Emergency Electrical Pipe Repair at Northwestern Hospital in Grayslake
While building Northwestern’s new Surgery Center in Grayslake, Il, Pepper Construction ran into a big problem
Northwestern Grayslake Hospital’s 2011, $49 million expansion consists of 70,900 square feet in new construction with the surgery center as its centerpiece. The expansion was awarded LEED Certification by the US Green Building Council. LEED is a performance oriented system designed for rating buildings based on energy and environmental principles for sustainable sites, water efficiency, energy and atmosphere, materials and resources, indoor air quality and innovation design process.
A 4″ diameter electrical pipe that joined the new surgery center expansion to the existing outpatient center was broken under the new concrete foundation and leaking ground water into the existing outpatient center’s electrical panel room at an uncontrollable rate.
The expense to correct the problem was thought to be astronomical and the ground water in the electrical room was extremely dangerous. Pepper Construction called in American Trenchless Technologies, a Platinum Perma-Liner Installer, to solve the problem. A professional solution was found. An expert repair was performed quickly and the hospital had their issue solved for a fraction of the cost they initially feared.
