Providence St. Vincent Reskin
The main reason for construction was to do external repairs, to make it water-tight and for energy efficiency. Those external repairs involve recladding the exterior with a new aluminum and glass skin.
The new exterior curtain wall, or skin, will save energy and help the hospital better control temperatures. Work on the building also will include new electrical and air distribution systems, making it more modern.
The final part of construction will be expansion of patient rooms on the sixth through ninth floors, made possible by the extra room provided by the new exterior skin. Patient rooms on the lower levels were previously remodeled. The building also has three below-grade levels for the emergency department, parking and storage.
