The health care sector has been one of the most active construction markets in the region and Gemellaro Systems Integration, Inc has recently been involved in construction projects with two of the most prominent health care providers: Beaumont Hospitals and the University of Michigan.
GSI is in the process of building the power, lighting and fire alarm systems for the new 5 story, 105,000 square foot Beaumont Physicians Office Building located across Dequindre Road from Beaumont Hospital’s Troy location. It is a part of the $420 million, 780,000 square foot expansion at the busy Troy Beaumont campus. This major expansion has been necessitated by a doubling of admissions since 2000. The office building will house a pharmacy as well as space for individual and group practices with completion scheduled for early 2009.
Additionally, GSI just completed the renovation of an existing space in the University of Michigan Rachel Upjohn Building to create the 12 room Sleep Lab & Temporal Isolation Facility. This is a unique facility dedicated to sleep disorders testing and sleep hygiene interventions. GSI handled the power distribution, the nurse call system and the specialized lighting systems. The specific soundproof requirements of the environment mandated particular care and expertise involving penetrations and installation procedures.
Beyond these two projects, GSI has been involved in the planning and designing of additional health care opportunities and is anticipating a strong increase in revenue pertaining to this particular sector amongst its extensive commercial and industrial base.
