Case Studies Engineering Health: A Glimpse into Memorial Healthcare’s Key Upgrades

Memorial Regional Hospital – Hollywood, Florida

The Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood, FL was in great need of a new lift station and force main. The 70+ year system was a concern with the Hospital’s Facilities Department and the force main couldn’t handle the anticipated flows and pressure. SAFEbuilt’s team of professionals stepped in to prevent further internal build-up, corrosion, and overall aging of building.

Goal

Our main goal was to provide Memorial Regional Hospital with construction maintenance and utility upgrades for an improved wastewater collection/transmission system with a better overall operational function.

Spotlight

The Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood, FL opened in 1953 and is one of the largest hospitals in Florida. Previously, the station’s force main consisted of 2,800 linear feet of old cast iron pipe that due to decades of corrosion and internal build-up, required a replacement.

Our Calvin, Giordano & Associates, Inc., team of professionals were able to remove the existing master and new parking garage pump stations, grout existing force main, install new tri-plex submersible pump station and piping, install new top slab with an access hatch and safety grate, install new gravity sewer, upgrade the internal control panel appurtenances, and replace the force main with 12-inch HDPE pipe. The force main was installed using horizontal directional drilling, which limits traffic disruption and the need for future re-construction.
