Bryn Mawr Project Honored for Construction Excellence

Bryn Mawr Hospital’s new patient pavilion was presented with the General Builder Contractors Association (GBCA) Construction Excellence Award in the healthcare category last evening at the 22nd annual Construction Excellence Awards (CEA).

Ballinger provided MEP engineering services for the project, which was created in response to the Mainline Health System’s need for a market-competitive, contemporary healthcare facility committed to serving its community. Delivering on this need, the facility includes improvements such as private rooms, two medical/surgical telemetry units, an intensive care unit, a high-tech surgical suite, and maternity, labor and delivery, and NICU units. LEED Silver certification, a green roof, an advanced emergency power system, and techniques to reduce long-term ownership costs showcase this project as both resilient and sustainable. Ballinger’s innovative contributions include a reimagined HVAC system that not only satisfies expectations and important healthcare guidelines, but does so while prioritizing sustainability.

Winners were honored at an awards ceremony in Center City Philadelphia on November 21.
