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.
