This newsletter is part of Enloe Medical Center’s commitment to keep you informed about significant construction activity for our expansion project. Updates for the next two months include:
What to expect in May and June – Upcoming work planned for the construction of our one-story
building, which will provide a much-needed expansion of our Emergency Department, includes:
■ Concrete pour. We have scheduled a May 1 concrete pour. We expect to pour the entire slab as part of that project. This will involve some truck traffic.
■ Exterior walls and roof edge. Welding and framing of our exterior walls and roof edge of the
new building will be next on the schedule. This is expected to take place in May. Framing is not
typically loud; however welding, which will take place on the roof, can involve some noise.
■ Steel placement. A full week after the welding and framing of the exterior walls take place, in
approximately mid-May, we will be able to begin placing steel. This work involves noise from several sources: beeping of trucks, and banging of the steel into place. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the loudest (such as jackhammering), this particular job should be at about a 5.
■ Fireproofing. Over a couple of days, the building will be fire-proofed. This can be somewhat
noisy, less so than steel placement.
■ Scaffolding and EIFS. From mid-May to June, the construction site will become a busy
workplace. As soon as May we expect to put up scaffolding and begin work on the EIFS (stucco).
Starting in June, we expect to begin enclosing the building. This work will take a few months.
Thank you for your patience – If you have been hearing any of the work taking place on our
construction site, we apologize and thank you for your patience. Please do know that we hold our
contractor to the work hours established by the City of Chico, and we strive with only some
exceptions to work from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. The times night work has occurred, it has been with strict adherence to the City policy that governs that type of work and noise.
While we do our best to project dates, they are subject to change due to factors including weather and permits. If you have questions or concerns, feel free to contact Bill Seguine, Director of Property Development and Facilities Management, at (530) 864-1322 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
