Customers with specialized plumbing and HVAC building requirements rely on us at A. T. Chadwick Company. Since 1966, we have helped provide all types of systems for buildings old and new. In this project we were granted the contract to install the plumbing and HVAC systems for the Buerger Building at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP).
Our customer had already experienced our quality design, construction, and installation, as we had previously worked on the Ruth and Tristan Colket building on the same campus. The Buerger Building was specially designed to accommodate advanced pediatric care. Every medical procedure that could be done in other hospitals, such as MRIs and chemotherapy, were also to be performed at this new building. The building was to have a number of additional features as well, including a rock climbing wall and a large garden on both the ground and sixth floors. These specialized architectural features added considerably to the complexity of our job, and our challenges didn’t stop there. The project also entered a compressed schedule starting in January 2014 and ending in May of the same year. We needed to find innovative methods to finish the project in a timely manner, all with no compromise on quality.
