Renovation of the Holy Cross Hospital's 180 patient rooms for a COVID-19 Unit included:
“Our entire team felt really good about working on a project that will help others through difficult times caused by the pandemic. Holy Cross was a project that was truly essential for the health and wellness of our community. We hope that our efforts will play a part in lives being saved.”
Cochran & Mann was involved in a renovation project for two vacant floors in preparation for the COVID-19 pandemic. The state of Maryland was looking for available hospital space to house a COVID unit and utilized the space at Holy Cross Hospital for this critical purpose.
With the help of Cochran & Mann, Whiting-Turner renovated 180 patient rooms in the span of 3-weeks. The renovation included new flooring, ceiling tiles, painting, minor electrical, new TVs, window blinds, and hospital curtains.
The Cochran & Mann team was responsible for painting the two floors. All materials supplied to the project were from our local PPG Paints provider. All patient rooms were painted an eggshell satin finish while the bathrooms and wet areas used PPG acrylic epoxy semi-gloss finish to hold against humidity and withstand constant cleaning by hospital staff.
Cochran & Mann worked 10 hour days, 6 days a week to meet the critical schedule deadline. In addition, our team had to maintain distancing while working with all other trades, as well as following the Holy Cross Hospital COVID-19 health requirements.
Cochran & Mann turned around their contribution to the project within the critical deadline set by the hospital. The two new floors have since been used as a COVID-19 unit for the state of Maryland and have helped many Marylanders recover from the virus.
“As Senior Project Manager on the project, it felt good in talking with the Whiting-Turner leadership when he said Cochran & Mann had hit it out of the park,” said Cochran. “He said our foreman and especially Adrian Gongora our field superintendent had been great to work with and followed through on everything
asked of them.”
