IEI General Contractors, a leader in construction management and construction site safety in Green Bay, was presented with a pair of prestigious safety awards at its spring safety meeting.
Bellin Health Expands in Marinette, Wisconsin
Location: Marinette, Wisconsin
When Bellin Health decided to expand its service offerings in Northern Wisconsin, the Green Bay-based healthcare system engaged IEI General Contractors to serve as healthcare general contractor for its new Bellin Health Marinette clinic.
Residents in the Marinette area now have access to a state-of-the-art Bellin Health medical clinic that features a linear accelerator for cancer radiation treatments. The linear accelerator, which delivers high-energy x-rays directly to the patient’s tumor, required special construction methods including a special radiation shielding concrete block system for the walls and ceiling.
IEI had served as Bellin Health’s healthcare contractor for its Cancer Team facility near Austin Straubel International Airport in 2008, and the Green Bay-based healthcare organization tabbed IEI again for its new Marinette medical building construction. IEI teams also completed concrete, masonry and carpentry work on the two-story, 78,000-square-foot building.
The new Bellin Health Marinette facility opened in October 2016 after an aggressive construction schedule completed on time and on budget. IEI brought together a solid team that included other highly experienced subcontractors who have a good history with Bellin.
Site preparation also required specialized techniques after the removal of a former Gustman Automotive Group dealership. Remediation work removed most of the petroleum contaminants from the soil, and a vapor mitigation system under the building’s footprint safely removes residual gases.
Operating in a similar fashion to a drain tile system, a thick membrane between the earth and the building’s concrete slab traps any residual gases and transfers them into the vapor mitigation system to be exhausted out of the roof. All building joints were also sealed to capture gases and vent them out through the mitigation system.
