted with the energy-efficient, dependable windows you’ve come to expect from Rosenello’s.
But how did we do it?
A Working Hospital Means Working With Limitations
As you can imagine, installing windows in an active hospital has very specific restrictions that must be taken into account. After all, we couldn’t just take the easiest approach and go through and remove old windows all willy-nilly, leaving gaping holes exposed before installing the new ones.
We had to strategically work our way around the hospital exterior, causing as little disturbance as possible to patients, staff, and visitors. And we did that one wing, one floor, and one area at a time. This way, we could rope off sections of the hospital we were working on and near without causing unneeded noise or mess.
Using our technical (and compassionate) understanding, we moved through the project in the smoothest, quietest, and most efficient way we knew how…and without getting in the way.
Safety, Safety, Safety
When working around a constant flow of people coming and going, you better believe we were on high safety alert. With so much hospital pedestrian traffic flowing, taking the proper precautions and working slowly and diligently is key!
So, we carefully set up our scaffolding to avoid heavy foot traffic areas, used proper barriers to keep traffic out of work zones, and kept sidewalks clear of hazards. We also cleaned as we went along to keep areas free of debris and unnecessary obstructions.
We may have been working at a health center, but we weren’t looking to give them more patients than they already had.
Saturdays And Sundays Were Part Of The Work Week
Yes, we know hospitals don’t close for the weekend, but often, there is less foot traffic come Saturdays and Sundays. So, we worked right on through the weekend for much of the project.
Plus, since this project was urgent because they were still “open for business,” we needed to guarantee its completion within a reasonable, yet safe, timeline.
This means our incredible and devoted team members often gave up their Saturdays and Sundays to ensure this huge project got completed on time. And with no major hiccups along the way and a deadline met, we’d say it was worth it – this project was a success!
After navigating around 13,000 square feet of an active hospital, installing over 140 windows, and working over a two-month time period, we completed one massive windows project.
