When Central DuPage Hospital needed to increase capacity and house more patients, they turned to Pepper for construction of their new bed tower.
- Four floors house 204 patient rooms across 3 wings
- The lower level houses 25,000 square feet of executive offices, auditorium and conference areas
- 7,000-square-foot ambulance bay connects to the existing emergency department.
- Certified LEED Silver for construction waste recycling, SMACNA interior air quality standards, low-emitting adhesives and use of regional materials.
For the bed tower project we recommended products with higher recycled material content, strategized to increase acoustical tile and carpet construction waste recycling and developed a "Green Advantage" training program for our subcontractors, all of which helped us achieve additional LEED Innovation in Design points for the project.
