The demands of a modern healthcare facility are many and varied. As with many buildings like this, it is important to have the right structural engineer on your design team to be sure that proper building materials are selected and that correct design decisions are made in a timely manner so that the final project reflects and responds to the needs of the end user.

Providence has designed healthcare facilities using a multitude of contemporary building materials for projects of varied shapes and sizes. Within the realm of healthcare projects, Providence has also been involved in focused projects such as operating room fit-outs needing to provide the latest advances in operating room and imaging devices which impact structural systems.

"Champion Painting was awarded the contract for Surface Preparation and Coating Application of the Tribeca Pedestrian Bridge, which spans the West Side Highway at Chambers Street in one of the busiest areas of NYC. We knew that this would be a challenging project in all aspects, from protection of traffic and the travelling public to performing the coating application during the coldest months of the year. Champion Painting had utilized the services of Providence Engineering, and specifically Patti Seitz on numerous other projects. For this project, Patti’s design took into account all requirements and criteria. Once the design phase was complete, and while maintaining constant communication with Champion Painting, Patti worked very closely with our steel fabrication shop during the entire process, fielding and answering all questions from the fabricator. As they say, “the proof is in the pudding”, and this turned out to be the perfect dish. This is probably the first job where everything on the drawings matched up perfectly with everything in the field. From the intricate steel cable system to the fabricated outrigger system, a very difficult project was made less so, largely to a design that took into account all of our needs. Great job Patti, and Providence Engineering."
