University of Kansas Medical Center Hospital Expansion

Location Kansas City, Kansas
Square Footage 103,290 SF

This complex project added two floors on top of the existing facility, including a 22-bed nursing unit, a 14-bed OCU and a 2-helicopter rooftop landing pad. The United Excel team overcame several challenges, including relocation of the roof-top mechanical unit, extension of 12 existing elevators and three stairways, working within a restrictive city site with limited access and no on-site staging or storage, and ensuring the existing patient care departments remained fully functional during construction. The project was completed ahead of schedule, below budget, and to the client’s satisfaction.
