This unique and modern mid-rise hospital was completed in 2010. Using over 4,000 cubic yards of Solite® concrete to achieve enhanced fire ratings and larger column free bays, the hospital combines both the functions of a traditional hospital and a wellness center. Placed in a campus like setting, the attractive modern facility provides every patient a room with large windows for an exterior view.
Solite® was chosen for significant development of this hospital, which expanded the emergency room complex, cancer center, and the patient long term care pavilion. The hospital’s expansion nearly doubled its size. Solite® was specified in order to achieve a four-hour fire rating for the floors and ceilings.
The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia features a lovely elevated green space plaza that connects various buildings and needed renovation. Solite® engineered soil for trees, plants, and flower beds was selected. Solite® Geofill was used as the bedding for pavers.
