Project Overview

Ideal Contracting self-performed the structural and miscellaneous steel for a new three-story hospital, consisting of over 1,000 tons of structural steel. ProMedica Hospital was the first project in which Ideal utilized SidePlate connections, which eliminated the need for permanent vertical bracing. As a result, productivity was increased and erection safety was improved.

Underground piping was installed prior to Ideal being on-site, creating multiple logistical constraints. To avoid conflict with the piping, Ideal carefully planned out crane paths and strategically placed crane mats over underground pipes. These adjustments allowed for both Ideal Contracting and other subcontractors to continue to work simultaneously. Ideal Contracting performed and completed all work with zero safety incidents, ensuring everyone went home safely.
