BWH Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

Brigham and Women's Hospital
Boston, Massachusetts

In response to the increased demand for single family rooms for newborns and their families, the Brigham and Women's Hospital neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) is undergoing reconfigurations to transition from a traditional layout into a single-family room model.  The project includes a 15,000 square foot addition to extend the sixth floor beyond the existing fifth floor and a gut renovation of the existing 19,000 square foot NICU.  TG Gallagher has a long-standing history of building complex projects in the healthcare industry with Walsh Brothers and therefore was selected to provide in-depth mechanical, plumbing, and sprinkler system solutions for the upgrades and new construction of the NICU.

TG Gallagher understands the importance of continuous functionality and therefore ensured that all of the mechanical systems were fully operational during the entire duration of construction.  Relying heavily on pre-fabrication and “out of the box” planning, TG Gallagher completed the challenging 36-month project without affecting the daily routine of the patients and staff. The completed project provides 66-beds total with appropriate support, family lounge, consult, and multipurpose rooms included.
