The detailed and critical nature of construction of medical buildings requires specific knowledge and focus in the market. Our extensive experience working in hospitals, medical office buildings, and highly specialized medical care facilities proves that we know how to approach this unique market, and how to solve unconventional construction problems that often present themselves in this arena. Medical buildings may feature extensive structural components to support imaging and diagnostic equipment, x-ray containment, and operatory equipment. They often include complex and highly sophisticated mechanical systems that control air circulation in a specific and precise way. We’ve even built entire areas of an MRI facility without any metal parts, accommodating for the incredible magnetic fields used to generate images of the body.
One of the ways we measure our success is by how often our clients choose to work with Fortunato Construction Group again and again on future projects. Over the years, we’ve worked with dozens of clients on multiple projects, from renovations and expansions to new construction.
This considerable repeat business reflects how carefully attuned we are to the concerns of our clients. We anticipate challenges in advance and provide guidance they can trust. Our team is experienced at navigating the process of the planning, design and construction and can offer guidance on what to expect, recommendations for keeping the project on track, and the leadership to ensure a successful project.
The following is a representative list of medical clients that entrust us with their projects over and over. It is not exhaustive, but is indicative of our depth and breadth of experience.
