VA Buildout

This 14,500 square-foot buildout for Humana, Inc. is located in Houma, La. Centered in a retail center, this project included the demolition of this existing facility from previous tenants.

The flooring was cut and patched to run sewer lines for new examination sinks and restrooms.

J&S Construction added metal stud walls which included insulation and sheetrock on each side. Since the building did not have an existing sprinkler system, corridors were constructed with one-hour fire rating to facilitate safe egress.

Cabinets, acoustical ceilings and floor finishes were also included, as well as hollow metal frames and pre-finished solid corridors. A 400-amp electrical service was installed for lighting and receptacles. Cat-5 cabling was installed, running from each exam room/administration area to the owner’s IT room. A nurse call system was installed for each restroom, as well for the mental help therapy/group rooms.

The existing HVAC system was reused and duct work was remodeled and added to condition each room. All sinks are stainless steel, and all bathrooms were constructed to be handicap accessible. The facility also includes laboratories, blood draw areas and a teleretinal imaging area.

This project was completed September 2013 and was the fourth contract between J&S Construction and Humana.
