Norton Brownsboro Pharmacy

Calhoun Construction completed an upgrade to the existing pharmacy inside the Norton Brownsboro Hospital. This intricate work began in August of 2019 and completed just before the New Year. With the tight quarters of working in about a 600sqft space, coordination was key in this project.

The inside of their IV Room, Chemo Room and Ante Room were completely stripped of all finishes, new exhaust fan installed on the rooftop, and fan powered heap filters on the supply air diffusers. A new Clean Room wall system was put in place with all automatic interlocking doors, and the ceiling tiles replaced with Clean Room gasketed tiles. Strict measures were taken for the duration of the project to ensure the safety of not only the pharmacy employees but the patients throughout the hospital.  We constructed an Edge Guard Wall System around the work area, while using hepa filtered air scrubbers to maintain a negative air pressure of -.03  in the workspace.  To offer further protection from contamination an Ante room was also put in place for the cleaning of all tools, debris carts, and personnel exiting the workspace.

This successful project resulted in the Brownsboro Pharmacy following all requirements of the Board of Pharmacy as well as future requirements from the Joint Commission.


Louisville Urban League Sports & Learning Complex

The Louisville Urban League, and community leaders entered into a development agreement to redevelopment of the Heritage West site, a 24-acre acre property in the Russell neighborhood. LUL’s master plan is centered on a 4,000-seat indoor and outdoor track and field facility and will feature community green space and outdoor event space.

The complex will be designed to host a variety of sporting events supported by organizations such as USA Track and Field, and the NCAA, our local and regional public and private schools and local track teams. The facility also will feature retail space and related amenities and will be owned and operated by the LUL.

Calhoun Construction serves as the General Contractor for this project began Fall of 2019.


Norton Healthcare 5R

Norton 5R, located in the Downtown Louisville hospital, was a 2,500 square foot, $500k fast-tracked renovation of an existing pod with nine patient rooms, a work room and a common corridor. The project required close coordination with neighboring pods as utility shutdowns required for the new work could not be isolated to pod 5R. Norton is planning to use pod 5R as a model to renovate several additional pods in the future.

Calhoun Construction Services was proud to serve as the General Contractor for this state of the art facility. Calhoun Construction self performed framing, drywall, acoustical ceiling and painting.


Norton St. Matthews Medical Plaza I

St. Matthews Medical Plaza I is part of the Norton Healthcare system located on Dutchmans Lane in Louisville, KY.  Renovated in 2002, Plaza 1 features 8 floors with approximately 95,000 square feet of On-Campus Class A Medical Office Space.  The building sits in front of the rebranded Norton Women’s and Children’s Hospital opened on Norton Healthcare’s St. Matthews campus in December 2014 after a comprehensive multi-year renovation. The redesigned hospital provides innovative care dedicated to the unique needs of women and children, while continuing to offer emergency, inpatient and outpatient care.

Calhoun Construction served as the General Contractor for the renovation of this medical complex consisting of exterior and interior updates.  The renovation was broken into three phases: exterior upgrades, interior finish upgrades, interior mechanical upgrades.

For the exterior upgrades, the renovation included replacement of the existing glass with new thermally broken store front and double pane glass. The exterior was entirely reclad in drainable EIFS to better match the campus.  All new landscaping accented the building’s new expanded drop off canopy to better serve patients.

On the interior, the entire core was renovated from the existing carpet and wall paper to include high-end LVT, LED light fixtures and laminate wall panels.

Lastly, the building mechanical systems were upgraded to provide better user comfort and energy savings. All 105 of the existing Fan Coil units were replaced along with a new energy-recovery unit air handler. Along with that all new redundent pump systems and BAS were installed.

All of the above work was carefully phased and planned by the Calhoun team working around the 80% occupied tenant spaces.


Norton Pediatrics Phase I

Norton Audobon

Norton Healthcare has grown to be the area’s leading health care provider with some of the most advanced technologies and well-trained physicians, nurses and staff in the area.

Norton Healthcare includes five large hospitals, 13 Norton Immediate Care Centers and 190 physicians practice locations. Through their extensive reach, they are committed to caring for patients and our community. Norton Healthcare operates as a not-for-profit organization.

Norton Healthcare invested $18 million in thermal storage and a cutting-edge hybrid energy plant at Norton Audubon Hospital.

Although it’s a hefty investment, the hospital system’s energy initiative will help save nearly $1 million a year in energy costs, using natural gas to heat and cool the hospital instead of electric.

“We constructed a new hybrid energy plant that combines gas air-cooled chillers and a thermal ice storage system that produces cooling capacity for the building,” said Anthony Mathis, Director of Energy at Norton Healthcare. “Ice is made at night when utility costs are at their lowest, since demand is down. And then ice is melted during the day for the hospital’s cooling needs during the peak hours when utilities are at their maximum cost.

“In addition, the system runs off of natural gas. The heat generated by the natural gas engines is then collected and stored to be reused by a heat recovery process that provides heat and hot water for the building. We should reduce our emissions, which is our carbon footprint, close to 30 to 40 percent.”

The new plant also makes it easier to individually control the temperature in each room using a computer, which is a luxury for patients but a necessity for surgery.

“If room A is 65 degrees, but room B needs to be 72 degrees, the addition… gives us the opportunity to control the rooms as a nurse or as the patient wants it,” Mathis said.

Norton Healthcare started the energy initiative at Norton Audubon Hospital because of its aging infrastructure and rising energy costs. The initiative has resulted in reduced energy and maintenance costs, a smaller carbon footprint and better indoor air quality.

Calhoun Construction partnered with Harshaw-Trane to build a new CEP Building to house new energy efficient mechanical equipment for Norton Audubon. The building utilized micropile foundations with an integrated structural concrete slab and new tank form to house supporting equipment.


Norton Pediatric Phase II

Calhoun Construction completed Phase I of the Norton Children’s Hospital Medical Associates – Shelbyville in 2016 and began Phase II in 2017.

Potential services available in the facility include education, prevention and early intervention for children suffering from chronic illness as well as advocacy and community education centered around childhood obesity management, diabetes management and childhood safety.

Calhoun is the General Contractor for the 9,000 sqft Phase II expansion of the Shelbyville facility. This will include an additional 12 exam/procedure rooms for primary care as well as the introduction of dedicated Cardio and Orthopedic departments to the facility. Due to the expansion two additional exam rooms will be added to the OB/GYN department

Calhoun performed the overall management of the expansion as well as self-performed the drywall and acoustical ceiling specialties.
