Two Eye-Opening Projects Score Wins at the BCA Awards

BCA Awards Announcement

Two Award-Winning Projects 

The results are in! We have two projects that have been awarded by the Building Contractors Assocation of Northeast Indiana. After careful consideration and reviewing the square footage, pricing, building process, functionality, and overall features of our jobs, the BCA has selected us as winners in two different categories: 

  • Electric Works took the “Over $12 Million” Division. 
  • Parkview Physicians Group Electric Works Clinic was chosen in the “$1 Million to $5 Million” Division. 

This marks the 20th year that the BCA Annual Awards Program has highlighted standout construction projects in the Northeast Indiana Region. Electric Works, PPG Electric Works Clinic, Project Owners, and Weigand will be officially recognized during the Spring Membership Dinner & Awards Banquet on April 20th

A Team Effort         

We’re proud of what our team has accomplished across all our projects in 2022. It’s the dedication to quality, doing what we say we’re going to do, and our commitment to the client that guides us in each and every job we take on. That being said, those values mean little in the grand scheme if they’re not upheld by individuals, crews, and project teams that believe in their significance too. We’re lucky to have a group that’s devoted to integrity at every level of leadership. From workers to project executives, it’s our mentality to go there together that has helped us succeed time and again throughout the years.  


New Project Announcement: Mercer Health Campus is coming to Marion!

Groundbreaking

It is truly our mission, an honor we don’t take lightly, to care for our community.”

The Doctors are In

Groundbreaking

This fall, we held a groundbreaking ceremony to kick off construction at a new Mercer Health Campus site! The Coldwater, Ohio based health organization is planting a new medical office building at Marion Industrial Park. It will be home to both the Mercer Health Medical Group at Maria Stein and Dr. Heather Kleinhenz when it’s completed.

More Access for Marion

With 75 locals from throughout Marion present in total, it’s clear that many in the area are looking forward to this facility and what it brings to the community. Mindy Kremer, who is the Vice President of Development, Marketing, and Communications at Mercer, said this about the plans:

Mercer Health Marion

 “We are excited to enhance health care services in the Marion community.  At Mercer Health we often talk about caring for our friends, family, and neighbors.  This isn’t just something we say, it is a promise. It is truly our mission, an honor we don’t take lightly, to care for our community.”

We can’t wait to get to work on this new campus! We’re proud to stand with Mercer Health in their mission to provide the best medical care for communities all over Ohio.

New Expansion Topped Out – Parkview Kosciusko

“It will be a place where hopefully they feel like their loved ones can come and receive care, and they feel like they’re safe while they’re there.”

Celebrating the successful completion of the Parkview Kosciusko hospital addition’s frame, we put together a special, final beam. Once we had it primed and ready for signatures, it was signed by everyone who is involved in this project. After that, the tower crane lifted the last piece, where our team secured it. And with that, the construction of the expansion framework was complete!

Watch our team top off the steel right here!

For the County

For Parkview leadership, this accomplishment is a testament to the community that they are serving. “Those grateful patients are always the key to what keeps us going,” says Scott Gabriel (President of Parkview Whitley and Kosciusko Hospitals). This expansion has been an ask by the Warsaw community for years. It will provide more accessibility for patients in the area to receive medical treatment. In the past, residents of Warsaw had to travel to neighboring counties for serious care. However, with the addition of this new section, that problem will remain what it was: a thing of the past.

“We opened up six years ago; the community immediately began asking, ‘When are you going to have inpatient beds; when are you going to have surgery?’ …To be able to say we’ve topped off our expansion project to include those services and more is great.”

Jeffrey Rockett (V.P. of Outpatient Services)

Just like the team at Parkview, we’re so excited to see the progress on this new section! We’re honored to join forces with them once again to meet the needs of this county.


Rehabilitation Hospital of Northern Indiana

Exterior

The Vibra Rehabilitation Hospital in Mishawaka has finally opened it’s doors! The two-story, 56,500 square foot facility located just across the street from Saint Joseph Hospital by Edison Lakes, houses 40 beds for patients who are going through rehabilitation from stroke, brain injury, amputation and a range of medical conditions.

This stunning facility has lots of open spaces for rehab equipment with floor to ceiling windows for patients to be able to feel like they are enjoying the outdoors. The skills labs are equipped with kitchen and laundry appliances, as well as other home related spaces to help adapt to typical day-to-day living. The patient bedrooms have their own ensuite bathrooms where they can also relearn how to engage in self care and hygiene practices. Facilities like this are much needed to help people recover from complicated medical issues, where they can stay longer than a typical hospital would keep them.

Byron Wellness Community Nearing Completion: Drone View


Check out those neighborhoods! ?️ ? ?

 

The residents and staff at Byron Wellness Community will be moving into their new digs next week! Take a look at that beautiful campus, where residents will have their OWN rooms, with their OWN bathrooms (something many of them have never experienced!) and even their own green spaces allowing them to spend time outside without needing a staff member to accompany them.

 

We are so excited for the increased quality of life for the whole Byron Health Center family, as they finally move into the state-of-the-art facility they deserve, to match their state-of-the-art quality of care they provide. Congratulations! ?
