Boldt has a long-standing commitment to hire construction subcontractors from the region in which the project is based whenever possible. At the peak of the project in the summer of 2014, approximately 130 skilled tradespeople will be employed on the site.
“On all of our projects, we put a focus on hiring skilled labor from the immediate region,” said Matt Peterson, Boldt project manager on the site. “Construction projects can be a boost to the immediate region not only due to employment, but from the expenditures those workers make in goods and services while they’re on the job,” Peterson said. The
ThedaCare Medical Center-Shawano project is expected to be completed in early 2015.
The new $50 million facility, will replace the 82-year-old Shawano Medical Center and create a local center for convenient, coordinated health care. It will be located at County B and Highway 22, immediately adjacent to the clinic that currently houses ThedaCare Physicians-Shawano. Its primary design inspiration is patient-focused and wellness-based health care for individuals and families.
The project consists of an addition and remodeling to the existing 76,000 square foot two story ThedaCare ambulatory surgery center and clinic in Shawano, WI, originally built in 2006. The project will bring hospital and clinic services onto one site. The new medical center will have patient beds and both inpatient and outpatient surgery services. The project will also create a new entrance and bring emergency and rehabilitation services to the new site.It will add a dining and kitchen area, and providing new expanded areas for Imaging, Lab, Oncology, Wellness/Rehab, Environmental Services, and Maintenance/Engineering. The completed medical center will be 182,000 square feet.
